- 2021 CHRISTMAS SHIP CANCELLED — The Lions Christmas Cruise has been cancelled for the year 2021 because of unresolved issues regarding SOLAS (Safety Of Life At Sea) regulations currently in discussion between the U.S.A. and Canada governments. These are requirements for vessels carrying passengers and guests on International Waters. They will require extensive changes in vessels and their crew training. The cost is tremendous and cannot be completed in time for the Christmas Cruise. There is no ship this side of the Great Lakes capable of qualifying in time for the 2021 Lions Christmas Ship cruise. On the singularly positive side, it appears that the Christmas Ship will be running in 2022.
