Carol and Howard, our highly educated educators, were simply the best. They had worked diligently on their slide presentations so that we had a broad background on the nature side of the places we visited. They were always available to us; looked after us; entertained us and upon request, Howard would do the polka with you. I did request that on future adventures with them, they provide a handout with the factual data so we could review and remember what we had learned from them.
The Crystal Cruise ship was all that a cruise ship should be. The one sour note was the internet service: it was outrageously expensive, extremely slow, and didn't always work. Other than that, I would certainly cruise with them again. I enjoyed the whole cruise but most of the ports of call really offered primarily scuba and snorkeling shore excursions.
As always, the best part of the Road Scholar program consists of the other Road Scholars. We had a varied group with interesting backgrounds, unique life stories, all of whom, well, most of whom made great traveling companions.
