TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Just got back from our Alaskan cruise with such great memories and new friendships! Saw so much of God's wonders and felt his presence throughout the preaching of Charles and Andy Stanley, all the fantastic music groups...plus Dennis Swanberg! A really great trip!

The people you brought on for entertainment were fantastic, a very spiritual experience.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Your planning of the entertainment on this cruise was excellent. The people you brought on for entertainment were fantastic, a very spiritual experience. We totally enjoyed all of them and they were all so friendly when we found them off stage. I was surprised that Dr. Stanley was able to be out and about so much greeting and talking with people, it would have worn me out. The excursions we took at each port were all great except for one but the others were so fantastic and there always as to be "one".

TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
This was my first cruise, I was taking my grand sons 11 & 13 years old as well. My first contact with Inspiration was a call to have many questions answered before I made the commitment to embark on this adventure. Oh the patience and kindness of Josh (?). He guided me through each and every detail. I so enjoy the blog /news letter-- this company at every turn keeps Christ at the centre! They partnered with Holland American and their staff too was helpful, kind and most gracious. The programs ran smoothly and we enjoyed the concerts and teachings. I would give Inspiration Cruises a 5++ Star rating God bless your endeavours you truly blessed me and my grand sons. It was a trip of a life time not words enough to express my gratitude to all.

TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
We had a wonderful time, as we experienced the beauty of God's creation as well as the fellowship of many of wonderful Christian people who have become life-time friends. We plan to travel with them again on land (those from around our dinner table.) We also appreciated the ministry of the word from both Charles and Andy Stanley. The main reason we scheduled this cruise was to hear the Collingsworth Family however, and we were disappointed that they did not sing more often. Some of the other music groups that DID perform were not to our liking and they performed many times, even repeating selections and by their own admission it was because they were "out" of music. Also there were some days that there were few "events" scheduled and on other days when we visited a port we also had as many as three events as well. We would have preferred to have things more evenly spread out. The food and accommodations were excellent and we were well cared for by the cruise staff. We have done many cruises but never with Holland American before. Their ships are not as fancy, but the staff was top-notch.

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

It was truly a memorable trip–great food, great people, great Christian seminars, etc.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
It was our first cruise and truly a delight. I commend you on the fine job of coordination for such a large group of people. It was truly a memorable trip–great food, great people, great Christian seminars, etc. The office staff was also great. They were always helpful and assisted us in many ways and eliminated our anxieties.

My husband and I went on one of your packages to Alaska. Shelley McNiff was exceptional in assisting us through all the uncharted territories that we had to go in order to register for this cruise; others were helpful, but Shelly was extraordinary, to put it mildly!
