We wanted to see more of the Great Lakes than we could by driving and this looked like the perfect opportunity. This cruise began in Toronto, with stops in Port Colborne, Point Pelee, Detroit, Alpena, Mackinac Island, ending in Milwaukee.

This was the largest passenger ship in the history of the Great Lakes and it received lots of attention from the media and those on shore.

Viking expedition ships are equipped with unique opportunities to learn and explore. Our first night began our passage through the Welland Canal. We spent an hour walking all over the decks in the middle of the night because we were fascinated by the process. In fact, we planned our room location for easy access to the bow deck just to watch.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Nordic Balcony

This is a well-planned living space. There was lots of storage, a heated bathroom floor, phone chargers in the bedside tables, a drying closet for gear, books, audio equipment and binoculars.
