Sandy Cares

Oceania Enrichment Lecturer

Sandy's shipboard talks reveal fascinating aspects of the Caribbean region’s cultural history, always with fresh and surprising twists.  Through her original research she uncovers lost stories that help frame contemporary Caribbean society against a meaningful historical backdrop.  Sandy offers over eighty captivating lecture titles on all the Caribbean ports-of-call, Central America, Maya world, the Amazon River and Panama Canal. She also lectures on cruises to New England and Atlantic Canada as well as transatlantic cruises.  These days most of her time is spent on Oceania's ultra-luxury vessels circumnavigating Cuba.


In March of 2017, Sandy was selected to present Oceania’s first lectures on Cuba for the cruise line’s inaugural sail into Havana.  She has introduced thousands of Americans to Cuban ports-of-call.  She regularly is the featured onboard entertainment on sail-away nights to Havana with her informative and memorable orientation presentations.


Sandy's talks are fresh, unscripted, and packed with knowledge, information and advice to lend the most value from time spent ashore. Lusciously illustrated and graced with her inimitable sense of humor, Sandy's talks feel like sparkling conversation with friends.  For private speaking engagements, write Sandy Cares at sandy.cares@aol.com.
