Great Active Adventure by mmetzner

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Octantis

The scenery was outstanding both from on board and excursions. The Expedition Scientists were readily available and knowledgeable. We attended all daily briefings and lectures which added depth and content to the overall experience. Viking hospitality was in full effect. Our cabin was well tended and spacious. We sampled all dining venues and were pleased with all.

Amazing, but not your usual cruise! by PG111

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Viking Octantis

This is a true expedition ship, definitely not your usual cruise! Multiple PhD's on board giving lectures on geology, oceanography, etc., and gathering data for NOAA and universities. The ship itself is magnificent, and has very unique facilities -- Zodiac boats, high-speed boats, and two mini-subs!! Visiting small settlements on Great Lakes islands and taking hikes, boat trips, etc., while the scientific teams do their research and give scientific lectures.

Check the ship’s departure time. Our itineraries showed 10pm from Toronto when they actually left at 8 causing 12:people to miss the whole first day of sailing which was the most interesting.

Lake Superior can often be too rough for kayaking, submarine, and zodiac activities. Sign up for these activities with that in mind as they could be cancelled.
