To know God and to make Him known.

Classical Conversations Capstone Cruise

Galveston, TX April 26th - May 1st, 2021
Port Canaveral, FL May 10th-May 14th, 2021

Come Sail with Your Crew!

2021 is the year for you to come and join Classical Conversations’ Capstone Cruise!

The Capstone Cruise is the largest annual gathering of CC families from around the country. Classical Conversations’ Capstone Cruise is for all our community members, not just graduates, competitors, and their families. In fact, last year we had almost 900 people from around the country planning to join us before the coronavirus pandemic shut down, not just our cruise, but all cruises at that time.

In 2019, families with Foundations-age students enjoyed meeting other Classical Conversations students from around the country. Challenge-age students enjoyed nightly activities, a special Protocol Dinner, and a dance. Graduates enjoyed nightly activities, Protocol, the dance, and a sail and snorkel excursion sponsored by Thrivent Federal Credit Union on a privately chartered catamaran. Parents enjoyed nightly chats poolside with other classically educating parents, special insights into Leigh Bortins’ new math program, and panel discussions regarding classical education through the college years with representatives from New Saint Andrews College. Additionally, moms were able to enjoy morning Bible study time, special gift exchanges, and a craft night sponsored by Thrivent.

The 2021 Capstone Cruise team is already busy planning fun activities for your entire family. We can’t wait for you join us!

In order to participate in Classical Conversations’ Capstone cruise, to keep the cost low, and to ensure our group is 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 nonrefundable, Internet special fee). All fees go directly to the price of the cruise. There is an additional $25 per person fee for commemorative T-shirts, lanyards, and beach bags that is already included in the cruise fare.
