Published:
SEATTLE -- A ferry shortage has forced the Transportation Department to cancel its annual holiday cruise for people with developmental disabilities.
The 90-minute cruise Saturday in Seattle would have carried nearly 1,000 people, including family members.
Current and former ferry employees and other volunteers, including the Coast Guard and Seafair Pirates, have been operating the cruise for decades.
KING reported the ferry that was supposed to be used for the cruise, the Tacoma, is needed on regular routes because of maintenance problems.
