Chicago’s Municipal Pier, opened in 1916, and known as Navy Pier since 1927, no longer greets cruise ships

Last week Azamara Club Cruises announced that it was acquiring the newest of the eight “R” class ships, thus giving it a fleet of three sister ships. She will be named Azamara Pursuit. Still in the all-inclusive arena, Silversea has announced that it will lengthen its Silver Spirit so as closely to approximate the size of its flagship, the Silver Muse and her planned sister ship Silver Moon. The Azamara Pursuit and lengthened Silver Spirit will both be delivered in March 2018. Meanwhile, Hapag-Lloyd’s Hanseatic Inspiration and Ponant’s Le Champlain are due to be introduced to the Great Lakes in 2020, and pre-bookings can now be made with both lines. But the question arises as to where they will berth in Chicago.
