Mother's Day Cruise Kicks off M/S Mount Washington's 140th Cruise Season

WEIRS BEACH, NH (April 30th)-Upholding a long tradition, the M/S Mount Washington completed her Shakedown Cruise today.

The Shakedown Cruise is an official state inspection of the M/S Mount Washington that gives state and local officials, members of New Hampshire’s tourism industry, and the media the opportunity to climb aboard and observe the ship as she moves through her annual operating maneuvers on Lake Winnipesaukee. 

The Mount offers its first public cruises on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 13th. The Mother's Day Champagne Brunch Cruise marks the opening of the 2012 season. The Mother’s Day cruise includes a two and a half hour scenic cruise, a complete champagne brunch buffet and live entertainment. This special brunch is offered at two different times: 10 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Fares are $39 for adults and $19 for children 5-12. Children under 5 are free.

This also marks the 120th season of the U.S. Mail Boat Sophie C. The Motor Vessel Sophie C. on is the oldest floating post office in the United States. Each season she provides mail service on Lake Winnipesaukee, NH, a tradition dating back to 1892. Both of Sophie's daily mail runs take her to five islands where her staff delivers mail to the island residents and summer camps. In addition to being a full-service post office where residents may purchase postal supplies and stamps, Sophie also offers ice cream novelty treats and snacks for sale. A daily ice cream bar or Popsicle has become quite a summer tradition for her island friends.

The M/V Doris E has been re-powered with modern new engines. This is another step made by the Winnipesaukee Flagship Corporation in preserving the air and water of Lake Winnipesaukee for generations to come. Help us continue our greening process efforts by cruising with us in 2012 season.

The M/S Mount Washington’s official season runs from late May to late October. Daily cruises depart from Weirs Beach and service the ports of Meredith, Wolfeboro, Center Harbor and Alton Bay. With a capacity of 1,250 passengers, the Mount Washington serves as the largest restaurant in the state and a popular gathering point for school proms, college reunions, large corporate celebrations and weddings.

The 140-year history of the popular cruise ship began with the Mount Washington I, which plied the water of the big lake until 1939.  Today’s vessel, the motor-ship Mount Washington, started her career on Vermont’s Lake Champlain under the name “Chateauguay.” Purchased by the Winnipesaukee Steamship Company in 1940, she was transported in twenty sections via rail, reassembled, re-outfitted, and christened the Mount Washington II. Last year she was overhauled to get new engines, and public rooms were upgraded. Today, in addition to operating the ‘Mount,' the Winnipesaukee Flagship Corporation also owns and operates the 74’ U.S. Mail Boat Sophie C., and 68’ Doris E.  Both vessels offer scenic lake cruises in July and August from Weirs Beach.

Once a summer attraction, the Mount Washington now operates May through October, offering daytime scenic, evening dinner and dance, and special themed cruises. To contact the ticket office, please call 603-366-5531.  To learn more about Mount Washington Cruises please call toll-free (888) 843-6686 or visit their Web site for discounted advance cruise tickets and information at www.cruisenh.com
