There is much more here! With many great particulars about this event, I think it’s easier to simply write almost a list.

In that – we sail round trip once again from lovely San Diego, CA (very fondly remember Hawaii cruise?); an easy get to embarkation city; we sail on a 1423 passenger ship (as opposed to a gargantuan); enjoy a 14 day cruise with 4 full days at sea which all means loads of time to intimately engage (“hang time” as Tom Hanks calls it) with one another and guests; then eight ports to engage more so or explore; includes an astonishing event such as a full solar eclipse, a private area for eclipse viewing; even better is that we’ll have friendly amateur & professional astronomer scientists, an astronaut and a family of dedicated travelers who are also eclipse chasers in our private area to engage with as well!; then there is the optional choices to attend a production from Insight Cruises astronomy conference program – want to immerse yourself into exoplanets, the Webb telescope, travels to Mars and ask an astronaut questions? Yes, we are a crossover event.

We have to also mention – Aaron and I have directed many of these special events for Insight Cruises in the past – so fulfilling, educational and enlightening! Can’t say enough about the quantity of brain food passed to you!! Either way – hope you can join us for the cruise and science adventure of a full solar eclipse – if not even more – the full or limited conference. Additionally, the conference portion will sell out for sure!! So, please reserve asap. Not only that – but, for these lifetime special events – the ship will sell out as well.

Oh yes – think I mentioned “guests” above but didn’t specifically mention that Tim Russ is an amateur astronomer and sailing. And John de Lancie just responded with “the cruise sounds like a lot of fun. . . . Count Marnie and I in.” How about a Q vs Tuvok/Spock reading??

So we have a terrific opportunity to once again enjoy a different culture, learn some science, leave our comfort zone and get real! Remembering our trip to CERN and actually being able to go down into the collider tunnel?? WOW – right!?

Loads of details and choices to make – though don’t worry – the trip is easy to put together for you! Call or email with questions. Also, please leave us a message, and we’ll get back to you.
