Pros of choosing a study cruise

What do you like about exploring by ship vs. land adventures?

  • When I was on my second RS program, a service program in South Dakota, we went to a site where dozens of huge tour buses were disgorging hundreds of tourists. The thought of spending my days on a crowded bus does not appeal to me. Cruise programs may involve some bussing around, of course, so you can visit local sites, but I have no desire to sign up for a bus tour. I'd probably fall asleep during much of the trip, and that's a pretty expensive nap.
    I chose the Peru Amazon riverboat tour over a comparable but less expensive nature tour in Costa Rica because the latter involved hours of travel by bus.
  • I couldn't agree more--unpack once, sleep in the same bed every night (except for beginning/ending hotel stays), let the bus take you short on short hops to sight-see. Great meals, everybody is friendly and helpful, and there are lots of good educational activities aboard and on shore.
