Loved hearing the back story about how the songs were created
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Loved hearing the back story about how the songs were created and the meanings behind the words. Can't wait for the new album to be released! We loved watching your families and seeing their enthusiasm about the music.

Can't express enough what an amazing experience this was for me. Attention to detail is an understatement. The scheduling and handing of the places of interest, transport from airports and hotels, dining, educational and interested tour guides - all we're perfectly orchestrated to maximize every moment of this adventure.

The scheduling and handing of the places of interest, transport from airports and hotels, dining, educational and interested tour guides - all we're perfectly orchestrated to maximize every moment of this adventure. Through this I've not only grown in experience but also in knowledge. I didn't expect to feel more anchored in God's Word but I certainly do. I have been blessed to have this experience of the Holy Land and I thank all involved for making it so wonderful! It's obvious that many hours and many laborers work together to make it all happen. I hope you all feel a sense of pride for doing such a great job that in it's end blesses the lives of so many! This ole gal from Mississippi will never be the same! Shabbat shalom!

This was my first Gaither cruise and definitely will not be my last. It was inspiring to spend time with so many Christians.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
This was my first Gaither cruise and definitely will not be my last. My friend and cabin mate ended up in the hospital in Halifax and the Inspiration Cruise staff and Holland America Veendam staff were wonderful to me. It was inspiring to spend time with so many Christians and I had no feeling of being alone. One of the artists donated CDs and collected CDs from the other artists for my friend who did not get to hear them sing. I am looking forward to the Alaskan Cruise in August 2015.

Diverse lyrics & melodies rich in God’s promises, encouraged me to seek him more
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
“The best week of my life” 2015 Mercy Me Cruise I found new & hidden springs of joy by rejoicing in God with fellow brothers & sisters. His command to “Rejoice and again I say Rejoice”, is so good and right for His people’s welfare that I should do it more often. We aren’t really happy unless we are enjoying Him. For in His presence is fullness of joy & at His right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalm 16:11) Bringing to mind and to heart God’s loving benefits thru the artists and preachers brought real hope that my soul was thirsting for. (Lam 3:21-26) Diverse lyrics & melodies rich in God’s promises, encouraged me to seek him more, as I often mediated on them throughout the day. Having the artists & preachers share their personal and faithful struggles made much of God’s powerful love from perspectives that I had not considered before. God really does inhabit the praises of His people. (Psalm 22:3) The Inspiration Cruise staff was so joyful and helpful throughout the trip. Mange Tusen Takk! (Many Thousand Thanks – Norwegian)

No longer will I read biblical accounts without recalling my own footsteps while visiting the Holy Land...
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Perspective! That’s what changed when my wife and I traveled to Israel. Looking at a map vs. actually visiting biblical sights just won’t compare. Seeing the locations firsthand where the Bible describes the events that have changed recorded history is life changing. No longer will I read biblical accounts without recalling my own footsteps while visiting the Holy Land and knowing the exact terrain and proximity to other landmarks allowing me to better understand the Word of God that much clearer. Perspective…mine has changed.

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 makes the Bible come alive, and it is much easier to picture and understand what the Bible is saying.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Going on the Prayer and Vision Tour of the Holy Land with Joel Rosenberg was our “trip of a lifetime”; we had wanted to go to Israel for years. It makes the Bible come alive, and it is much easier to picture and understand what the Bible is saying. As an example I have included a picture of us on the Mount of Olives in the Garden of Gethsemane with the Eastern Gate of the Temple Mount framed in the background between us. This is one of our favorite pictures. We strongly encourage our friends to consider Inspiration Cruises if they are planning a trip to Israel. The food, transportation, and lodging were great, and we didn't worry about any entrance fees, or tipping; the only thing we worried about was making sure we were on the bus by 7:30 AM, ready to be blessed with another day of touring the land of the Bible.

I had tears streaming down my cheeks as I left the cruise ship. (Really!) So grateful that I was able to go...
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
I went on the very first MercyMe at Sea cruise [in 2015]...I have to say, Inspiration Cruises is professional, truly faithful, and fun! This was my best vacation EVER and it started with the first call for my reservation. I had tears streaming down my cheeks as I left the cruise ship. (Really!) So grateful that I was able to go and I hope there is another trip in the near future. I will be onboard if there is! Thank you!
