If you have never taken a genealogy cruise, I strongly recommend you try one. It is educational for the genealogist and any family members you bring along will also find plenty of entertainment as well. Unlock the Past Cruises has now published a new catalog of its forthcoming cruises schedule from mid 2014 to mid 2016. Some of the cruises visit European ports of call, one is a river cruise along the Rhine River, some are in and around Australia and New Zealand, and one is trans-Atlantic, departing from England, visiting Boston, New York, Bermuda, Port Canaveral (Florida) and ending in Miami. Cruises range from 2 nights to 15 nights.
You could also win a free cruise.
Cruising genealogists get to enjoy “how to” presentations and courses, software demonstrations, presentations describing the latest genealogy techniques, good food, gorgeous scenery, and adventurous shore excursions. What could be better?
As stated in the catalog:
“The conference is perfect for beginners and experts—all will learn something on an Unlock the Past cruise. You can meet with like-minded people, expand your genealogy network, participate in special interest groups, and attend your choice of presentations on a huge range of topics. If you have ‘brickwalls’ in your research ask the experts in the Research Help Zone to help demolish them.”

Note: I will be on board the trans-Atlantic cruise in November, 2015. Will I see you there?
