97% percent of Semester at Sea alumni say their voyage was their “most significant” semester in college. There are many reasons for that, but one that comes up most often is the on-ship experience while at sea.
The Semester at Sea shipboard community is unlike any other. With over 600 students, faculty, staff, and Lifelong Learners on board, voyagers build connections with people from around the world with whom to explore and become lifelong friends.
As the Spring 2023 Voyage has officially set sail, we are excited to share more about our current shipboard community!
