Christmas in Leavenworth & Spokane

5 Days, December 2nd - 6th

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.

A Coos Bay Christmas

5 Days, December 23rd - 27th

First offered as a holiday excursion in 2013, it has been often requested by our Christmas crowd ever since, so we are pleased to bring A Coos Bay Christmas back for a return engagement.

This is an all-coach trip. Travel north to Ashland/Medford the first day. There’s a lunch break in Redding and tonight you’ll partake in the annual Christmas Feast at the Winchester Inn. The six-course meal comes with carolers and costumed staff.

The next morning (Christmas Eve), before departing for the coast, make an early morning visit to Harry & David’s. As is our Christmas shopping tradition, we have negotiated a little gift card to get you started on your expedition. Travel to the coast, stopping in Bandon at Washed Ashore, a most unique place that makes art out of ocean trash. At Cranberry Sweets, your sponsored-shopping activities continue. Finish the day at The Mill Casino/Hotel in Coos Bay. Dinner tonight is a Crab Fest (other options available), as the Dungeness season will have just started.

Christmas Day brings our legendary White Elephant Gift Exchange, an ecological tour of the area and a visit to Shore Acres State Park. Not only is there an interesting story, there is a wonderful display of Christmas lights. A holiday feast is planned.

The trip home takes you down the Oregon Coast, with shopping stops at Misty Meadows Jams and the House of Myrtlewood. Spend the night in Eureka and head home through the redwoods.

Cruising the (NEW) Panama Canal

17 Days, February 3rd - 19th

Sail from Florida to California on one of Holland America’s best-known ships, the m/v Westerdam. Spend one night in Fort Lauderdale before boarding the ship. Sailing from east to west provides you the advantage of getting the long, cross-country flight out of the way first, leaving just a short hop home from San Diego at the end of the cruise.

The 15-night cruise stops at Holland America’s private island, Half Moon Cay, and Cartagena, Columbia before its full transit of the Panama Canal, called by some the Eighth Wonder of the World. Workers in Panama recently completed a nearly 10-year expansion project that doubled the canal’s maritime traffic. Additional port calls include Puerto Caldera/Puntarenas (Costa Rica), where you can experience a tropical rainforest, Corinto (Nicaragua), Puerto Quetzal (Guatamala), and Acapulco and Cabo San Lucas (Mexico).

We continue to partner with Holland America Line for this adventure because of its commitment to service and because we know and believe in the quality of its ships, programs and shore excursions. The m/v Westerdam is a midsize ship which carries passengers with style and grace – it’s large enough to offer a host of exciting amenities but more personal and intimate than the “floating cities” of other cruise lines.

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.
