One of our favorite places on social media is our “We Love Christian Travel” group on Facebook, where past (and future) Inspiration Cruises & Tours travelers share their favorite moments and memories. From time to time, these friends return from their travels eager to share photos. 

We’ve collected some of them in this photo blog, showing the wide range of faith, fun and fellowship experiences we enjoy while visiting some of the most beautiful settings in the world. We are thankful to all our friends and social media followers for sharing their moments with us!

Incredible Entertainment

Our exceptional travel experiences highlight some of the biggest names in Christian music. Inspiration passengers enjoy full concerts from these award-winning artists on almost every night of their luxury cruise or tour.

Transformational Teaching

Some of the most beloved Christian pastors, authors and teachers host our cruises and tours. They teach about the life of Jesus in Israel and inspire passengers in the most beautiful parts of the world, including Alaska and the Caribbean. These leaders add a deep spiritual element to an incredible travel experience.

Landscapes

Worshiping on the calm waters of the Sea of Galilee captivates our travelers and gives them an unforgettable memory to cherish for years to come. “It was a very emotional experience for me and one I will cherish always,” says Inspiration travelers Doris W. Whether it’s the glaciers of Alaska or the beautiful shores of Israel’s Sea of Galilee, discover some of the most stunning landscapes on earth.

Cruises are one of the best ways to experience Alaska, giving passengers an up-close-and-personal view of the wonder and grandeur of God’s creation. “At the glacier, everyone went out on the deck and sang ‘How Great Thou Art.’ As it was ending, the glacier cracked, and a huge section fell into the water. What a moment!” —Kathy W

Friends and Loved Ones

Whether reconnecting with family and friends or experiencing new places as a couple, traveling with loved ones is an ideal way to deepen relationships. Christian travel with Inspiration is filled with faith-focused people. You’ll forge new friendships and strengthen existing relationships.

Imagine sharing unforgettable moments with loved ones and new friends. Conversations over coffee and meals are some of our travelers’ most treasured moments. Statistics also show that relationships last longer among couples who travel together.

New adventures and experiences can deepen relationships. Our cruises and tours offer plenty of these opportunities for families, couples, friends and soon-to-be friends for the many who join us traveling solo.

Food 

Trying new foods is one of the joys of traveling. Our cruises and tours offer plenty of opportunities to sample the freshest local cuisine. Whether on a shore excursion or at the dining table, you’ll be surrounded by travelers who share your love for new flavors and scrumptious meals.

Local seafood is always on the menu in Alaska, which makes it a paradise for foodies. After a day in port, our passengers return to the cruise ship raving about the restaurants they visited.

The joys of cruise travel aren’t limited to the luxurious accommodations or the scenic views. The delicious meals are a major part of the experience and a great opportunity to sample new cuisine.

Wildlife

Whether it’s colorful fish populating a Caribbean reef, moose, grizzly bears or humpback whales in Alaska, our travelers have countless options to witness the wildest residents of God’s creation. Alaska is wonderful for wildlife watching—especially from the cruise ship!
