We are excited to announce that our beautiful small ship, M/V Victory II, will feature in the new series of ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’, with a cruise on the Great Lakes. The hugely successful Channel 5 show will air the episode on 29th November at 9pm, the first episode in series six.
The programme features the ten-day ‘Great Lakes and French Canada’ cruise; boarding in Detroit, Michigan, USA and cruising Lake Erie and Lake Ontario before cruising up the scenic St. Lawrence River to disembark in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Ports of call also included Cleveland, Ohio; Toronto, Ontario; historical Quebec City and Port Weller for Niagara Falls.
The visit to the Falls was an absolute highlight, with Jane taking a boat tour under the famous Horseshoe Falls, followed by a 670 metres zip wire excursion into the gorge towards the base of the Falls.
Jane McDonald cruised on the 202 passengers, elegant, ‘boutique’ small ship Victory II, one of two identical Victory Cruise Lines’ vessels, the other being the Victory I, which also cruises the Great Lakes. A range of itineraries cover all five Great Lakes – Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario and the Canadian Maritimes.
“It was a huge pleasure to host Jane McDonald and Channel 5’s ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’ film crew onboard Victory Cruise Lines’ Victory II small ship last July. Demand for US cruising, be it river, lake or ocean, is increasing from the UK and European cruise markets, especially from cruisers who have experienced European cruises and are looking for new destinations and adventures! “
