New Great Lakes Cruises

June 13, 2001
Delta Queen Coastal Voyages, an offshoot of Delta Queen’s river vessels, has announced it's offering Great Lakes itineraries -- a cruise destination that’s fairly hard to come by -- next year. The company says the entire fleet will be deployed there next summer -- that’s two ships -- to sail three-to-seven day itineraries taking in ports such as Buffalo, Chicago, Duluth, MN., Milwaukee, and charming Mackinac Island, MI. The line officially launched this May, when the 224-passenger Cape May Light was inaugurated outside of Washington, DC -- an appropriate locale for America’s biggest home-grown cruise line. But Cape Cod Light, the second ship, currently under construction at a U.S. shipyard, has been delayed, indefinitely. Its launch, slated for August 4, has already postponed as have a total of 12 cruises and Delta Queen Coastal Voyages says it will firm up a new premiere date in the next month or so.
