Array Ca/tcuUcuiGwofoc       Cz/iadCcui Gaelic Deck sports—
shuffleboard and
watching passing liners
are part of the fun of a
Great Lakes cruise.
As a short holiday in itself the round-trip
voyage—either way—aboard "Keewatin," or
"Assiniboia" is attractive. Schedules allow
time for visits to Toronto and southern Ontario for eastbound passengers. Westbound
passengers who have chosen the leisurely
interlude of the scenic steamship voyage up
the Great Lakes have an ample opportunity
for sight seeing. Between the breakfast time
arrival of the ship at the Lakehead and the
lunch time westward departure of "The
Canadian" there is time for sightseeing at Fort
William and Port Arthur ...time to see the
great harbour...the huge grain elevators..*
the parks of both cities...the Fort William
Zoo devoted to local wild life ... and, with
the opening of the great St. Lawrence Seaway,
to watch the evolution of Canada's head of
inland waterway navigation into an international deep sea port.
The rugged beauty of the Great Lakes...the thrill of steamship life...the romance of cruising the world's largest
inland waterways... historic sights... long, lazy, brilliant days... cool nights with stars swinging low... pleasant
companions ... holiday atmosphere ... shipboard life the Canadian Pacific way. West-, or east-bound across
Canada you can include a Great Lakes voyage in your itinerary. Twice every summer week S.S. Keewatin and
S.S. Assiniboia sail from Port McNicoll and Fort William. Two water-borne nights and most of two days are a
pleasant interlude in your transcontinental journey*
