Dear Traveler


Charlie O'Neill, President

When the last glaciers melted more than ten thousand years ago, they left behind a fabulous legacy: the Great Lakes. Over the centuries, these huge inland seas—which contain more than one-fifth of the world’s standing fresh water—have fascinated humankind. Voyageurs and homesteaders, poets and storytellers, missionaries and mapmakers, Native Americans and pioneers have all been drawn to the timeless beauty of the region.


From the magnificent spectacle of Niagara Falls, to Mackinac Island’s Victorian charm. From rolling dunes and grand vistas, to miles of white sand beaches. From emerald green forests, to blazing sunsets that turn the watery horizon to flame, the journey awaits.


On behalf of our company, I invite you to experience a magnificent Great Lakes cruise. As the only travel company in the world to specialize in Great Lakes cruises, we offer unforgettable adventures on these legendary waters. 

As we enter our 25th cruise season in 2023, we are representing more ships than ever, sailing a variety of exciting itineraries. Each distinctive cruise ship offers a relaxing and friendly atmosphere, delightful accommodations and impeccable service. Carefully selected enrichment lecturers and expert tour guides will add to your enjoyment, as you explore fascinating ports and absorb the breathtaking scenery.
