Hearing the stories of distant and ancient places your history teacher never mentioned is only a small part of the enjoyment of a cruise holiday. Still, every aspect of the voyage should be a fun experience. Enhancing time in port for cruise guests while on shore excursions is the aim of Cruise through History. It is a joy to be a tiny part of a travel industry that is large and growing. Cruise travel presents such a wonderful way to experience the world that most ships leave port with every stateroom filled. 2016 can be your year to join Cruise through History at sea.
