The Mothers' Day Brunch on the M/S Mount Washington has become tradition for many families, and tickets seem to sell out faster every year.
Each year around this time, there is a rush of customers hoping to purchase tickets. And unfortunately, we have to break the news that the cruise is already sold out. We do have a waiting list and we encourage you to join it, but we just can't guarantee availability.
So for customers who want to give the gift of a cruise, we have another option: Let Mom choose her cruise.
Mothers' Day Brunch is a wonderful event, but we also have a season full of amazing experiences she's sure to enjoy. So this year, spend some quality time with her on Mothers' Day, and give the gift of a Mount Washington Cruises Gift Card. Then, just make another date for whatever cruise she'd like. We're sure she'd love to spend more time with you!
Here are some ideas:
The Traditional Mom
If she's got her heart set on brunch and a leisurely tour of Lake Winnipesaukee, we offer our Champagne Brunch on Sundays from May 20 through October 21. The ship departs Weirs Beach at 10:00 AM and 12:30 PM, and Alton Bay at 11:15 AM.
The Dancing Mom
If your mom gets a little pep in her step as soon as she hears music, a Dinner Dance Cruise might be just the ticket. All Dinner Dance Cruises include a buffet dinner and live music. Select nights are planned around a theme or genre, such as Lobsterfest, Beach Boys, Elvis, or 80's Wave.
The Adventurous Mom
More than a century ago, ships were a primary method of transportation from one side of the lake to the other. Today, savvy passengers still board the M/S Mount Washington at Weirs Beach on select days to get off in Wolfeboro to explore. Board at 10:00 AM, and you'll arrive in Wolfeboro at 11:15 AM. The ship will return at 1:45 PM for your return. In the meantime, you'll have time to explore the gift shops, galleries and museums of the "Oldest Summer Resort in America".
The Family Party Mom
If your mom just can't imagine taking time for herself, why not let her bring the whole family? Family Party Nights are available on Wednesday evenings in July and August, and children 12 and under cruise free (limits apply). The cruise includes a buffet dinner, an entertainer on the Main Deck for the kids, and an entertainer in the Flagship Lounge for the adults.
If your Mom knows so much about the M/S Mount Washington that she's practically part of the crew, maybe she's looking for an all new perspective. Our smaller vessels offer a unique glimpse of lake life among the islands. The M/V Sophie C. and M/V Doris E. explore areas of Winnipesaukee that are inaccessible to the M/S Mount Washington. Fun Tip: the Doris E. visits the islands at 11:30 AM, 1:30 PM, 3:30 PM, 5:30 PM, 6:30 PM, and 7:30 PM. All other departures visit Meredith.
If you're still looking for a special gift for this Mothers' Day, a Mount Washington Cruises Gift Card is sure to please. Order Gift Cards by Wednesday, May 9 for delivery before Mother's Day, or purchase in person every day at the Weirs Beach Ticket Office.
