Surprise port on the horizon!

Picture this: A dark night in the lively capital of Barbados. Street lights flaring orange and white with the odd flicker every now and then. Taxis, lined up at the port waiting for customers and blasting their speakers to drown out the Sunday night parties.

Going Aloft

                You may think me crazy, but I assure you that I am not. It’s just that these people around me seem so much bigger than they are sometimes. With their great noises and unending motion, their motor-run mouths and the space they take. When you truly stop, breathe, and stare, there’s something in the disorder that sweeps you away, pulling you into its current. They do not sway like the ship on days of heavy wind. They vibrate. Oftentimes, I along with them, buzz at high frequency. It’s how you stay afloat here.

A Tribute to Class Afloat Ships

Celebrating the bond between Floaties

A Floatie: an inflatable object on which a person may sit or recline while floating in water. Or, in Class Afloat speak, a friend, crew mate and companion with whom you have shared life-changing experiences and who keeps you afloat, making you feel at ease, safe and confident in your own skin.

In Search of Sahara Sun

In Search of Sahara Sun

Stepping off the Gulden Leeuw was definitely a change in this port, compared to the others. Personally, I have been to Morocco before, but most of the students onboard weren't used to the shock of such a different culture.
