Around the Inner Harbor

April 18, 1992

Because of incorrect information provided to The Sun, an item in Saturday's Maryland section erroneously reported that free parking is available near the mooring of the new Spirit of Baltimore cruise ship. The Harborview lot at 801 Key Highway charges $3 a day.

The Sun regrets the error.

Cruise the Patapsco: The Inner Harbor's fleet of cruise ships grows this weekend with the addition of the 550-passenger Spirit of Baltimore. The ship's operators expect an annual passenger total of 125,000 for a variety of daytime and after-dark cruises and charters -- most of them featuring food, drinks and entertainment or dancing in the moonlight.

Ticket prices range from $17 for Friday and Saturday moonlighdance cruises to about $35 for a three-hour dinner trip, with free parking available at the Harborview lot at 801 Key Highway where the three-deck Spirit is based.


Spirit Cruises, based in Norfolk and now operating cruise ships in nine cities, will be competing locally with the vessels operated by Harbor Cruises: the 500-passenger Bay Lady and the 400-passenger Lady Baltimore.

Information on Harbor Cruises schedules may be obtained by calling 727-5512. For Spirit information, call 523-7447.

Enjoy some chaos: If life seems chaotic sometimes, that's because it is, and scientists can prove it. Today, the Maryland Science Center is opening a new exhibit introducing the science of chaos. Why does a tire vibrate unpredictably when it hits a pothole at 55 mph? Why do some structures fall during an earthquake and some remain standing? The exhibit will use computer games and other hands-on activities to help visitors answer such questions. The exhibit will be at the center through June 14. Saturday and Sunday hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Monday through Friday, 10 to 5 p.m. Call 685-2370 for more information.

Easter sunrise service: The fourth annual Easter sunrise service sponsored by the Harbor Hospital Center, on the banks of the Patapsco River at the south end of the Hanover Street Bridge, will be held at 7 a.m. tomorrow. Several area churches have been invited to participate, and the service is open to the public.
