The Stars

Seeing the stars from a darkened ship at sea is something everyone who loves the sky or cruise ship guests should experience at least once in their lives. During the cruises the author has been on as a lecturer, when the weather permits – and this is a big factor for both visibility and safety reasons – I have had guests attend my “At Sea under the Stars” presentation. This is a chance for guests to see the stars on a darkened ship at sea and learn about them and their influence on navigation, culture and civilization in general. This is always touted as a highlight during the cruise by those that attend.
