In less than three days, more than 300 people will embark on the second-annual Classical Conversations Capstone Cruise. The five-day cruise and celebration will be on board the Carnival Liberty cruise ship, April 30-May 4, 2017.
The cruise again includes the national championships for National Memory Masters and National Number Knockout, the winners of which will receive $10,000 grand prizes, but it features CC’s official graduation ceremony for 27 graduates this year.
For those going on the cruise, there’s plenty to do onboard ship: current and classic movies, floor shows, the Punchliner Comedy Club, two pools and a giant poolside movie screen, even a giant, twisting waterslide. For the young and young at heart, Dr. Seuss will be your cruise director. Beginning with the Dr. Seuss character parade, interactive storytime and arts and crafts activities, through the Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast, the world’s greatest children’s storybook author and his unforgettable characters will be front and center.
While in Nassau, Bahamas, cruise guests will have the opportunity to take great day excursions including history tours, snorkeling, a day at the Atlantis Aquaventure Park, swimming with dolphins or golfing. Wednesday will be spent in Freeport, Bahamas.
The 2017 Capstone Cruise will depart from Port Canaveral, Florida, Sunday, April 30, 2017 at 12:30 p.m. and will return to port at 8 a.m. on Thursday, May 4.
