$19 for Journey to the North Pole Cruise for Two, Valid Sunday–Thursday (Up to $37.50 Value)
During each 40-minute festive Journey to the North Pole cruise, passengers admire the Holiday Light Show’s more than 1.5 million lights, which illuminate the night sky as the boat glides over the sparkling waters of Lake Coeur d'Alene to Santa’s workshop, where Santa greets each kid by his name. At the toy workshop, a living, animated Christmas tree with more than 30,000 sparkling LED lights soars to nearly twice the height of New York City's Rockefeller Center tree. The cruises run from November 23 through January 1, 2013. They depart from the Boardwalk Marina at 5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m., and 7:30 p.m., as well as additional times to accommodate demand. Children 12 and younger are admitted for free.
Lake Coeur d'Alene Cruises
Lake Coeur d'Alene Cruises commands a fleet of vessels that takes passengers over the blue waters of Lake Coeur d'Alene during day and evening festive themed cruises such as scenic St. Joe River cruise, Sunday brunch, and seasonal sunset dinner cruises. During warm summer days, scenic jaunts can take passengers on family-adventure based cruises, including the Pirates Of The Coeur d'Alene, which entertains guests with singing, dancing, swordplay and rogue pirates. During the winter season, cruise goers can enjoy educational cruises to Beauty Bay where they can see the annual return of the bald eagles out to region. As Christmas approaches, the ship decks fill with wide-eyed audiences who drink in spectacular holiday-light shows on their way to Santa's workshop and a towering illuminated Christmas tree. The winter also brings New Year's Eve cruises; a party cruise hosts live DJs, dancing, and ice-luge drinks, and a more relaxed dessert cruise features classic pop music—but both give passengers unparalleled views of fireworks and fill champagne glasses for toasts to another year without alien invasion.
