As voted on by overwhelming majority of the ship's crew, the 2017 USS Duluth Reunion will be held in Duluth, Minnesota!

    The scheduled dates are September 6th to 10th, with Wednesday the 6th an early arrival day (no scheduled events or activities) and Sunday the 10th being the check out and return home date.  

    Plans are actively being worked on to solidify arrangements for some of the scheduled events/activities and other available opportunities.  

    Check back often for news releases & updates on the "Plan of the Day" for Thursday, Friday & Saturday, the 7th, 8th & 9th.

    Local attractions and events can be researched using the City of Duluth link provided below. 

    The host hotel will once again be The Suites Hotel at Canal Park, very conveniently located in a very popular area, with easy access to local attractions and walking distance to our USS Duluth Anchor Monument.

    The Suites Hotel can be reached by calling (800) 794-1716.   Make sure to mention the name of our ship for our block of rooms and negotiated group pricing. 

    Info for other hotels nearby can be provided upon request, if desired.

    The Suites Hotel has a number of different kinds of rooms available and every room is a suite, with a kitchen.   Some examples of rooms & pricing are as follows:
  • Studio Queen/King Suites (interior):  $129.00 per night, plus tax
  • Studio King Suites w/sofa sleeper:  $129.00 per night, plus tax
  • Studio Double Suites:  $129.00 per night, plus tax
  • Pool View One Bedroom King Suites:  $129.00 per night, plus tax
  • One Bedroom King Suites:  $169.00 per night, plus tax
  • Two Bedroom King Suites or Whirlpool King Suites:  $189.00 per night, plus tax
  • Two Bedroom Whirlpool Suites: $219.00 per night, plus tax
         A cost saving idea would be to share a multiple bedroom
         suite with a shipmate and split the cost.

    24/7 Coffee will be available in the lobby by the fireplace, which we always seem to take over for  the 4 days, drinking coffee (etc.), telling sea stories and getting reacquainted with old shipmates and friends.  As usual, we are provided with a hot breakfast at no additional cost each morning.

    An informational gathering of all shipmates is planned for the evening of Thursday, September 7th, at the beautiful Duluth Entertainment Convention Center, directly behind the hotel, overlooking Lake Superior - provided to us at no cost by the City of Duluth.
