My only regret is that I didn't go more than once!

Why wouldn’t you take advantage of the opportunity to go on vacation AND get college credit for it? As someone who didn’t previously travel much prior to the trip, going on the cruise taught me about preparation, airport navigation, travel safety, exploring foreign countries, new adventures, and much more. Not only did I learn so much and have a wonderful time, I made lifelong memories with classmates that I may not have created in another environment.
