SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - Sheboygan will be a port of call for an upscale Great Lakes cruise ship next summer.

The Yorktown will carry up to 138 passengers on 7 one-week cruises throughout the Great Lakes from June through August.

Sheboygan will be the only Wisconsin stop on each trip.

Sheboygan County tourism director Amy Wilson says local leaders are excited – and it’s another way to put the community on the map.

Officials have tried to for some time to get the city to host a cruise ship – but the Sheboygan River in the South Pier area is too shallow.

The Army Corps of Engineers will fix that, when they deepen the channel. It’s now about 4 feet deep – and the Corps will make it 14 feet deep.

The Yorktown’s cruises will begin and end in both Detroit and Chicago. They’ll cost anywhere from $4,000 to $7,000.
