Genealogy cruises are some of the most enjoyable trips I have ever taken. Now the long-time cruise experts who produce Legacy Family Tree software have announced they will hold a cruise September 22-29, 2017 along the Pacific coast:

legacy-genealogy-cruise-2017The 14th annual Legacy Genealogy Cruise, to be held September 22-29, 2017, departs from Seattle, Washington aboard Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas ship and will feature top genealogy speakers including members of the Legacy Family Tree staff.

Do I gather that you’ll be one of the “experts” leading the classes? Do you know at this point what your subject will be? Do you know who some of the other instructors will be? And their subjects?

A couple of years ago I was signed up for a week long genealogy cruise to Alaska, with many more days of classes than this. How many days of classes is typical? I’m not particularly interested in all the cruise activities, but I can keep myself interested anywhere as long as I don’t get seasick.

As it happened, I got sick a few weeks ahead of time and my doctor refused to let me go–real bummer. It would have been my first cruise, my first trip to AK. It would have knocked one more state off the four I’ve never been too–it would be hard to get to AK, HA, SC, and VT, and feel like I’d had a real vacation. I was very glad I’d paid for trip insurance. It was refunded quickly and cheerfully.

I’ve read the little amount of info offered on this one. I am, unfortunately, one of those people who snores, even with my CPAP, so I need a single room. Are they very hard to get? It sounds like I’ll have to pay exactly double. Is that right?

Since I live in Seattle, at least the extra transportation costs will be minimal.



    —> Do I gather that you’ll be one of the “experts” leading the classes?

    No. I will not be on this cruise.

    It may be confusing as I am one of the presenters on an earlier Caribbean genealogy cruise next month but not on the later Legacy cruise of the Pacific coast in September.

    As to your other questions, all I know is what was mentioned in the above announcement. If you have questions, you might want to ask the people planning the Legacy Cruise. I noticed the above announcement states, “To reserve a cabin, or ask questions, contact our travel coordinator, Christy, at 1-425-222-6222 or send an email to LegacyFamilyTreeCruise@gmail.com.”
