Alumni Testimonial

Alumni sail on a Go Next cruise.“Our Baltic Treasures cruise [in August 2012] with Oceania Cruises was great. We truly experienced a sense of history and beauty. The food was exceptional, and the staff was attentive. Our daughters were thrilled to find Willie Aames, a teenage idol, was cruise director!”
