Since I haven’t shared enough photos of the experience (ha), I thought I’d leave you with a couple behind-the-scenes glimpses of my favorite people and moments on board in hopes that it will convince you, too, to go on a future voyage.
And, of course, there is one person who will be going on the ship this December—with a guest!—for 25 days, courtesy of Institute for Shipboard Education and my recent five-year anniversary giveaway. That person is…
#117 Amy Weinstein!
(Silly me thought it would be more “authentic” to tally all the results by hand, so rather than using Rafflecopter, I (naively) went through every entry to verify that each person did what they said they would, threw out duplicate submissions and logged all of them into an Excel spreadsheet in the order they were submitted. There were a total of 919 eligible entries. I’m not going to lie, it took the better part of two days! Next time, I’m totally taking the easy route and using Rafflecopter.)
Congratulations, Amy! I’m glad you’ll get to return to your previous home. I’ll contact you soon with how to redeem your prize.
Disclosure: I have not ever been compensated in any way, shape, or form to write any Enrichment Voyages or Semester at Sea posts—or run this giveaway. I do it all for pure love of the program and will continue to do so as long as I’m involved with ISE! Just so we’re all clear here.
