The trip will begin at a Great Lakes port. The exact departure port to be determined at a later date.

Because of customer demand, trips often do not end in the same port as they begin. We will try to keep this to a minimum but cannot guarantee the loading port or unloading port will remain definite. Should this occur, the company may be able to assist with return travel arrangements but cannot compensate passengers for additional travel expenses.
