Juno at Ivy Lea Bridge © Lorraine MorrilThe Polish Steamship Company (Polsteam) is about to introduce a new tramp-style cargo-passenger service with occasional sailings from the UK port ot Newport, Wales, to ports in the Great Lakes. The first sailing will take place in early April and passenger bookings are being taken on a standby basis.

Fares will be US $1,640 per passenger in single or double cabins from Newport to ports between Montreal and Detroit, and $1,880 to ports above Detroit. Port charges are $132 per person extra. The first sailing will likely be by the Juno, pictured above by Lorraine Morril passing beneath the Ivy Lea Bridge in the Thousand Islands.

Intending passengers who are not US or Canadian citizens require a full US B1/B2 Visa to enter the United States by cargo ship.  If there are direct sailings to Canadian ports, US visas may not be required. Space may also be available from the Great Lakes once destinations are known.
