Here is what our 2017 cruisers said:

“I enjoyed meeting new Statler family, spending more time with prior friends, and being around like-minded folks!”

“We were treated like super stars. Thank you! I just had a great time [and] couldn't have asked for more.”

“I learned so much from all the classes I attended. Having classes encompassing a wide range of topics on the cruise helped me consolidate my quilting experiences. Thank you for putting on a great cruise!”
