Cruise the Great Lakes


Rich history, diverse cultures and spectacular vistas.
These are the Great Lakes ports of call.




Friendly, exciting, diverse and enchanting, Toronto is the number one tourism destination in Canada and an ideal port of call for cruise ships.

A city of fine dining, museums, culture, history, sports and shopping, Toronto also hosts a surprising number of green zones. Guests have an excellent opportunity to indulge in a lavish variety of entertainment and recreation just moments from the dockside.

The 7,000 restaurants in Toronto cater to every flavour palette imaginable. The downtown club scene offers musical styles ranging from intimate top-shelf jazz to pulsating techno dance beats.

Catch a bird’s eye view of the city atop the CN Tower, or walk the underwater tunnel at Ripley’s Aquarium. The Royal Ontario Museum houses international and Canadian works, while the Ontario Science Centre offers intriguing interactive exhibits. History thrives at the spectacular Casa Loma and Historic Fort York.

Toronto’s Theatre District is home to more than 25 professional stages. Guests can enjoy a hit Broadway-style show or experience the Canadian Opera Company, the National Ballet of Canada and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Throughout the year, the city plays host to world-class festivals and special events.

Toronto’s Distillery District is a National Historic Site and represents the largest collection of Victorian industrial architecture in North America. The cobbled streets now host artist's studios, galleries, unique retail stores, restaurants and a micro-brewery.

Top-rated sports facilities are home to Toronto’s major league teams: Blue Jays baseball, Raptors basketball, Argonauts football, Rock lacrosse, T.F.C. soccer and Maple Leaf hockey.

From the boutiques at Queen's Quay and the craft and antique markets of St. Lawrence Market to the soaring spaces of the Eaton Centre and the up-market stores of Yorkville and Hazelton Lanes… guests have unlimited shopping options.
