Vista Cruise Back-Up* We will return to school early/delay our field trip in the case of a Vista cancellation. We will visit a park (i.e. Enger Tower, Hartley Park, Park Point, etc.) in the case of a Vista cancellation. We will come up with a different back-up plan in the case of a Vista cancellation. Please be aware that the Vista cruise captain has the authority to determine whether the weather conditions mandate the cruise to be cancelled. In that event, you will still be able to visit Great Lakes Aquarium at the time allotted in your schedule.
