Western Caribbean Cruise for UNOH Students

Posted on Wednesday, April 06, 2016

Twenty University of Northwestern Ohio Travel and Hotel Management students and three chaperones leave April 20, 2016, for a four-day Western Caribbean Cruise.  The Carnival “Sensation” leaves Miami, Florida on the afternoon of April 21st with port stops at Key West, Florida and Cozumel, Mexico, including one full day at sea. The cruise will return to port in Miami, Florida on the morning of April 25th

Prior to the trip, students were informed on the logistics associated with the cruise experience including the process of gaining a passport, traveling to and from the dock, security with traveling, experiences and “things-to-do” on the cruise, site seeing and more.

The cruise is included in the curriculum for students pursuing an associate’s degree in Travel and Hotel Management.  The trip is designed for students to get a real-world experience of a cruise so that upon graduation, if they need to plan a cruise for future clients, they will be well prepared. Being able to experience a cruise first-hand will give the students a certain level of understanding about what their clients will be looking for when booking a cruise.

Following completion of their associate’s degree, students can opt to pursue a Baccalaureate degree at the University of Northwestern Ohio in Specialized Studies.
