Getting To Know Detroit

Detroit, looms large in the American imagination, both as a success story for the birth of the automotive industry and the struggles of the industrial heartland in the modern age. Downtown Detroit offers beautiful Art Deco architecture, and the Detroit Institute of Arts retains an extraordinary collection. It’s the founding city for the University of Michigan, and continues to be a draw for young people, artists, and entrepreneurs who cultivate its unique spirit.

Our All-Inclusive Visit

Sailing from Lake Erie to Lake Huron, the M/V Victory II will call on Windsor, Ontario, known as The City of Roses, or Detroit, Michigan, known as the “Motor City”, depending on port schedules, although regardless of the city in which the M/V Victory II docks, your shore excursions will be the same. Just outside Detroit, we’ll visit the Henry Ford Museum, created to document the genius of ordinary people. Housed in a sweeping, nine-acre, single-floor space with soaring 40-foot ceilings, the design and sheer scope of the museum is as grand as the vision that inspired it. Local expert docents will escort guests to see the museum’s highlights, including the limousine that carried President John F. Kennedy on that fateful day in Texas, the bus in which Rosa Parks stood her ground and sparked the Civil Rights movement, and the chair from the Ford Theatre in which Abraham Lincoln was sitting when he was shot.

More About Detroit…

Detroit is named for its location on the straits (French, d’etroit) of the Detroit River, which connects Lake Huron with Lake Erie. Because of its location, it has served as a strategic trading centre for both Native American and European settlers. The combination of raw materials like steel and accessibility as a Great Lakes port made it home to the nascent auto industry, leading Detroit to be christened America’s “Motor City”.
