Day 4 - Scenic Sailing on Lake Michigan

As we traverse through the aqua, turquoise and cerulean shades of Lake Michigan, watch dunes of sand slowly become lost in the horizon while sunlight plays upon the deck. You may choose to visit the fitness center for a workout, or pamper yourself with a soothing massage in the spa. Regardless of preference, embrace the relaxation that scenic sailing offers to all.

Day 5 - Mackinac Island

Vacationers adore this unique American destination. Its devotees long for the time they can return to their beloved island retreat and truly disconnect from the daily hustle and bustle.

The view from America’s longest front porch at the Grand Hotel stretches for miles. This peaceful port draws visitors back year after year.

Day 6 - Sault Ste. Marie

A city divided presents duality in experience; Sault Ste. Marie, MI, and ON, bridged together by name and commerce, are diverse waterfront communities that harbor a flood of opportunity. Culture beats through street veins that connect these harbors to the distinctly different North American countryside beyond each border. Join the included tour, and ascend to the apex of the Tower of History for an unmatched perspective on the region, or peer into the past in the preserved fur traders’ settlement homes on Water Street. Drink in the atmosphere, and encounter life in Sault Ste. Marie.

Day 7 - Little Current/Manitoulin Island

The raw beauty of Georgian Bay leads to the world’s largest freshwater island – Manitoulin – featuring picturesque granite outcrops and rolling farmland. In its largest town, Little Current, indigenous life and legend meld with European history, with Immaculate Conception Church and its distinctive tepee-like architecture as a symbol. Venerated rhythms of the ages come to life in the talented hands and feet of Native drummers and dancers on an island considered sacred by the native Anishinaabe people.

Day 8 - Scenic Sailing on Lake Huron

Today the M/V Victory II transforms into a self contained universe ripe for exploration.

This day on the lake is all yours.

Day 9 - Detroit

There’s no better place than the Motor City to choose an optional premium experience to explore the captivating history of the automotive industry – and so much more – at The Henry Ford.

For just the price of admission, you can also feel the backbeat at the museum devoted to one of America’s finest gifts to the world – the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. An optional premium experience to Geauga County offers a glimpse into a simpler way of life with a visit to an Amish home for a traditional wedding feast.

Make the most of this beautiful stop with an optional premium experience to Niagara Falls. See Earth’s raw power on full display during an unforgettable encounter with a natural wonder of the world. Thoughts swirl in the surreal roar of rushing water as it crashes into the jade-green lake below. Excitement escalates as we climb aboard our Hornblower catamaran to sail into the mesmerizing mist. Afterward, reflect on your experience over lunch, then explore local shops for the perfect souvenir to remind you of your journey.

Day 12 - Toronto

Ever-expanding Toronto is a gift to the senses. It’s become a canvas for the many artisans who’ve made it home and taken every opportunity to captivate uniqueness and beauty throughout its core.
