A family-owned company based out of Seattle, Cruise West was founded in 1973 by Richard G. West, an industry veteran who envisioned a cruising style that would be -up-close, casual, and personal. Over time, he acquired a fleet of small ships that had the capability to navigate narrow channels, bringing the cruise passenger closer to the action than ever before possible. Redefining traditional concepts of cruising, West elected to appoint his ships simply and elegantly, eschewing mega liner accoutrements such as Vegas-style casinos, giant shopping boutiques, and elaborate Broadway-style performance theaters. Cruise West was designed with the world traveler in mind; the individual who embraces the experience, the journey, and the wonder of rediscovering one's natural surroundings.
