We still remember so fondly your lectures on our cruise from Beijing to Singapore! We have since done many more cruises and have yet to find a lecturer of your calibre.  

We speak often of how much we loved your lectures and the reference list of books and movies you provided. 

Denny and Lark Beaugureau

--------------------------------------------------------------

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.

Dear Dr. Freedman,

Just to let you know how much I am enjoying your lectures on Vietnam. This is my first opportunity to see Vietnam up close. My only previous exposure was patrolling off the coast in 1963, compliments of the US Navy. I'm looking forward to more of your very interesting and informative lectures. Thank you for enriching my Southeast Asia cruise.

- MW, Viking Orion

Awesome, Dude! Thanks for teaching me with humor and quality and quantity education! So important, fascinating and HELPFUL 

during my journey through Cuba. I loved your lecture series- obviously you know your stuff! You rock.

We had the BEST lecturer ever on our recent cruise on the Orion - Dr. John Freedman! His lectures were standing room only, not to be missed. 

-Posted by NanciEA, on Cruise Critic, May 20,2019

-------------------------------

Agree about Dr. Freedman. We were on the Bangkok to Hong Kong segment and all of his lectures 

were filled to capacity. He is simply the best.

Dear Dr. Freedman,
I attended your lectures on our cruise of the Iberian Peninsula and I would like to tell you how much I enjoyed them. Your lectures added a deeper dimension to our entire journey. I hope I shall have the opportunity 
to be present on future occasions when 
you will be the speaker on historical subjects. 
Sincerely,
YY, Oceania Riviera Iberian cruise
