American Queen Voyages is to offer overnight port stays in the Great Lakes for the first time in autumn 2022. 

The brand’s three new Great Lakes sailings onboard Ocean Navigator will include a 15-day voyage from Montreal, Canada, to Chicago, Illinois, departing on 5 September; a 15-day roundtrip from Chicago to Montreal departing on 18 September; and a 12-day roundtrip from Montreal on 1 October.  

Guests will be offered options to spend the evenings onshore during overnights in Mackinac Island, Montreal, Toronto, and Quebec City. 

“Our valued travel advisors and guests shared how much they enjoy overnights in port while cruising Europe, so we adjusted these autumn voyages to offer opportunities to explore similar storied ports after the sun goes down here in North America,” said Shawn Bierdz, chief operating officer of American Queen Voyages. “Sunset strolls along the cobblestone streets of Old Montreal and sipping a warm cider during a Mackinac Island carriage ride are among the moments our guests can now enjoy.”
