Alaska Scripture Cruise 2009: 7/29 - 8/5


Dear Friends:

It has been a long time since we originally announced The Great Adventure Alaskan Scripture Cruise in July 2009, but we are happy to report that everything now set to go! Dr. Tim Gray and his family will be joining our family for this Seminar at Sea. All the necessary information is on our website Please visit it today to make your reservation!

Of all the vacations that our family has taken, it is unanimous that cruises are our favorite. Alaska is a breath-taking vacation spot with pleasant weather and amazing wildlife. Everyone will enjoy the scenery and with the many excursion options, each port of call will have something for everyone be it shopping, leisurely scenic walks or vigorous trips into the wild. Cruising is a great way for families to spend a vacation (because mom doesn't have to cook or clean!) and the children will have plenty to do on board.

During the at-sea portion of the cruise we will be offering the Seminar at Sea with teaching sessions brought to you by The Great Adventure. We will have "Sailing with the Psalms" for adults by Jeff and Tim, "The Book of Matthew" for teens by Fr. Mike Schmitz and "The Great Adventure Kids" for children by Emily Cavins and Kirstin Rau. What makes this cruise extra special is the opportunity to attend Mass daily.

Many details can be found on the website such as information about the Holland America ship, an itinerary, the pricing, and a description of the speakers and seminars. We are delighted to have Kelly Wahlquist serving as hostess of the cruise, so please be in touch with her if you have questions. Her email is

We hope you are able to join us for this vacation that will refresh you body and soul.

God Bless--

Jeff and Emily Cavins
