It was, indeed, our pleasure to be able to sit in on your most interesting and informative lectures. As one prepares to visit a foreign country, knowledge of its history, customs, and traditions can make a significant difference in what an individual gets out of their visit. My wife, Missy, and I look forward to hearing more of your lectures on future cruises.

Very respectfully,

Marv Pixton, Colonel, US Marine Corps, Ret.

You are an inspiring teacher!  We continue to talk about the quality of your lectures on board. Several of us would love to seek out another cruise that you participate on.

Thank you and we look forward to the next time!
