Hapag-Lloyd Cruises cancels Great Lakes voyage

   April 30, 2020 ,   Cruise Industry

A cruise ship call at Thunder Bay (Sault Ste Marie, Ontario Canada) and Manitoulin Island (Little Current, Ontario Canada) scheduled for early-June 2020 was canceled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The top-luxury company Hapag-Lloyd canceled the Great Lakes voyage of the 175-passenger ship Hanseatic Inspiration as part of a fleetwide cruising suspension. The Hamburg Germany-based company (part of TUI Cruises) announced it was bringing its fleet back in Germany with 4 of its 5 ships headed for homeport berthing. 

Hanseatic Inspiration was scheduled to arrive in Port Hamburg on May 2 after the last of its passengers were disembarked on March 21.

The ship's embarkation port was scheduled to be Toronto (Ontario Canada) with departure on June 3, followed by visits to the Ontario port cities Windsor, Tobermory, Parry Sound, Little Current (Manitoulin Island) and Thunder Bay. Then the ship was planned to transit to the USA, with the cruise ending in Chicago (Navy Pier, Illinois) on June 17.

2 more calls from Hapag Lloyd have been scheduled for Thunder Bay next year.
