Virginia V Steamship Cruise
The Virginia V is the last of the famed Puget Sound Mosquito Fleet. We traveled from the hotel to the dock by chartered luxury motorcoach. Our cruise aboard her was reminiscent of those fabled days of steamship passage.
The Virginia V can comfortably accommodate up to 150 passengers. A tasty catered lunch was served aboard as we sailed Lakes Union and Washington. We even saw Bill Gates' home.
The V's exposed 100+ year old engine was 'open for inspection' and the ship's interior has been fully restored, with glowing wooden decks and sparkling white paint. At 85 years old, the Virginia V seemed in great shape.
