Nestled along the picturesque St. Lawrence River, the Canadian-based small ship operator, St. Lawrence Cruise Lines, is gearing up for an exciting 2024 cruise season. The ever-growing demand for river cruising has inspired the creation of a New Discovery Cruise Series, offering travelers a unique opportunity to explore the rich history and beauty of the St. Lawrence River and the renowned 1000 Islands region.
A Focus on Education and Exploration:
President Jason Clark expresses the company’s commitment to meeting the increasing curiosity of travelers, stating, “We are seeing such a strong appetite from travelers to learn about the St. Lawrence River and the 1000 Islands that we wanted to create a new itinerary that could focus on local history, onboard presentations, and a stronger educational component for our passengers.”
The New Discovery Cruise Series:
Debuting in 2024, St. Lawrence Cruise Lines introduces two captivating journeys as part of their Discovery Cruise Series: “Discover the River” from May 12-16 and the “1000 Islands Fall Cruise” from October 15-19. Both 4-night, 5-day return cruises will depart from the line’s home port in Kingston, Ontario, and promise an immersive experience, delving into the rich history of the St. Lawrence Seaway and the the charming small ports along the St. Lawrence River in Eastern Ontario. The emphasis on the history of the region will be augmented by two featured speakers during these cruises. Maggie Wheeler is a renowned mystery writer known as “The Seaway Valley’s Queen of Crime” and Viktor Kaczkowski is a historian and filmmaker who will host a viewing of his documentary series about the St. Lawrence Seaway.
The Classic Riverboat Experience:
St. Lawrence Cruise Lines operates a single vessel, the timeless riverboat CANADIAN EMPRESS. With 32 staterooms featuring twin fixed beds, private bathrooms, and easy access to fresh air with a river view, the cruise line ensures a comfortable and intimate experience for passengers.
