Customer Testimonials
We love long cruises as passengers relax and settle into their favorite routine. The sea days are packed with outstanding lectures and enrichment programs. There are classes on computers, iPads, languages, piano, bridge, yoga, Pilates, ballroom dancing, memoir writing, golf, arts and crafts and more.
- Lynn and Buddy Lewis, Cruise Specialists Voyage Hosts
You meet a lot of people on a world cruise. In a way it is like an extended family. It becomes part of your life. I still have friends on the world cruises and it’s kind of like my home. It’s a way of life that’s nice and pleasant. Whatever your tastes, you need never be bored on this ship.
