“Journey to the North Pole” Cruises

Nov. 22-Jan. 1. It is all about the magic of Christmas, entertaining kids and the kids at heart. Passengers on the cruise are greeted by friendly elves, and quickly discover that the Grinch is planning to sabotage the voyage. To every child’s delight, the cruise boat gets past the Grinch and finds Santa and his elves at the North Pole, where Santa reads each child’s name from his “nice list.”

The 40-minute cruise departs nightly at 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 p.m., from the North Pole Cruise Terminal at The Coeur d’Alene Resort Plaza Shops. Reservations required by phone or at www.cdalakecruises.com. No cruises on Thanksgiving Day.
