Come and experience a vacation with a purpose!

This 6-day cruise will be a time of fellowship, connections, togetherness and spiritual growth as you travel on the beautiful Royal Caribbean Empress of the Seas with members and guest of First Baptist Church Port Charlotte.

While enjoying all the amazing amenities offered on the cruise ship we will have dedicated times of devotions, mission testimonies and training, and for an additional fee noted below, the option to participate on custom shore excursions for only our group that will be a blessing to local believers and like faith organizations.

Our first port of call is Havana, Cuba! If you choose to participate on the excursion you will have the opportunity to spend time with local believers and be a blessing to them, enjoy a local lunch and see some of the sites of Havana, Cuba in the comfort of our own private tour bus. Our next day is a relaxing day at sea where you have the option in the morning for a time of group devotions and in the evening a time of teaching. Our next port of call is Royal Caribbean’s private resort at Labadie, Haiti where you can enjoy the beach, snorkeling and other water activities or purchase excursions through Royal Caribbean such as zip lining and jet ski rentals! We have one more day at sea before arriving in Nassau, Bahamas. You can also be a part of another custom excursion to the Ranfurly Homes for Children. The Ranfurly Homes for Children is a place of refuge and love and there will be a coordinated time for us to bless them as needed. Lunch again will be included and a time to experience true Bahamian culture and friendships.
