Cruise ships to stop in Olympia

May 24th, 2017 by Ken

American Cruise Line has put the Port of Olympia on its 2018 schedule.

Beginning in late September of that year, a 175-passenger ship will dock at the Port of Olympia and discharge its passengers for day tours and visits to the local area.

Port Commissioner Bill McGregor said he has been working on the idea for more than three years.  Representatives of the cruise line visited the port recently and said their new ship would fit perfectly in port facilities.

The cruise line staff will work with the Visitor and Convention Bureau for on-shore trips and activities.

The visits are part on the 11-day fall cruise schedule.   If the visits work out, the cruise line may add Olympia to its seven-day Puget Sound summer cruise.
