Bon Voyage! A Semester at Sea Unveils Their Newest Ship: The MV World Odyssey!
Boy-oh-boy have ships come a long way since my voyage with a Semester at Sea in 1968!
Today, September 12th, a Semester at Sea will be unveiling their newest ship, the MV World Odyssey! The grand unveiling of the MV World Odyssey will take place in the Port of Southampton, England followed by a celebration introducing the new ship as part of the Semester at Sea family.
On September 13th, the ship will set sail and embark on its first voyage - so exciting!
As a Semester at Sea alumni I always enjoy receiving updates about the program that did so much for me. As I wrote about in a past blog (A Semester at Sea in 1968), attending World Campus Afloat, now known as Semester at Sea back in 1968 changed me as a person. I arrived home from my adventure more mature, with great knowledge of the world and a whole new perspective on life.
Needless to say, I'm very excited to see photos from the unveiling ceremony. I have no doubt in my mind that this new vessel will help change the lives of many teens, just as the SS Ryndam did for me.
