LAWRENCE SEAWAY SYSTEM is a shared U.S.-Canadian waterway. The natural flow of lakes, rivers and channels are connected by manmade locks — spanning over 2,000 miles inland from the Gulf of St. Lawrence to Duluth, Minnesota on Lake Superior. This growing hub for luxury cruises includes the clear water of the St. Lawrence River and all five Great Lakes. Unique ports are rich with historic, maritime and Midwestern charm. Prime attractions are close to berthing space. Unique onshore experiences immerse passengers in local history, art and architecture, and native cultures. Port communities on the Great Lakes go out of their way to celebrate the ships and their passengers as they sail in throughout the spring, summer and fall. Your passenger won’t want to miss a single season. SHIP FACTS • About 1/3 of cruise vessels built today carry fewer than 400 passengers, providing a more intimate experience. • Ships in the St. Lawrence Seaway are small enough to navigate the locks and channels, but large enough for superior handling and stability in rough seas. • Maximum ship dimensions are length 225.50 m, beam 23.77 m and depth 8.08 m.
