Planning for the second-annual Classical Conversations® Capstone Cruise has already kicked into high gear. The five-day cruise and celebration will be on board the Carnival Valor cruise ship, April 30-May 4, 2017.
The first Capstone Cruise May 1-5 was such a success that Classical Conversations® CEO Robert Bortins decided to make it an annual event.
More than 350 people—CC students, parents and staff—joined in the first Capstone Cruise to the Bahamas, May 1-5, which featured a national CC graduation ceremony with 21 graduates, and the national championships in National Memory Masters and National Number Knockout.
“We were surprised by the degree of interest and had such a great time on the first cruise, that we decided we had to do it again,” Bortins said. “We’d love to grow the Capstone Cruise to the point that we could book the whole ship!”
The graduation ceremony and national championships will be the same next year, but CC has upgraded the cruise ship from the Triumph-class Victory to the Conquest-class Valor. The Valor is a bit larger, longer and four years newer than the Victory. The larger Valor has accommodations for almost 3,000 guests and also offers more eating and activities options.
The 2017 Capstone Cruise will depart from Port Canaveral, Florida, Sunday, April 30, 2017 at 12:30 p.m. and will return to port at 8 a.m. on Thursday, May 4.
