Christmas in Leavenworth & Spokane

5 Days, December 2nd - 6th Sold Out / Waitlist

Many of you have traveled with us to the Bavarian-style village of Leavenworth, in the Cascade Mountains east of Seattle, in the summer months. Some have stayed in the elegant Davenport Hotel in Spokane. Now, we offer you the opportunity to return and see the town and the hotel in all its Christmas grandeur. Fly to Spokane via Seattle, arriving in time for a late lunch at a beautiful spot, overlooking the waters of Lake Coeur d’Alene.

The Davenport Hotel is your home for two nights. Recently added to the Marriott Autograph Collection of Classic Hotels, the Davenport is one of the most historic and to this day, finest accommodations in the Pacific Northwest. The Davenport hosts a magnificent display of Christmas Tree Elegance, something that is sure to put you in the Christmas spirit. We’ve also included a guided historical tour of the property; so many wonderful nooks and crannies, all over the hotel. You’ll enjoy beautiful accommodations, with a treat on your pillow at night. Sunday Brunch at the Davenport is a special occasion and it is part of our itinerary. During our full day in the Spokane area, we’ll visit a Christmas festival and nearby Green Bluff (similar to our Apple Hill) for some seasonal treats. Also on the agenda: A horse and carriage ride through downtown Spokane. Those registering early have an option to include a performance of The Nutcracker (additional charge of $56).

Travel by coach to Leavenworth on Day 3. It’s a 4-hour ride, with a stop for lunch at Moses Lake, arriving at the Bavarian Village in mid-afternoon. Stay two nights at the Bavarian Inn and take in the sights, lights and sounds of Christmas. At night, the entire town turns into a holiday wonderland, with over a half million lights. During the day, we’ll take you to a very special candy store where Applets and Cotlets are made, and give you the chance to learn more about Leavenworth, and of course, time to explore the shops.

It’s All About The Water

6 Days, February 4th - 9th Sold Out / Waitlist

A title like this one sorta narrows down the options for where you might be going. For the more inquisitive in the audience, the water will not be frozen, so eliminate that thought right away. It’s All About the Water could mean a lot of things. You could be on the water, or looking at the water, or playing in the water… it’s a mystery! Look, don’t get all crabby on us. As my good friend Sandy used to say, “Life is a beach.” I know some of this sounds a bit fishy, but really, if you think about it, it could be fun. I mean, when have you ever had not one but TWO oceans, right outside your door (major clue alert). Only two hotels are involved, a 3 night and a 2-night stay, so you have time to enjoy your surroundings. Don’t worry, we won’t have to invent cool things to do, because we have found a ton of neat stuff.

Passage to South America

17 Days, March 2nd - 18th

Discover lands rich in history, folklore and wild beauty! South America has always held a special allure for explorers. Some came for gold, some for glory, and many more for adventure, but no one has ever truly succeeded in taming this vast and varied continent. On a Holland America Line South America cruise, you can experience these legendary lands in elegant comfort.

Begin in Argentina with two days to explore Buenos Aries while staying aboard ship. Then visit Uruguay, the Falkland Islands, Cape Horn, Glacier Alley and finally Chile. We are happy to arrange shore excursions for all ports of call. For a full listing of shore excursions available please visit www.hollandamerica.com.

Designed to carry less than 1,500 guests while providing more space for maximum comfort, the ms Zaandam is a prize in the mid-size ship category. On the musically themed Zaandam, you’ll find a Baroque-style Dutch pipe organ in her soaring three-story atrium, inspired by the traditional barrel organs still found on the streets of The Netherlands. While on-board, choose from an array of onboard activities that allow you to pursue new interests or relax and rejuvenate. Enjoy onboard cooking shows and hands-on workshops in partnership with America’s Test Kitchen. The Greenhouse Spa & Salon offers spa treatments, a thermal pool and lounge and salon services. The fully equipped Fitness Center offers classes in Yoga, Pilates, indoor cycling and more. On deck enjoy two outdoor pools, along with practice tennis courts.
