All of a sudden there is more activity on the Great Lakes, first with the announcement of the addition of Victory Cruise Line’ 202-berth Victory II for 2018 and then Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ new 230-berth expedition ship Hanseatic Inspiration in 2020. Another expedition ship, possibly Ponant’s 184-berth Le Champlain, is also said to be on the way. And we have a quick look at two impending newbuildings, MSC Cruises’ 4,134-berth MSC Seaside and the 600-berth Seabourn Ovation, new sister to the Seabourn Encore.
