April 3, 2018.
SPRING has SPRUNG! Our seasonal crew members will be reporting to the Kawartha Voyageur on April 30 for two weeks of training. Our first cruise boarding on May 13 will be from Rosedale (Balsam Lake) to Kingston.
The US/CDN exchange rate continues to be very favourable for our friends from the United States. With the $US exchange rate on April 3, 2018, the current cost of our 2018 cruises including tax is $US 1,730. (subject to change according to the exchange rate when your final balance is paid).
During the last two weeks of March, in 17 locales across Ontario, we presented a photo show of our cruise routes on the Trent-Severn Waterway and the Rideau Canal. We are pleased to announce that Lyle and Norma Pfohl were the winners of the draw for a FREE cruise.
You may view our 2018 and 2019 cruise schedule by clicking Cruise Dates on the menu at the top of this page. For specific information and rates on our Rideau, Quinte or Kawartha cruises, please click CRUISES on the menu above then select one of the three cruise routes. All cruises in any given year are the same price. There is a 2% discount for any confirmed 2019 bookings received prior to November 30, 2018. Many of our bookings come in prior to December since our passengers often book for the following year while they are still on board.
While we are essentially fully booked now for 2018, there is still good potential for anyone who places their name on our waiting lists. Once a particular cruise is fully booked, a wait list is set up for that cruise date. We do get 2 or 3 cancellations per cruise and there is no obligation to place your name on the wait list for as many cruise dates as you like. If your name comes up on a given cruise date, we will give you a call. If the date doesn't suit when we call, we simply call the next person on the wait list for that particular cruise.
We are looking forward to our 37th season cruising the historic waterways of Ontario. The Trent-Severn Waterway and the World Heritage Rideau Canal have been operating since 1833. The Trent-Severn Waterway was not fully open to thru navigation until 1920. Both waterways are part of Canada's National Parks and are open from mid-May to mid-October.
Whether it be your first or a return, we look forward to welcoming you aboard the Kawartha Voyageur for a refreshing and memorable voyage.
