Engage the history and beauty that has always set apart the Great Lakes as a summer retreat destination. This freshwater ecosystem has become home to unique wildlife and created fantastic geographic wonders. Cruise for 11- or 12-days from Toronto to Chicago (or reverse). Take the time to stand in awe at Niagara Falls. Get excited watching the horse-drawn buggies on Mackinac Island (no cars allowed). Leave the Great Lakes to cruise around Georgian Bay – the unofficial sixth Great Lake. Walk aboard the historic SS Keewatin, a turn-of-the-century steamship built to transport passengers through the Great Lakes. Participate in local Ojibwe traditional life with an dance and drum presentation. The Great Lakes & Georgian Bay Cruise is a fantastic summer holiday.
Onboard the Pearl Mist, you’ll enjoy spacious accommodations. Staterooms range in size from 300 to 580 square feet! Watch the Canadian or US coastline go by from your private balcony, with table and chairs for you to relax or enjoy a meal with a view.
