MACKINAW CITY, MI – A Michigan maritime museum is offering two people the trip of a lifetime; a five-day cruise aboard a Great Lakes freighter.

Through a random drawing hosted by the Icebreaker Mackinaw Maritime Museum, one lucky winner and his/her guest will have the opportunity to travel aboard one of the vessels in Central Marine Logistics’ fleet.

Freighters in the fleet include the 728-foot Joseph L. Block and the 678-foot Wilfred Sykes. The company also owns the 730-foot Edward L. Ryerson, but the vessel has been in layup since 2009.

As part of the grand prize, winners will have access to the specific ship owner’s quarters, stateroom and lounge, all of which overlook the deck.
