Cruising the Great Lakes 14 day adventure

Visiting Sault Ste Marie, Thunder Bay and Duluth Chicago, Toronto

DULUTH MINNESOTA.  January 4, 2020  (LSN) On June 3, the Hanseatic Inspiration - owned by a German cruise ship company, will set sail in Toronto, Canada and make it's way to Chicago. Stopping along the Great Lakes  including Sault Ste Marie, Thunder Bay and Duluth with 376 passengers  240 crew 

HANSEATIC inspiration
The HANSEATIC inspiration was launched in October 2019.  Like an eighth ocean in the forests of North America, the hard-to-access Great Lakes are a natural paradise that the HANSEATIC inspiration will visit in style. The wind in your hair and the spray on your skin – become an explorer under an open sky. This is why our ships have more open deck space than any other expedition ship. Hear the ice crack as you stand on the bow. Or discover the dense mangrove forests of the Amazon from various perspectives as they pass by at arm’s length. 

"Great Lakes cruising has really become much more organized in the last 5-years and now we're seeing those results," said Anna Tanski, President and CEO of Visit Duluth told KBJR^ 

The cruise line has scheduled two visits to Duluth this year. The second on June 17, from Chigaco back to Toronto.
