Road Scholar Offers Learning Adventures Aboard Ship

See Niagara Falls as part of Road Scholar’s Great Lakes Tour.

Adventurers interested in learning about the storied waterways of the nation’s five Great Lakes now have the opportunity to learn aboard a small ship exclusively chartered by Road Scholar.

The not-for-profit educational travel organization offers this unique opportunity for adults 50-plus. Participants get the opportunity to discover the pristine natural beauty of the five Great Lakes—Michigan, Superior, Erie, Huron and Ontario—while learning from Road Scholar experts about the people who’ve sailed and worked these extraordinary waterways for centuries.

Participants will explore the Great Lakes aboard the 110-stateroom M/V Victory 1, a four-star, intimate, charming and fully stabilized ocean-going vessel. Its spacious indoor and expansive outdoor public areas make it an ideal vessel for exploring destinations larger vessels cannot reach. Its size and amenities make it a perfect vehicle for Road Scholar participants to learn about scenic locations like Mackinac Island, a Victorian-era haven where cars are forbidden and horse-drawn carriages rule the roads.

“Road Scholar offers hundreds of Adventures Afloat for people who wish to explore and learn about the world aboard ship,” said James Moses, president and CEO of Road Scholar. “We think the Victory 1 is a perfect floating campus and we’ve reserved it exclusively for Road Scholar participants on several itineraries on the Great Lakes and Cuba. This is a unique opportunity for people interested in learning about the five Great Lakes to enjoy a rich learning experience only Road Scholar can provide on a beautifully appointed small ship.”
