Let's start by saying that I've been on several cruises, my favorite being in Key West, FL. This was a step down from that, of course, but still good. All of the crewmembers were pleasant, albeit seemingly pleasant only because they needed the job. One thing I would suggest is for Vista to consider a pre-recorded educational script about the...

We took the Vista Fleet Cruise in Duluth and were amazed at how many sights Duluth had to share on the trip. We took a 1 hr 45 min cruise during the day. We would have chosen the 45 minute one had it not been booked. Make sure YOU BOOK YOUR TICKETS EARLY. We waited until the night before and... More

Narrator just read the text with a low monotonic voice. Torturously dull and boring. Even the boat ride itself was slow and boring. Most passengers talked among themselves just to pass the time. As we departed one passenger commented and was told all the narrators were out sick and this guy was just filling in. Yikes! Give us a break.... More

THIS IS the way to see the beauty of the Duluth harbor and learn of the city's history. We took the longer cruise during the day which was perfect. Enjoyed hearing about the lift bridge's history and then seeing it in action as we went underneath it. The guide had a great sense of humor as well. You could sit... More

We did the shorter 45 min tour, which I thought would be long enough, but felt short to me. Our whole family had a blast on the boat. It was so much fun being out on the water, and of course the views are amazing. The tour guide was great at explaining all the different landmarks, but at times he... More

Grand sight seeing tour was a grand fun time. Narrator (Joe) was full of happy silly nerdy jokes/puns and interesting facts about the harbor, Duluth & Lake Superior. I don't think my husband stopped laughing for very long at all when he was talking, but my husband's sense of humor might be warped. We not only got to go under... More

We took the full tour on Friday, and we are SO GLAD we did! Joe's jokes are corny, yet entertaining. You start out by heading out into the lake, and the view is AMAZING! Then you head back under the lift bridge, and into the harbor. Joe did a great job explaining each of the buildings, and how the docks... More

we did the 1 hr 45 min cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed it! it gives you a chance to watch the aerial lift bridge in action and see the big cargo ships up close. Joe was a excellent guide very informative about all the local places and the way the ships load unload etc. and has a very good sense... More

We have done the longer version of this cruise many times in the past. With small children in tow this time, we chose the shorter, 45 minute tour, which was perfect. Be aware that the boat is smaller and loads on the canal side of the center and not the bay side. If you are looking to sit on top... More
