Baltic Sea Cruise
“Khrushchev and Walesa talks were the highlight of the trip. I enjoyed meeting like-minded people in a small ship setting.” – Joan Fudala, AZ
“There are too many highlights to mention. The ship itself is one highlight. The two main speakers were also highlights and several other lecturers were thoughtful and good speakers.” – Jean Worley, PA
