Small Ships with Big-Hearted Staff

We are not one of the new mega ships that carry thousands of passengers. On the contrary, while our technology is modern, we carry only 202 passengers on each cruise. Our limited capacity gives personnel onboard our ships the opportunity to provide nonstop, superior service from beginning to end. On every cruise, we strive to exceed our guests’ expectations.

Nearly 15,000 years ago, the last of the great glaciers retreated, leaving behind the five Great Lakes: Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario. Those vast bodies of water contain more than one-fifth of the planet’s fresh surface water, and together make up the largest body of freshwater in the world. On the M/V Victory I, a small ship exclusively designed for coastal cruising, you’ll delve into North America’s maritime history throughout the lakes, set sail on the storied Georgian Bay, admire the natural beauty of Niagara Falls and take in the breathtaking vistas of the southern Canadian coast.

Our remarkable itineraries include time to explore lovely towns where you can enjoy shopping, stroll along the docks and relax in waterfront parks. They include rare stops in quaint French-Canadian villages, Victorian-era towns rich with seafaring history and remote islands with spectacular wildlife viewing.
