ESCANABA, Mich. (WLUC) - A major cruise ship line announced a new port in the Upper Peninsula, making it the first time ever a lakes and oceans vessel will stop in Escanaba.
Starting in May, American Queen Voyages will visit this spot on a selection of voyages around the Great Lakes.
In a press release, the cruise line says that Escanaba can offer “personal connection in nature to unique small town artistry... and both solitude and excitement in any level of adventure [guests] desire”.
American Queen Voyages has partnered with the community’s members to offer unique and encompassing shore excursions including a hop-on hop-off tour with visits into the town’s shopping district to visit Sayklly’s Confectionery & Gifts, the William Bonifas Fine Arts Center, U.P.
