This may be your last opportunity to sign up for an 8-night genealogy cruise, hosted by Gary and Diana Smith. Other speakers will include Donna Moughty, and some guy named Dick Eastman who writes a genealogy newsletter. If you would like to join this fun group of genealogy cruisers, you might want to mark April 15-23, 2018, on your calendar. While 2018 sounds like a long time in the future, it is only 6 months from now. This is the time to be making cruise ship reservations!
The 2018 Eastern Caribbean Genealogy Cruise will be on board the Celebrity Equinox and will sail the Eastern Caribbean. It holds 2,850 passengers. The Equinox was voted the “Best Overall Cruise (Large Ship)” by the Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Awards in 2015.

Departing from Miami, the Celebrity Equinox will stop in San Juan, Puerto Rico; Philipsburg, St. Maarten; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; Punta Cana, Dominican Republic; and Nassau, Bahamas. It will return to Miami on April 23.
