Cruising Is Back: Enjoy the Best Experiences
After more than a year of being shut down by the pandemic, cruise ships are finally departing U.S. shores again. These sailings represent the first steps toward a thrilling return to cruise travel. Cruises are one of the best ways to explore new places, and we can’t wait to reconnect with our favorite destinations. Here are a few things our staff and Christian travelers are eagerly anticipating:
Cruising takes you into unique settings known for their fascinating cultures, friendly people and scenic beauty. All creation testifies to the glory of the Lord and our cruises take you to places that proclaim His wonder at full volume. View the glaciers and mountains of Alaska, sail the emerald waters of the Caribbean and beaches of Mexico or take in the vibrant autumn shorelines of Canada and New England. There is no better way to soak in the sights of these alluring destinations than from the deck of a cruise ship.
One vacation, multiple experiences
When it comes to a vacation, world-class variety is the name of the game. If you want to experience multiple destinations during your trip, there’s no better way to do so than on a cruise. You only unpack once and don’t have to travel in a car or airplane, trying to pass the time. In the span of your journey, you’ll visit numerous ports. Disembark the ship while you’re there and explore! New people, exciting experiences, different cultures and a wide variety of local foods are waiting for you at every stop. When finished, hop aboard your ship, where lively entertainment and delicious cuisine await you.
Our Christian cruises offer more than just spectacular views—they are floating music festivals featuring some of Christian music’s most famous artists. A single one-night concert by MercyMe, Sandi Patty or The Isaacs would be amazing. But sailing with them on a Christian cruise means multiple exclusive concerts and meet-and-greet opportunities to interact with your favorite musicians—all while traveling together to new places.
You’ve heard sermons or read books from high-profile pastors like David Jeremiah. You may have even traveled to attend a Bible conference featuring leaders like Alistair Begg or Max Lucado. But a cruise allows you to hear these powerful, insightful voices for a full week! Instead of a single night’s topic, you’ll enjoy a fully realized series. Strengthen your faith and remember all you learned for years to come.
Some of the best meals we’ve ever had have been the products of the world-class chefs onboard our favorite cruise lines. These chefs and their talented culinary teams design meals using fresh ingredients and regional flavors and deliver them to you with impeccable hospitality. As cruising resumes and restaurants open on all ships, coffee shops, snack bars and extraordinary fine dining will be available. Take the opportunity to delight your taste buds and try something new.
Cruising is one of the best and most efficient ways to travel the world. Instead of worrying about itineraries, transport or accommodations, you are free to focus on what really matters—spending intentional time with loved ones while growing deeper in your faith. There’s a reason why travelers have referred to our cruises as “spiritual retreats at sea.”
In the wake of the pandemic, cruise lines now represent the leading edge of health screenings and passenger protection. While regulations vary by destination, and restrictions are likely to shift over time, we appreciate their commitment to the safety and enjoyment of every traveler.
A Christian cruise with Inspiration is a convenient and unforgettable way to travel with loved ones. You’ll find spiritual refreshment, see new places and cultivate relationships. You’ll rest and relax. Best of all, many significant travel elements—accommodations, transportation, entertainment and unforgettable experiences—are all included in a single price.
Cruising is finally back, and it just may be better than ever. We can’t wait to travel with you again! Where will you sail first?
