Great Lakes Cruises

Comprising one-fifth of the world's fresh surface water, the Great Lakes are the largest group of freshwater lakes on Earth and one of North America's most important waterways. Great Lakes cruises might begin in cosmopolitan cities like Chicago or Toronto and explore dynamic American and Canadian ports that shaped the region. You can learn about nautical history in Sturgeon Bay, the largest shipbuilding port on the Great Lakes, or discover cultural treasures like Victorian Mackinac Island, where the only form of transportation allowed is horse-drawn carriages, and Sault Ste. Marie, a scenically diverse port with a history influenced by French fur traders and Native Americans. Other excursions include a Miller Brewery Tour in Milwaukee, a tour of Ohio's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and recreational water sports such as kayaking, scuba diving and fishing.

  • The Great Lakes cruise season runs from May through October.

  • Great Lakes cruises typically range from 7 to 15 nights in length.
