American Cruise Lines launches Puget Sound cruises // (c) 2012 American Cruise Lines
American Cruise Lines has added a new itinerary for 2013 focusing on Puget Sound and Washington's San Juan Islands.
Offered aboard the 100-passenger American Spirit, the roundtrip cruises will depart from Seattle.
The new itinerary will introduce guests to the pristine areas of the Pacific Northwest and the San Juan Islands. Guests will discover wildlife and historically rich ports, and they will have intimate contact with the people and natural wonders of these regions.
Washington ports of call for the trip include Seattle, Anacortes, Friday Harbor, Port Townsend and Poulsbo, then back to Seattle.
Inaugural cruises are slated to begin on April 6, 2013. Aboard the American Spirit, passengers enjoy such amenities as oversized staterooms and bathrooms, private balconies and elevators, locally-inspired cuisine and personalized service.
“Following the terrific response to our Alaska and Columbia and Snake River itineraries, Puget Sound was a natural next step,” said American Cruise Lines vice president Timothy Beebe. “Our further expansion into the Pacific Northwest adds even more variety to the unique yet close-to-home cruises we offer. We look forward to welcoming new and past guests aboard to discover this beautiful region of the West Coast.”
