Here's what people are saying about previous World Academy voyages:
“An around-the-world voyage had been on my must-do list for over twenty years, so I approached this trip with great expectations. All were met or exceeded. I learned more than in any other four-month period in my life. It filled me with wonder, humility and gratitude that I had such a wonderful opportunity. There is no way you could choose for yourself so many varied and fabulous excursions among the endless possibilities in the world.”
“Being away for a long time changes your outlook. After a week or two you leave home behind. You become more open and your personality changes a little bit. You become an explorer!”
