The Victory II ship was recently renovated and they did an excellent job. The ship is fresh, clean, and very well appointed. Every staff member we have met is attentive and concerned for our satisfaction. Our cabin is more than adequate with one exception: the shower is extremely small. Meals are quite varied. On more than one occasion we have ordered doubles of items on the menu, or we have ordered multiple items from each category, with no questions asked from the staff. All of the tours has been enjoyable, informative, and worth the time. The cruise director has done a very good job of telling us what to expect for our next day of adventure. Going through the various locks along the way has been one of the most interesting parts of this trip. I would highly recommend this cruise. I have seen criticisms of where the ship docks and my only comment to that is: this is a ship and it has to be dock at a port, and the ports are not necessarily in the best part of town…. Why would you expect a ship port to be in a beautiful part of town? Read Less

Cruised several times on American Queen boats and loved each of those. Wanted to try their new acquisition, Victory Cruise Lines and their Great Lakes itinerary. As with the Queen and Duchess, we weren't disappointed. The ship is a small version of an ocean going cruise ship. 200 passengers, very intimate, easy to navigate. The ships decor is beautiful, very updated and did not experience a single problem or issue. The cabins are small, but very well designed with a lot of storage space. We found that by separating our beds, we had much more space and the cabin seemed larger. Beds very comfortable. Bathroom is very nice with ample storage, small shower, but we've had smaller. We call it a one person bathroom unless one of us was in the shower. Dining in the large dining room or the smaller casual Grill buffet. Never crowded and food was very good. Menu items displayed in the hallway entering the dining room for dinner. Nice to be able to see what you might want to order. Also 24 hr. coffee machine in the main lounge and coffee and ice cream machines in the Grill. Public areas are: the 1) main lounge where we met before dinner for cocktails, talks on next day's activities, daily activities, nightly entertainment and afternoon teas: 2) tavern with a pub type atmosphere behind the lounge with a bar and tables: 3) two separate seating areas on the top deck (note: the elevator does not go to the top deck. The itinerary and excursions were awesome. We were on all 5 Great Lakes with beautiful scenery and wonderful ports of call. The excursions were well planned, seamless in execution and all guides were interesting. Nightly entertainment was a three piece band made up of a piano player (also the cruise director), drummer and a guitar/trumpet player. They were very talented and played popular songs that we know and could sing along or dance to. Different theme each night. The staff aboard Victory I were excellent, hard working and their service was impeccable. This was right up with the best service we've ever experienced. If you're looking for a relaxing cruise on a great small ship with wonderful food, service and excursions, in or close to America, this would be a great choice. Read Less

Embarkation: We arrived in the port of Detroit a little early and were pleasantly surprised that we were able to board despite being early. Once on board we were greeted by staff and were immediately given our room keys. We were not able to get into our rooms yet so we went into the lounge where the staff made us feel like we were at home. We were given drinks and shortly thereafter there was small finger sandwiches provided. The ship itself is beautiful. Very well decorated. The lounge is the main room with a small bar to sit and relax at. Rooms: Overall the rooms are very nice, small but enough. There was a mini fridge with complimentary soda and there was water also. The beds were pushed together to make a queen bed that was very comfortable. Storage was a bit minimal but that was easy to live with. The bathroom was a good size, bigger than some we have been in on ships. Our room attendant was better than we could have imagined. Excursions: This was our favorite part of the whole cruise. The boarding process seemed to go pretty seamless. All we had to do was pick our color ticket which designated our departure time and then we were called off the ship when the bus was ready for us. The shore excursion specialist was always available when we had questions and was very easily locatable. Every night there was a port review which told us all the next days excursions. This was very helpful and made us aware exactly what to expect and what time we should be ready the next morning. I have to say our favorite port was Quebec City. As this was our first time in Canada I had no idea Old Town was gorgeous. Our tour guides were very knowledgeable. Not just in Quebec City but in every other port as well. Another port that stuck out for me was Cleveland. When we docked we were skeptical but once we did the trolley tour we fell in love with the city and the guides were THE BEST! Food: The food on board was to die for. Every night there was a display of what we could choose from which was really helpful to see all the dishes beforehand. The food always came out in a timely manner and the waiters / waitresses were the best! 10 out of 10 for the wait staff! Read Less

I was lucky enough to be part of the Victory II inaugural voyage from Montreal to Detroit and I loved the experience. I love food and I couldn't be happier with the delicious cuisine and service. Their two restaurants, the Victory Dining Room and the Lighthouse Grille are beautiful and they offer options to please everybody. The staff is amazing and I’m already missing them (Amelita and Lourdes)! I had the chance to discover Montreal, Quebec City, Niagara Falls, Toronto, the warm hospitality in Kingston and be surprised by Cleveland and Detroit. I loved the Cleveland Museum of Art, it was a great find during my stop in the city. The views were breathtaking and the atmosphere is relaxing. Nothing like sitting with your drink or coffee while admiring the world. Every sunset and sunrise was unforgettable. It was a lovely time and I’ll be back for sure! Thanks !! Read Less
