Has anyone been a part of the Semester at Sea program? Or know anyone who has?
My son, who is currently a sophomore in college, found out about this program and applied and has been accepted, and now he has to decide if he wants to commit. Putting aside Covid, which makes that a trickier decision now by itself, does anyone have an opinion on whether that would be a good idea or a bad idea? Looking at the website, it seems pretty awesome – spend a semester on a ship, going from port to port, taking classes during the voyage and seeing the world – but of course the website isn’t going to be impartial. I’m wondering if anyone has been through this program, or knows anybody that has, and would like to share their opinion on the experience. Any and all comments are welcome.
