Grenada, Mississippi
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.

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. 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!

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.

"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!

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.

We will always remember the excursions and the unimaginable aqua waters.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Tahiti with Charles Swindoll... We eagerly looked forward to our fourth trip with Chuck Swindoll and Inspiration Cruises. The attention to detail has always been evident and this trip was no exception. The choice of WindStar cruises was excellent and they provided a high quality staff and service...as well as a great destination of French Polynesia. We will always remember the excursions and the unimaginable aqua waters. The Wind Spirit was a beautiful ship...definitely a home away from home....and the surprise meals and experiences were a thrill to behold. The entire vacation was a wonderful memory and we look forward to another adventure with Inspiration Cruises.
