Program Registration. From 5:00-5:30 p.m. After you have your room assignment, come over to the Road Scholar table to register with the program staff and get your welcome packet. This will contain your up-to-date schedule that reflects any last-minute changes and other important information. You will also learn when and where dinner and orientation session will take place and what time you should meet in the lobby. If you arrive late, please ask for your packet when you check-in.
Meeting in the hotel lobby at a specified time, we'll walk to a local restaurant where we'll have dinner, including salad, entree, sides, and dessert. Coffee, tea, soft drinks and water included; other beverages available for purchase.
Orientation: The group leader will greet everyone and lead introductions. We will review the up-to-date program schedule and any changes, discuss roles and responsibilities, logistics, safety guidelines, emergency procedures and answer questions. Unless specified otherwise, land transportation will be provided primarily by motorcoach, thereby necessitating going up/down a few steps when boarding/getting off. Free time is reserved for your personal independent exploration. Evenings at leisure offer opportunities to make the program more meaningful and memorable through personal independent exploration, attending performances or other events on your own, or simply relaxing and making new friends among fellow Road Scholars. The group leader will always be happy to offer suggestions. Program activities, schedules, personnel, and indicated distances or times may change due to local circumstances/conditions. In the event of changes, we will alert you as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding. In addition to lectures and field trips exclusively for our Road Scholar group, you are invited to take advantage of the many activities and events aboard ship that are separate from the Road Scholar program.
