Cape May – Lewes Ferry Offers Special Valentine’s Weekend Get-Away Package
Romantic Package Includes Champagne and Homemade Fudge

(Cape May, NJ) Love is in the air – and on the Delaware Bay! Back by popular demand, the Cape May – Lewes Ferry is offering a special Valentine’s weekend package, valid Friday, February 12 through Monday, February 15, for a special romantic getaway cruise on the Ferry. Good for both one-way and roundtrip cruises, this Lover’s Special comes complete with champagne and fudge. Like the Love Boat of the 1970s -- if you have your mind set for romance, come aboard – we’re expecting you!

“Winter may usher in cold weather, but a trip on the Ferry this Valentine’s Day weekend is sure to warm your heart,” said Jennifer Shivers, Customer Service Manager for the Ferry. “From ferry-tale weddings and memorable wedding proposals to that first date, romance is alive at the Ferry. The resort communities of Victorian Cape May and historic Lewes boast plenty of first class restaurants and inviting Bed & Breakfast establishments to make your weekend getaway something special! What better way to begin or conclude that getaway than with a romantic cruise aboard the ferry.”

Available on any departure during the weekend, the package includes ferry passage, vouchers for a glass of champagne and a box of homemade Laura’s Fudge. Package participants must be 21 years or older to be eligible for the champagne and fudge. The Ferry will also be offering drink and craft beer specials – including Bloody Marys, Mimosas, and Orange Crushes – at the terminals and aboard the vessel during this weekend celebration.

Shivers noted that the Ferry will also be distributing heart shaped car magnets free to all travelers on Sunday, February 14. “Valentine’s Day is a special holiday for us and we have fun surprising our passengers with free giveaways on key holidays,” Shivers added. “It’s our version of a Valentine’s Day card to show our love and appreciation to our customers and hopefully some will put them on their vehicles to display their Ferry love back, although many opt to use them as refrigerator magnets.”

Reservations are required and must be made no later than February 10, 2016. To book your special ferry Valentine package, please contact our Guest Services Department at 1-800-643-3779 (FERRY) during the hours of 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM daily to reserve your special package.
