Victory Cruise Lines, a Florida-based cruise company, started in 2016 and they specialize in Great Lakes cruises.
Their new ship, the M/V Victory II, is a 200-passenger luxury cruise ship and it will be departing the Port of Detroit over 30 times in 2019 for a variety of Great Lakes adventures.
The M/V Victory II is 300-feet long, travels at 12 knots, is helmed by Captain Theodorou and has a crew of 84 catering to a maximum of 200-passengers, which is an excellent crew-to-passenger ratio.
The 5 Great Lakes comprise the world’s largest freshwater system and cruising them is beautiful.
Typically, the cruises are 9-days long and range in cost from $5,400-$10,000.
Cruise ship anchors can weigh more than 30,000 pounds! Fifty-seven links, each weighing 350-pounds, make up just one 90-foot shot of chain. Six shots of chain collectively hold a 30,000-pound anchor.
The cruise industry is the fastest growing sector of the leisure travel market.
The Caribbean/Bahamas is the world’s most popular cruise destination – accounting for more than a third of all cruises. There are more than 2,000 ports in the world which can be visited by cruise ships. The Port of Miami is the world’s busiest homeport. However, Nassau in the Bahamas is the busiest overall port. Nearly half of the top 30 biggest cruise ships in the world are owned by Royal Caribbean.
Try something fun and different. Try Detroit.
