Onboard Enrichment

One of the benefits of small ship cruising is the ability to carefully build an extensive onboard enrichment program that seamlessly complements every region we visit.

Regionally Inspired Entertainers and Experts

Regionally Inspired Entertainers and Experts

Carefully selected onboard experts with knowledge in and passion for American history, ecology, and culture join us on each of our cruises. Their informal presentations, open discussions, and activities bring each region to life. They are available throughout each day to add context to your journey and will also attend shore excursions to give our guests behind-the-scenes insight into some of America’s most treasured destinations.

Nightly entertainment ranges from interactive lectures to live musical performances in one of the ships’ inviting lounges. Resident entertainers provide light music in the afternoon, while local musicians join us in the evening to perform music born along America’s legendary rivers and waterways.

There are also a variety of onboard activities scheduled throughout the day, depending on the itinerary, including Art Classes, App-titude Classes (Tech Made Easy), Cooking Demonstrations, Fitness, Trivia, and more.
