Genealogy Cruise with the Smiths, Eastman and Donna Moughty

NOTE from DearMYRTLE: The following was received from our genea-friends Gary and Diana Smith.

We now have our 3rd Winter Genealogy Getaway scheduled. 

Dick Eastman
We will be traveling with CruiseEverything again, on the lovely Celebrity Silhouette, with our friends Dick Eastman and Donna Moughty, 26 February to 5 March 2017. 
Full details are available on the CruiseEverything website at

There is a new video about the genealogy cruises, and a link to a few pictures from the past, plus, of course, a link to the upcoming cruise.  Check it out!
Donna Moughty
As before, we are planning a wide range of genealogy activities. We will have presentations and some group sessions in private meeting rooms, one-on-one consultation opportunities, and lots of networking available. There will be genealogy activities every day at sea, plus a few optional opportunities in port, should you choose to stay on board. The topics will be announced soon.

The Silhouette is a lovely 5-star ship, and Celebrity treats us very well. We will:
  • Leave Fort Lauderdale on Sunday afternoon.
  • Monday and Tuesday morning we will be at sea.
  • Tuesday afternoon we’ll arrive in San Juan, Puerto Rico. 
  • Wednesday we’ll spend the day in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
  • Thursday in Phillipsburg, St. Maarten.
  • Friday and Saturday we'll spend all day at sea.
  • Arrive back in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday morning.  
This will give us plenty of time for genealogy, networking, shipboard activities, and sightseeing in the ports.

Any questions, contact Herb at CruiseEverything (239)275-1717 for more details.  Celebrity has offered some early booking amenities (shipboard credit, basic beverage package, in-cabin internet access, or prepaid gratuities) available until the end of October.  The deposit to hold your space is $250 per person, with final payment due 1 December 2016.

We look forward to seeing you again.  Any questions on the genealogy portion of the trip, contact us at
