Now you can cruise the Great Lakes just like you would the seven seas on these amazing ships.

There are two cruise lines that I have found that offer 7 to 11 day cruises traveling everywhere the great lakes reach with stops in Chicago, Holland, Toronto, Mackinac Island , Beaver Island (which is supposed to me in the legendary Lake Michigan Triangle) and Marquette. There are even cruises that travel all the locks and islands around the Great Lakes. Gotta love Pure Michigan.
