Setting sail from Milwaukee (Chicago)

Chicago, the 'Windy City', is a spectacular open-air museum of modern architecture, scattered with striking skyscrapers and sculptures by the likes of Frank Gehry, Anish Kapoor and Frank Lloyd Wright. The city is known for its fantastic food, vibrant nightlife and sports-mad locals, plus cultural attractions including the Field Museum and the Adler Planetarium. Chicago's soaring skyline is best appreciated by boat from Lake Michigan, and this is a great place to begin or end a cruise around the Great Lakes.

Arriving in Toronto

Toronto is the fourth largest city in North America, a dynamic and culturally rich metropolis that hugs the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario. The city's cosmopolitan residents, drawn from over 200 nations, have gifted the city a wealth of ethnic cuisines, and the foodie scene is a major attraction. A busy calendar of events includes the famous Toronto International Film Festival in September, and the city boasts some excellent museums and galleries. Toronto is also just two hours from Niagara Falls, and serves as a jumping off point for cruises around the Great Lakes.
