Fall 2016 Peru Parent Trip

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, fifty students and parents explored Peru on the Fall 2016 Parent Trip. The trip started in Lima and the group traveled to Cusco for the highlight of the trip, an afternoon at Machu Picchu. The Parent Trip is a great tradition that Semester at Sea offers parents and family members of current voyagers. Previous Parent Trips have joined the ship in various ports, including South Africa, Morocco, Spain, Vietnam, Turkey, Italy, and more.


A few student voyagers were happy to share their experience on the Fall 2016 Peru Parent Trip:
