Genealogy Cruise through the Panama Canal

I have never taken a genealogy cruise, but it sounds like lots of fun! They combine genealogy classes with the benefits of a cruise for a unique vacation. Here is the announcement from Legacy Family Tree about their 2013 cruise:

The 10th annual Legacy Genealogy Cruise, to be held September 22 through October 7, 2013, starts in San Diego, California and ends in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and will feature speakers Megan Smolenyak, Karen Clifford, Geoff Rasmussen, Randy Seaver and others. It will visit the following ports:
  • San Diego, California
  • Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
  • Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
  • Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala
  • Puntarenas, Costa Rica
  • Panama Canal (cruising)
  • Colon, Panama
  • Cartagena, Columbia
  • Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Experience the Panal Canal the way you've always dreamed
Stand face-to-face with the grandeur of the Panama Canal aboard Celebrity Cruises - the only cruise that gives you a full vacation while crossing the Continental Divide. When the Celebrity Millennium enters the canal, it will rise 85 feet in one of the legendary Gatun Locks. As you cross the Continental Divide - a journey that took mariners of long ago many years to complete - a new world of wonder and amazement awaits you on the other side. Join us for what will undoubtedly be an enlightening and rewarding journey.

Genealogy Classes at Sea
While at sea attend classes taught by some of genealogy's finest educators, Legacy Family Tree webinar speakers, and Legacy developers:
  • Megan Smolenyak
  • Karen Clifford
  • Geoff Rasmussen
  • Randy Seaver
  • Steve Salisbury
  • Dave Berdan
  • Ken McGinnis
  • Luc Comeau
In addition to the classes, you will benefit from the small-group sessions and lots of time to learn from each other.

The Ship
Luxurious accommodations and intuitive service consistently place Celebrity Millennium at the top of the rankings among large cruise ships. A favorite of many vacationers, Celebrity Millennium was "Solsticized" in May of 2012 and emerged with many award-winning Solstice® Class features. She's been renewed with spa-inspired AquaClass® staterooms, the AquaClass signature restaurant, Blu, and the addition of verandas to her chic Celebrity Suites. We can't think of a better way to experience the exotic beauty of the Panama Canal than aboard Celebrity Millennium. Out of the ordinary? Definitely.
