SS Lane Victory - 'Back to 1945' cruises start July 18, 2009

TheSS LANE VICTORY will be ready to sail on July 18th for the first of her five summer cruises "back to 1945". LANE VICTORY is the only Victory Ship licensed for deep sea voyaging and is currently being readied to head back out to sea by her all-volunteer crew. Lifeboat gear has been renewed and the ship was given excellent marks during a US Coast Guard inspection. Fresh from her recent dry dock in San Diego, the ship is licensed to carry 800 people on daylight excursion cruises into the Santa Catalina Channel from San Pedro, CA, where she is permanently moored.

While underway, passengers have the opportunity to tour the engine room, visit the wheelhouse, attend a memorial service for those lost on US merchant vessels in the Second World War and browse through the vessel's two extensive museums. Weather permitting, the LANE VICTORY will be "attacked" by vintage World War II aircraft while her Armed Guard crew scramble to their battle stations to thwart the attackers with anti-aircraft pom-pom guns and a five-inch cannon. The ship will make additional cruises August 15, August 16, September 26 and September 27. See the SS LANE VICTORY website for full details and tickets at www.lanevictory.org/
