ANNOUNCING:  DuCard Wine Cruise 2022:  Maine Coast and Canadian Harbors, this fall.

We will be sailing on the Pearl Mist, a small ship, recently renovated and providing comfortable elegance for just 100 passengers.  It’s a seven night cruise, starting on October 12, round trip from delightful Portland, Maine and sails north to the Bay of Fundy, one of the natural wonders of the world.  Ports include several interesting small towns and harbors, all at PEAK New England fall leaf season.  Highlights include whale watching, a stroll through the charming town of St. Andrews, a visit to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor and more.

The cruise includes all meals, a variety of enrichment programs on board, entertainment nightly, an on-shore excursion in every port …. and DuCard wine, including special ‘seminars’ and events just for our group.  We will also have our own private lobster bake, special logo’d cruise swag (OK, you’ve seen folks from prior cruises wearing it at the tasting room !), and more.  Our DuCard group will be limited to 24 passengers.

Cruise fee is $4395 per person in standard level cabins, and must be booked through our travel agent and not on-line.

Proof of vaccination is required for all passengers, cruise staff is 100% vaccinated, all passengers are Covid-tested before boarding, and masks are required in lounge areas on the ship and in indoor spaces on excursions.

We have had a blast hosting DuCard Wine Cruises over the past few years.

  • Alaska – Inside Passage
  • Mississippi River – New Orleans to Memphis
  • Cuba – Cultural Exploration (during that very short window when Cuba was open …)
  • Columbia and Snake Rivers

All cruises are on small, luxury ships (Oceania, American Cruise Lines, Viking, Pearl) and include meals, entertainment, enrichment and more. Cruises also include a variety of on-ship events with DuCard wines exclusively for our group – receptions, vertical tastings, ‘seminars’ and related. And DuCard wines are available to drink at meal times too.

In September 2021 we cruised the Columbia River Gorge and Snake River Canyon area, in Oregon, Washington and Idaho, with a dozen intrepid people, with tons of Lewis & Clark history, a Mount Saint Helens viewing, Hells Canyon jet boa excursion, and more. Did I say DuCard wine – a vertical tasting, a premiere new wine release, Rose on the sun deck, after dinner Port (yes, on the port side), and more.
