Alexander+Roberts Announces Dates And Savings On Great Lake Cruises

by Jessica Montevago


Alexander+Roberts announced five dates for its Great Lakes cruises, with no supplements for single guests on select summer sailings.

Normally priced from $9,999, the sailings on May 31, June 18, June 27, July 6 and July 15—are being offered at a $4,000 savings on departures, plus a $300 pay-in-full discount. Travel agents earn a bonus of $50 per passenger on every pay-in-full booking.

The deluxe cruise sails between Chicago and Toronto, encompassing all five of the Great Lakes, aboard the fully refurbished, 202-guest mv Victory I. The all-inclusive prices cover outside staterooms, shore excursions, airport transfers, gratuities, 26 meals, an open bar and WiFi.

The 10-day journey first takes guests to Mackinac Island, where they’ll go on a horse-drawn carriage tour and visit historic Fort Mackinac, which played an important role in the War of 1812. They’ll travel through the Soo Locks to Sault Ste. Marie, built in 1855 to connect Lake Huron with Lake Superior, followed by visits to Little Current in Ontario, Ojibwe Cultural Foundation, the Henry Ford Museum and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The cruise then heads to the Great Niagara Gorge, traveling past Bridal Veil Falls into the very heart of Horseshoe Falls. Passengers will enjoy a tour, tasting and lunch at the Château des Charmes and free time to explore Niagara-on-the-Lake before re-boarding.

Alexander+Roberts also offers pre- and post-tours, from $659. Both two-day extensions in Toronto include sightseeing with a private guide, an overnight at the deluxe Le Germain Hotel Toronto, and chauffeured transfers from the airport and to the pier.
