M/S Mount Washington prepares for 2016 season
By The Citizen

Let the boating season begin. With the successful completion of its annual inspection by the New Hampshire Departments of Safety, Marine and Fire Safety Divisions, the venerable M/S Mount Washington will return to its summer port of Weirs Beach early next week and is ready to kick off its 2016 cruising season.

“We’re looking forward to getting back out on the big lake and for a successful cruising season," says Captain Jim Morash, General Manager of Mount Washington Cruises.

The New Hampshire Department of Safety annually inspects the vessels before issuing the cruise line its license to operate.

“Safety is the number one priority with our vessels and our relationship with the Marine and Fire Safety Divisions is very important to us," says Captain Paul Smith. “We are in contact with them throughout the year and open to their suggestions in how to improve our operation in terms of safety. In addition, we’re always making improvements and updating older systems with the newer technology available.”

Upholding a longstanding tradition, Mother’s Day Brunch Cruise, Sunday May 8, will be the first cruise available to the public. The two and a half hour scenic cruises of Lake Winnipesaukee feature a champagne brunch and entertainment for all ages. There are two brunch cruises to choose from: 10 a.m. or 2 p.m.  Tickets are available for both.

The official 2016 daily cruising season for the M/S Mount Washington, and her sister vessels, run from May 21 until Oct. 18 offering daily cruises from its summer port of Weirs Beach while servicing the ports of Alton Bay, Center Harbor, Meredith and Wolfeboro.

Departure times and options vary through the season with July and August having the most cruises available. Options include daily scenic, evening dinner dance and island mail delivery cruises.
