What will happen on the cruise?
Classical Conversations adults and students will join together for a celebration of classical skills and achievement. Your hosts will be the leadership of Classical Conversations.
One mom declared last year's cruise, "A family reunion with people you just met!" Of all the features of the cruise, the top cited benefit was, "My kids made friends with other CC kids from all over the country." In addition to two competitions and a graduation ceremony, all of which featured remarkable young people, parent-educators, and several grandparents, imagine seeing lively discussions late into each evening at long tables with like-minded adults. Join us this year to be part of the cruise conversations, competitions and celebrations!
The 2017 Classical Conversations four-night (five-day) cruise and celebration will be on board the Carnival Liberty cruise ship. The Liberty departs 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 30, 2017 from Port Canaveral, FL destined for two ports in the Bahamas, Freeport and Nassau, returning at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 4, 2017.
