Crystal Plans New Classes for 07 World Cruise

Crystal Cruises plans several innovative new enrichment programs for the 2007 World Cruise, including an expansion of the Computer [email protected] program. Now, the curriculum will expand with college level courses taught by a college professor; completing all seven will give guests on the full World Cruise the equivalent of a three-unit college course. Guests on segments will get continuing education credits. Courses include The Components of the System Unit, Computer Storage Devices, Database Management, and Privacy and Ethics. In addition, the line is taking its Yamaha keyboard lessons to another level, with a new Yamaha Master Class, with more personalized course instruction. There will be a new Memoir Writing course taught by journalist Joe Kita, designed to allow World Cruise guests to leave the cruise not just with a diary, but also with a lasting legacy for their family and friends. In addition, a new 2007 Odyssey Masterpiece Art Program will allow guests to create a piece of art for each segment; new for 2007 will be a jewelry-making segment featuring stones and materials indigenous to the ports visited. There will also be Repertory Theatre and Sea Acting Workshops. Visit [].
