I had never cruised before as always thought it would be done in later years when we were less active but this was great. Trips out on zodiacs, special ops boats, submarines, canoes and the tender made for a great adventure in the Great Lakes. We stopped at some interesting destinations for hiking, cycling, wide life watching or horse drawn carriage tours. On board cabin facilities were top notch and lounge areas plentiful for the number of guest on board. The world cafe food was excellent. Might be buffet but in several areas it was cooked to order at breakfast and at dinner. Two other restaurant where reservations were required at no extra cost, a spa with pool, small shop and plenty of comfortable space areas for quiet relaxation or chatting with other guests. To make use of all the “toys” on board you need to have a fair amount of mobility, so bear this in mind. A great way to see Lakes Michigan, Huron and Superior and scenery of the Canadian Shield. A superb trip and it has wet our appetite for more - the Antarctic perhaps.

Deluxe Nordic Balcony

Great use of space and decent size bathroom with good shower cubicle and toiletries.
