“Wesleyan on the Waves” Will Set Sail June 3, 2018, to the Eastern Caribbean

Owensboro, Ky. (May 1, 2017) – Kentucky Wesleyan College is pleased to introduce “Wesleyan on the Waves,” a Wesleyan-themed cruise vacation for alumni and friends setting sail June 3, 2018, from Orlando (Port Canaveral), Fla.  The cruise will be a seven-night sailing adventure aboard Royal Caribbean’s world-renowned Oasis of the Seas, with stops in Philipsburg, St. Maarten, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Labadee, Haiti.

“This is a first-of-its-kind event for our College, offering an opportunity to host a reunion at sea and connect alumni and friends of Wesleyan in a fun vacation environment,” said Eddie Kenny, senior director of alumni relations.  “While specific Wesleyan-focused events will be offered onboard, families and friends will be able to travel at their leisure and make this a vacation to remember.”

Guests will enjoy seven nights aboard the Oasis of the Seas, a $50 onboard credit per guest and exclusive events while at sea for guests traveling with Kentucky Wesleyan.   The Oasis of the Seas offers 25 dining options and seven distinct neighborhoods built for the ultimate cruise experience. From zipline thrills and FlowRider® surfing to the largest spa at sea, along with four pools, 10 whirlpools, a 3-D movie theater, Sports Zone, and Casino Royale, Oasis of the Seas offers something for everyone.

“Kentucky Wesleyan College is pleased to continue building its outreach to alumni and our ‘Wesleyan on the Waves’ cruise is another outstanding opportunity to do just that,” said Kentucky Wesleyan College President Barton D. Darrell ’84.  “We anticipate this cruise will bring together alumni from across the years, and across the country, along with their families, to create a first-of-its-kind Kentucky Wesleyan travel experience.”
