Twice the Fun! A 7-day Caribbean handbell cruise in 2015

Participants in Cruise X: Winter 2009 with David Harris, clinician

Join Bells of the Cascades Jan. 4–11, 2015, as we sail Holland America ms Eurodam from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, through the blue waters of the Caribbean to the ports of Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos; San Juan, Puerto Rico; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; and the private island Half Moon Cay, Bahamas.

The days we’re not in port, you’ll be making music with two distinguished and well-known, handbell clinicians, Stephanie Wiltse from Grand Rapids, Michigan and Michael J. Glasgow from Raleigh, North Carolina. Your evenings aboard the ship will be free for mingling with your fellow bell ringers and other passengers, enjoying the on-board entertainment, and of course, doing what cruises are known for … eating!
