In the waning days of summer, as the air becomes crisp and the skies turn deep blue, a special beauty envelops the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River. On this splendid voyage through Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, and the St. Lawrence River, set sail from Detroit and call at historic Cleveland. Here, visit the Great Lakes Science Center and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or the Museum of Art and Botanical Gardens. Next, pass through the seven locks of the Welland Canal into Lake Ontario and thrill to the thundering of Niagara Falls. As you traverse through the resplendent Thousand Islands, take part in lectures and discussions with onboard experts about the natural and cultural history of the places you visit. Finally, navigate the historic St. Lawrence River en route to Montreal and Quebec City.
* This voyage opterates in the reverse, from Quebec City to Detroit.
