Great Lakes Cruise Lines
Several cruise lines serve the Great Lakes region. Due to the size of the locks, large ocean-going vessels aren't able to enter the Great Lakes. This creates an opportunity to cruise on intimate vessels with a typical capacity of 200 guests or less. The growing list of companies sailing the Great Lakes includes new entrants, like Ponant Cruises and Viking Expeditions (2022), along with incumbents, Victory Cruise Lines, Pearl Seas Cruises and Blount Small Ship Adventures.
