In The Caribbean with

Sandy Cares

Don’t walk down the gangplank!  

That is, until after you hear Sandy Cares talk about the ports of call.  With captivating historical perspectives and fascinating surprises, Sandy brings the past alive as she puts the destinations along the itinerary in a meaningful historical and cultural context.

Sandy has presented well over 750 times to cruise guests on Oceania and Regent Seven Seas Vessels, examining the cultural history of the ports of call.  Sandy holds a history degree from the University of Michigan and a Master’s in teaching Latin and studied at the American Academy in Rome.  A Distinguished Toastmaster, she is two-time former president of Michigan's oldest chapter.

In 2013 she began lecturing on cruise ships with a series of destination talks based on the literature of the Caribbean.  Today she offers upwards of 80 titles that encompass culture, history, and port-specific information covering the greater Caribbean basin, Central America and the Maya sites, Panama Canal, Amazon River, Cuba and New England.  All Sandy's works are original, creatively blending her fresh research ideas with her signature presentation style.

Unique in the world of ship lectures, Sandy's lusciously illustrated and unscripted conversations are informative, accessible and relevant so guests enjoy more value for their time spent on shore.
