Cruise Ship Graces Mackinac Island Harbor



The six decks of Pearl Mist, a Pearl Seas Cruises vessel, tower above the buildings on the Arnold Dock Friday, August 22. Bicyclists are seen stopped to take in the sight along M-185 by Mackinac Island State Harbor as a horse team enters view, heading toward downtown. The vessel stops at Mackinac Island on its journeys between Chicago, Illinois, and Toronto, Ontario. The ship is 335 feet long, can hold 210 passengers, and was first launched June 25. In its first season making port on Mackinac Island, Pearl Mist has visited the Island four times since late July, as of Thursday, August 28. The vessel stays moored at the Arnold dock for the day when it is in port, allowing time for passengers to visit the Island, according to Arnold Line Island Dockmaster Keith Martin. The vessel will visit the Island two more times in September. The six decks of Pearl Mist, a Pearl Seas Cruises vessel, tower above the buildings on the Arnold Dock Friday, August 22.
