As we continue into week two of the Spring 2016 Voyage, students are beginning to get their sea legs.  After a day in Hawaii, the MV World Odyssey began its 11 day journey to Japan.  On Jan. 15 the shipboard community crossed the International Date Line and woke up on Jan. 17.  Take a look at this week’s posts and stay tuned for the beginning of our adventure in Japan!

Academic Dean’s Spring 2016 Blog

Are you a parent looking for more a more detailed account of your son or daughter’s voyage?  The academic dean of the Spring 2016 Voyage, Victor Luftig has created a blog just for you!

When we sailed last time, it occurred to me that if I were a parent whose child was sailing as a student I would be grateful to hear occasionally from an adult on board who was describing what it was like to be on the ship.  Semester at Sea does a great job of posting on Facebook and elsewhere as a voyage goes on: I don’t mean to compete with that, and if you are a parent, I hope you’ll check in on those kinds of postings too.  But it’s not really their job to say, ‘Well, the seas were choppy for a while, but now they’re smooth,’ or ‘A lot of students are relaxing in the sun on the deck right now,’ or ‘People really seemed to go for the ice cream sundaes in the dining room tonight,’ and I won’t mind sharing those kinds of profundities–as well as accounts of what things re like from my side (the academic side).
