Cruise Ships to Start Sailing Through this Summer
DULUTH, Minn.– While shipping boats and barges are no stranger to the shore and harbor here in Duluth it will be welcoming in cruise ships as soon as this summer.
Vikings expeditions first travel ship the Viking Oceantis has hit the water. The ship will carry over 370 passengers into Canal Park in May of 2022. Other cruise ships are coming into Duluth next summer for the first time since 2013. Those at Visit Duluth say the ships will bring more tourists to the area.
“As the cruising initiative continues to ramp up, with Viking’s arrival on the great lakes in 2022, we are already experiencing tremendous interest from other cruise lines as well,” said Visit Duluth President Anna Tanski.
Along with Duluth, Viking Oceantis will be making seven other stops along Lake Superior from Thunder Bay, Canada all the way down to Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
