Great Lakes cruise ship docked in Michigan

This summer, cruise ships will be docking in Duluth. On Tuesday, one of the brand-new Viking cruiser docked in Detroit, as part of an inaugural Great Lakes tour.

The Viking Octantis is at the Nicholson Terminal. It’s an all-new expedition ship that was built to explore remote destinations.

Several Great Lakes cruises are being offered, the longest lasting 15 days from Toronto, Ontario to Duluth. That cruise hits all five of the Great Lakes.

The Octantis is 665 feet long and has five decks, with restaurants, a fitness center, spa, hair salon, and so much more. She can carry about 387 guests.

These cruisers are expected to dock in Duluth sometime this month, with the City’s new customs terminal set to be completed in 2023. At that point, Duluth will become an embarking city, meaning cruises will leave from here.
