9 Night Cruise sailing from Chicago to Toronto aboard Victory I. Hotel stay pre-cruise in Chicago.Day 1: Hotel Stay in ChicagoEnjoy a complimentary stay at the pre-cruise hotel. The evening allows time to become acquainted with the city. For your convenience, our Hospitality Desk will be located in the hotel, and our friendly staff can assist with everything from general questions about the upcoming voyage to reservation of premium experiences. Representatives will be available to provide suggestions for dining, entertainment and sightseeing options to maximize your time hereDay 2: Embark in ChicagoWelcome to Chicago! This uncommon ground is blooming with gourmet dogs, baseball crowds, supper clubs and, of course, the Bean. There are plenty of sights to be seen in this city of global commerce and culture. Chicago invites you to stroll through its canyons of glass and steel, embrace hustle and go anywhere the wind blowsDay 3: Scenic Sailing on Lake MichiganThese waters are home to a vast variety of wildlife - trout, salmon, walleye, smallmouth bass, crawfish, freshwater sponges and sea lamprey, to name a few. That buffet attracts raptors such as hawks and bald eagles and waterfowl such as duck, swans and geese. Relax and enjoy the view on your own time on this peaceful river cruising day. Sip a mid-morning consommé, breathe in the fresh lake air on the upper deck, share convivial conversation with other guests or just nibble on snacks as you look forward to yet another astounding sunset on the water.Day 4: Mackinac IslandVacationers 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. Clip-clop rhythms of horse hooves soothe the soul, with not a car in sight. The rich aroma of Mackinac's signature treat - its famous fudge - permeates charming shops. This peaceful port draws visitors back year after year. Tour the island by carriage and visit Fort Mackinac. Afterward, marvel at myriad magnificent selections on the Grand Hotel luncheon buffet for an included mid-day meal to treasure. And the view at the hotel from America's longest front porch stretches for miles.Day 5: Sault St. MarieSault St. Marie, MI and ON"The Saults" - international twin cities - are neighbors on either side of St. Marys River on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and in Southern Ontario. Soak in the culture of the area on a narrated tour showcasing local highlights such as the retired lake freighter SS Valley Camp - now a museum - and an insider's look at the engineering spectacle of the Soo Locks, the world's busiest canal in terms of tonnage.Day 6: Little Current, Manitoulin IslandBreathe the clean air and find solace in the sacred atmosphere of the world's largest freshwater island. Generations have nurtured a close and cherished relationship with the land, the forest, the waters and the sky in this treasured place, and you are invited to share its beauty and splendor. Reflect on island heritage on an included excursion to the Ojibwe Cultural Foundation for a welcome ceremony and interpretive tour, along with stops at other attractions of note. Those opting for a premium experience can saddle up to feel the gentle sway of an ambling horseback trail ride amid the breathtaking scenery of Honora Bay.Day 7: Scenic Sailing on Lake HuronToday we slip our moorings to survey the sapphire canvas of a boundless empire. Scenic sailing invites visitors to navigate the day as we cruise through the second-largest arena of inland sea in America's Great Lakes. Engage in laissez faire, and curl up with a nautical novel on the deck as the rhythmic slap of spray keeps pace. Grab some fresh fare, behold the natural wonders and indulge in the delicacy of sailing.Day 8: DetroitThere'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 Museum of American Innovation. Be astounded by its vast and varied artifacts of American heritage. The extraordinary exhibits chronicle the lifespan of a nation. All guests may choose an included excursion to the Detroit Institute of Arts and its 100-plus galleries, the Motown Museum, the West Canfield Historic District and other city highlights.Day 9: ClevelandStep off the M/V Victory I onto what some call America's "North Coast" and discover why Clevelanders are so fiercely proud of their home. The reinvented city reverberates with vitality and a cool new atmosphere. Expand your mind at the world-class Cleveland Museum of Art, with over 45,000 works to explore. You'll also feel the backbeat at the museum devoted to one of America's finest gift 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.Day 10: Port Colborne (Niagara Falls)Port Colborne's rich maritime history and stunning beachfront point up the beauty of the region. Make the most of this beautiful stop with an optional half-day pre- or post-cruise tour 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.Day 11: Disembark in TorontoAs the journey concludes, there are other opportunities for you to take in the town.
