Classical Conversations Capstone Cruise

April 28, 2019 to May 2, 2019

Come Sail with Your Crew!

Announcing the 2019 Capstone Cruise to the Bahamas!

Classical Conversation’s Capstone cruise is for all our community members- not just graduates, math and memory competitors, and their families. According to the 350+ travelers that joined us last year, what you’ll really love are the CONVERSATIONS with other home schooling families from all over the United States who also choose to educate their children classically.

All CC families are invited to celebrate the hard work of other homeschooling parents during the CC Capstone Graduation Ceremony. Younger students may be inspired by witnessing the National Memory Master Competition and the National Number Knockout Competition. You are cordially invited to attend these events!

Your family will enjoy shipboard activities and unlimited, delicious food for one low price. Finally! Your growing kids can eat all they want while you lounge nearby! We will eat, dance, swim, and karaoke together. You won’t want to miss the early morning book club discussion or the late-night poolside chats as we solve the world’s problems.

To keep the cost low and our group well connected onboard, you MUST book your cruise through our cruise agent and CC mom extraordinaire Amy True. We have the lowest available fee (other than Carnival’s non-refundable, Internet Special fee). All fees go directly to the price of the cruise, and to be a participant in the Capstone Cruise your must book through Amy True. There is an additional $15 per person fee for commemorative t-shirts, lanyards, beach bags, and bracelets, which is already included in the cruise fare. For graduates, all caps, gowns, and diplomas are included in this year’s price.
