I have a rating on a scale of 1-to-10 for you on the MWS Alaska Cruise. We hit a 11.5 and above every day.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
From the Midwest to the West— I have a rating on a scale of 1-to-10 for you on the MWS Alaska Cruise. We hit a 11.5 and above every day. Thanks for everything. And thanks for all the staff courtesies extended to us on our arrival in Seattle on July 4; throughout the cruise and departure from the Amsterdam. It was a real blessing. Keep up the good work and thanks again for everything. You're the best; the very best!

The love God surrounded me with through the people and music was unbelievable.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
My husband and I cruised with the homecoming crowd to Canada last year and felt we had experienced a little bit of what heaven will be like: great fellowship, great music, great food and beautiful scenery! In fact we loved it so much we signed up for the Alaskan cruise only to have my husband pass away unexpectedly last October. I wasn't going to go on the Alaskan cruise but felt God's leading me to go. What healing it brought to me. The love God surrounded me with through the people and music was unbelievable. I hope to cruise with the Gaithers and all the homecoming folks again sometime. If you have never done the cruises, don't hesitate. It was wonderful and beyond words!

It was such an extreme and amazing blessing.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Wanted to say thank you to your entire team. I was able to take my mom on three cruises with the Gaithers before my mom was diagnosed with dementia. It was such an extreme and amazing blessing. Love the Gaithers and your people were amazing. So kind. Enjoyed it so much.

"It was week of fellowship with new people from around the world."
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
We recently went on the cruise with Dr. Stanley and his son, Andy. It was week of fellowship with new people from around the world. The ministry was outstanding and the Christian music was unlike anything we had experienced. The staff of Inspiration took good care of us throughout the week and made sure any questions or requests were promptly addressed. ...A wonderful week in our "Walk of Faith" that will be remembered for a lifetime.

"Music out of this world. It was a life changing week for the 3 of us. Inspirational and heart warming."
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
I used to own my own Travel Agency and specialized in group cruises. I also escorted and traveled with my groups so am well aware of how difficult it is to prepare and organize EVERYTHING for your guests. Extremely impressed with EVERYTHING. I am on Oxygen and am 76 years old so walked with a walker and carried Oxygen. I needed lots of help and the Inspiration staff were IMPECCABLE. Gaither's activities were excellent. Music out of this world. It was a life changing week for the 3 of us. Inspirational and heart warming. Music divine and out of this world. BEST trip EVER. I would recommend it to everyone. Thanks for such a safe, uplifting, magical, spiritual week.

"The Gaither entertainment during the cruise exceeded expectations as well. Our last cruise with them was 3 years ago and they continue to improve upon an already perfect presentation."
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
The Gaither Homecoming Cruise was top-notch from beginning to end. Inspiration Cruises personnel engaged with us via internet, telephone and mail during the entire sign up process. We were treated with the utmost respect and dignity as they assigned us exactly the accommodations we requested. We were sent a special package, picked up at the hotel, ushered through the arrival process, led to our stateroom, reunited with our luggage and treated with extraordinary care throughout our stay on the ship. The special treatment we received at the Neptune Lounge and its superb staff was outstanding in everyway. Every detail of each of the shore excursions we selected were handled in detail and expertly planned by the staff. The Gold Mine Tour was a particular treat. The information and demonstrations of the mining process exceeded all expectations. Of course, the Gaither entertainment during the cruise exceeded expectations as well. Our last cruise with them was 3 years ago and they continue to improve upon an already perfect presentation. We were absolutely astonished at the performances and how they truly glorified our God, Jesus Christ. The exit from the cruise was every bit as perfect as the arrival. Instructions from the ship, stateroom and Neptune Lounge staff was perfect and got us to the airport at least 3 hours ahead of our planned flight. We were very well pleased!!! Can't wait for the next Inspiration Cruise!!

It felt as if we were in their living room sharing in a family gathering
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
We were totally amazed with the whole experience. The cruise FAR exceeded our expectations. The Gaithers put on two programs a day but they made each concert special for the group attending. It felt as if we were in their living room sharing in a family gathering yet each performance was so professional. Do they ever need to practice? The pianist was fantastic and NO music! All the performers were so down to earth and gracious. The highlight for me was Angela Primm's rendition of Days of Elijah at the Farewell Concert. The statement "No God Like Jehovah!" will forever bring tears to my eyes. We can't wait for our next cruise!

Our trip...was nothing but fun and exciting. Even seating was worked out to let everyone have a front row seat at least twice.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Hello: I'll start by saying that no one can make a trip and be 100% happy with everything. People forget to enjoy the experience and overlook minor problems. Our trip with inspiration cruises and the Gaither Homecoming group was nothing but fun and exciting. Even seating was worked out to let everyone have a front row seat at least twice. I will give some tips for first timers like myself. 1. Sign up and pay for your cruse no later than 8 months ahead of time. 2. Pick a room close to the middle of the ship and I found out the deck where the life boots are is perfect. you have access to go completely around the ship without climbing stairs or using elevators. It also has chairs for sitting and watching or photo shoots. But a Balconey room is great to. 3. Pay extra for before and after ship boarding and departing. You are picked up at your motel or airport in a limo and your bags are taken away at the dock and you escorted right up on the ship. At departing, you go through customs and are pick up quickly by the limo service and taken to your flight or motel. 4. Book a motel room coming and going if you can because the time schedules between the air lines and the ship can get you stranded in Seattle. Take a flight in one day early and stay over one day. Really, what's the hurry. 5. The food is great, but watch out, it is GOURMET and very yummy and rich, something most people are not used to and I almost made myself sick by over eating the first day. The upper deck cafe is open almost all the time so take it easy at first. Very little English spoken by the crew, so ask for yellow, white, bread, simple words that they hear all the time. 4. Last but not the least, book all your off shore excursions after you get on the ship. They will be automatically charged to your room and you receive a ticket to do each excursion. After the cruse, you receive an itemized bill from the ship to pay. it was great. We only carried $500.00 with us as spending money and came back with $400.00 after the trip. You don't (have to carry a lot of cash). But I will say that my wife and I got the experience of a life time. the scenery was great the people were great on and off the ship and we really enjoyed ourselves. I would do it again. Lloyd Stark
