Brighton Beach

Old Man River is in their shoes, these seniors are on a sea cruise!

Residents at Shore View Nursing and Rehabilitation Center traveled around the “world” on a sea cruise without ever leaving shore.

The mateys danced and sang their way through “Spain, France, Israel and Italy” with trivia contests navigated by staff members dressed in festive sailor garb. The center was transformed into a cruise ship festooned with flag pennants from the countries visited, along with boat-themed decorations.

Following cruise protocol, the crew held mock cruise-safety training sessions, teaching the sea-faring group what to do if the ship hit an overzealous iceberg or missed the sand-bar and went aground.

In between the safety sessions and fun activities, land-lubbers enjoyed a Spanish dance performance, on-board games, and of course, tasty treats.

Shore View Nursing and Rehabilitation Center [2865 Brighton Third St. at Neptune Avenue in Brighton Beach, (718) 891–4400].
