    I’m not sure whether the students have reached Morocco or not – but would totally appreciate the panel opinions on any outstanding religious currents they noticed (post Arab “Spring”) ?

    What a wonderful piece! Thank you, Semester at Sea and the students involved, so much for doing this. I sailed on the Summer 2010 voyage and there were many questions about Islam during our voyage, so it is great to hear that this dialogue took place in a safe environment, open to honest questions and answers.

    Ramadan Kareem.
