Interested in going to World Youth Day? Please let us know!

I’ve heard some groups talking about taking a cruise. Is there a cruise option?

We absolutely love cruising, but no, there will not be a cruise option for World Youth Day Panama. Here’s why:

  • Cruise lines require significant guarantees well ahead of time.
  • This means groups would have to guarantee (with cash in hand) well ahead of the usual date.
  • If you do not meet the minimum, you chance losing the ship.
  • If the ship is lost, what is Plan B for getting to World Youth Day? This is the major concern.
  • Time is also of the essence since schools will be in session in the USA in late January.
