Cruising the Great Lakes

Sept. 24-Oct. 1, 2022

Travel provider: Gohagan & Company

Trace nearly two centuries of North American innovation, admire magnificent coastal scenery and visit islands and towns rich in maritime history during this seven-night, exclusively chartered cruise featuring all five Great Lakes. 

Cruise from Toronto, Ontario, to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, aboard the Five-Star small ship Le Dumont-d’Urville, featuring only 92 Suites and Staterooms, each with a private balcony. Feel the awe-inspiring force of Niagara Falls during a full-day excursion, including an unforgettable cruise toward the base of powerful Horseshoe Falls. 

Experience the historical charm of Mackinac Island and the biodiversity of Ontario’s UNESCO-inscribed Niagara Escarpment, including a visit to quaint Tobermory. Transit the Soo Locks and Welland Canal—Victorian-era engineering marvels—and visit the Museum Ship SS Valley Camp in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan’s oldest city. 

Enjoy guided tours of the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House and the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation. Extend your journey with the Toronto Pre-Program and Milwaukee Post-Program Options.
