An especially intimate experience of the Maine coastline is
available to clients who sign on for a three-, four- or six-night
sailing aboard the Victory Chimes, a historic three-masted schooner
based in Rockland.
Unlike other cruise experiences, the focus of this adventure is
sailing. The 40-passenger Victory Chimes sails for four to six
hours daily, traveling among some of the 3,000 islands that dot
The 170-foot Victory Chimes was first launched in 1900 and spent
her first 45 years hauling cargo on the East Coast. Now fully
restored, the vessel has operated passenger cruises since 1991.
Prices for Victory Chimes' cruises, which operate from June to
September, range from $400 to $750 per person, single or double
occupancy, depending on cruise length and time of year. Prices
include three meals daily. Home-cooked New England-style cuisine
featuring fresh local products is featured.
Victory Chimes pays 10% commission to agents. For more
information or reservations, call (800) 745-5651. n
