During our 10th Cruise to the Caribbean, last May, we polled everyone with the goal to decide on where the next School4Santas cruise should go.

While at sea, we had two days of school and even a special side meeting of just the wives and Mrs. Claus.    And we also had many who could not go on this cruise and suggested Alaska for our next cruise. 

The result of our discussions was that we agreed it is time to return and host the 2019 school in Alaska.  So, it’s “North to Alaska!”

Santas in Class

While on board, each morning when we are at sea, we will have a full School4Santas, broken down into three mornings. Included in the school will be a Santa Claus Oath Ceremony and a Graduation ceremony with presentation of personalized diplomas. This will take place on the final day of the school, as we head to our final stop in Vancouver.
There is no cost for you to attend this school if you book directly with our Cruise Coordiantor, Suesie Toole.  And because the wives have requested it, there will also be a special program of meetings and activities, just for the Mrs. Claus and wives.  

This will be our third Alaska cruise and this time we are starting with the land tour, starting in Fairbanks.  And while in Fairbanks we will take a little side trip the the North Pole and the Santa Claus House.  

The discussions also covered other future curises.  We agreed that we should try to schedule the 2020 Cruise to the Mediterrean, with stops in Italy and Greece.  But that will take more time to schedule.
The cruise will be aboard one of the newest Princess ships, the Royal Princess.

Princess is currently offering their “Sip and Sale” promotion  with FREE “All-inclusive Beverage Package” when booking a balcony or above Plus, FREE “Unlimited Soda & More” Package for additional guests in your stateroom.
