Could Sturgeon Bay be cruise ship port of call?

Viking Cruises will be adding the Great Lakes in 2022. The price point for the eight-day voyages runs upwards of seven-thousand dollars per person. Many of the routes end, or begin, in Milwaukee. That means a lot of disposable income will be passing by Door County. Municipal Services Director Mike Barker says infrastructure needs to help make Sturgeon Bay a port of call could add up to a hefty price tag.

 


There’s more to consider. The cruise ship commissioned for Great Lakes operation is 665 feet long. Sturgeon Bay’s pier today is equipped to comfortably fit a ship roughly 450 feet in length. To bridge the difference Sturgeon Bay would need to make additional waterfront property purchases.
