Ahoy! Cruise ship to visit Sinclair Inlet

American Constellation to arrive in Bremerton on Friday

PORT ORCHARD — The American Constellation, a five-deck, 267-foot cruise ship sailing under the American Cruise Lines banner, will make a visit to Sinclair Inlet and Bremerton this summer, beginning with its arrival at noon on Friday, May 17.

The ship and its more than 200 passengers from around the country will be stopping five times in Bremerton this year as part of its 11-day Grand Puget Sound cruise. The cruise starts in Seattle and includes a number of local stops, such as Port Townsend, Poulsbo, San Juan Island and Tacoma.

The Port of Bremerton has worked with the cruise line and area civic organizations to roll out the welcome mat for the new visitors, according to James Weaver, the port’s director of marine facilities.

American Constellation will depart Bremerton on Saturday, May 18, but will make a quick return visit at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 19. It will depart the next day.

Additional visits will take place on June 6, Sept. 21 and Oct. 9.
