Sometimes we are called to go with the flow and other times to rock the boat! Abigail did it. Esther did it. So did Ruth and Naomi! Why, even Jesus was known to rock the boat from time to time. Christian speaker and author Drexel Gilbert's spirited and interactive presentations will demonstrate the synergy between taking leaps of faith and finding the joy in occasionally shaking things up for the cause of Christ. Come to her sessions prepared to learn, to share, and most of all to laugh and find the fun in building each other up for a more fulfilling walk of faith.

Day 1 January 26 - Tampa, Florida, USA
Depart 4:00 p.m.
Cruise from Tampa, FL and kick off the morning with a café con leche in the historic Cuban-Spanish neighborhood of Ybor City. Then, take the TECO Line Streetcar into the Channel District, where you can explore the Florida Aquarium or the SS American Victory, a World War II era ship turned museum.
Day 2 January 27 - Key West, Florida, USA
Arrive 11:00 a.m. / Depart 5:00 p.m.
The southernmost city in the United States is laid-back, eclectic and brimming with island charm. Discover Key West’s 19th-century character in Old Town, whose leafy streets are lined with Victorian homes, quaint cottages and grand mansions.
Day 3 January 28 - Nassau, Bahamas
Arrive 10:00 a.m. / Depart 8:00 p.m.
Bustling markets and placid beaches are like the yin and yang of this capital of The Bahamas. The Nassau Straw Market, three blocks from the port, presents a riot of vendors, shoppers, and pirates, while the broad white beaches, minutes from town, feature sun-kissed sands, turquoise waters, and coral reefs. In between, there are activities to suit the whole family—observing sharks, swimming with dolphins, and plunging down water slides. Browse the duty-free shops and Nassau Straw Market downtown. You’ll find authentic Cuban cigars and one-of-a-kind artworks. On Paradise Island, across the bridge, shop for couture and upscale brands. Nassau’s culinary bounty emerges from the ocean—dishes like fried snapper served with grits and grouper drizzled with butter. Try conch, the marine mollusk of the iconic shell, presented as conch fritters, conch chowder, cracked conch, and even raw conch in fresh lime juice.
