Another genealogy cruise finished on Saturday. A group of genealogists on board the Celebrity Reflection arrived in Miami, full of new genealogy ideas to try. I was fortunate enough to be one of the presenters on board the seven-day cruise, along with Gary and Diana Smith and Donna Moughty. We made several genealogy presentations during the days at sea. We also had informal in-person discussion periods, one-on-one consultations, and group dinners. There was a LOT of genealogy discussed on this cruise!
The Celebrity Reflection made stops in Cozumel, Mexico; Georgetown, Grand Cayman; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; and and unscheduled stop in Nassau, Bahamas. The unscheduled stop occurred because the weather was a bit too rough to stop at our planned day in Coco Cay, Bahamas. Nassau was a last-minute substitution. Actually, I have been to both places in the past and preferred Nassau over Coco Cay anyway so I was pleased. I also did not hear any other passengers complaining.
If you ever have an opportunity to take a genealogy cruise, I strongly suggest you take advantage of the opportunity. I suspect you will not be disappointed. Of course, your family members will also enjoy accompanying you, even if they are not interested in genealogy. Cruise ships have something for everyone!
