The best thing that happened was meeting all the great People. My current best friends are all People i met on-board.

The concept of traveling the world while having classes allows you to get other perspectives and better Insights in what you are actually studying and how it Works in practise.

The athletic program is exiting in the way that u never know what sport comes NeXT. The fact that you visit a lot of different Places opens up for so many possibilities when it comes to sports. Most likely you will participate in all kinds of sports, everything from hiking in the Rainforest to diving With the enormous Creatures of the sea.

Art, Music, and Theatre:

The Clubs at the School allowed us to create an everyday With exiting and fun activities. Baking Club allowed us to treat our-self With good Food and holiday Club allowed us to keep intact With the traditions we had back home.

The dorm life onboard the ship is really unique, it can be challenging but still it is what i miss the most about the program. You sleep in hamocks and you share room With 30 others. This makes it possible to always be together With the amazing friends you encounter on the Journey and you will feel a special belonging to the student body.


1.) Describe the dining arrangements at your school.
The meals are together With everyone at the school and you participate in the making of the Food and cleaning of the dishes. This is a way of understanding all the effort put into the meals and helps you get a perspective in all the effort. You appreciate every meal in a different way after understanding everything behind it. It is also a social and relaxing time With all Your friends.

Social and Town Life:

1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
