Explore the verdant wilderness, rocky shores, and pristine islands of North America as you sail the Great Lakes aboard the 202-guest M/V Victory I. Embarking in the cultural hub of Chicago, you’ll leave the Windy City and cruise scenic Lake Michigan on your way to the idyllic Victorian atmosphere of Mackinac Island. Traverse the legendary Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie, the Midwest’s oldest city; sail the shimmering waters of Georgian Bay; and explore the native traditions of Manitoulin Island. Relive the glory days of the American automobile at the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit, and celebrate music history at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Cap off your cruise by experiencing the immensity and grandeur of Niagara Falls from the thrilling perspective of a Hornblower vessel before disembarking in Toronto, one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world.

Highlights:
Unwind in idyllic Mackinac Island, traverse the legendary Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie, explore the native traditions of Manitoulin Island, dive—or drive—into automotive history in Detroit, browse Cleveland’s famous and expansive West Side Market, and see Niagara Falls up close and personal from the thrilling perspective of a Hornblower vessel.
