Semester at Sea®
In the Spring of
1987, I travelled around the world on the SS Universe as
a part of the SAS program, an experience which changed my life in no
- I visited the Bahamas, Spain, (the then) Yugoslavia,
then) USSR, Turkey, Egypt, India, Malaysia, the Philippines, Hong Kong,
China, Taiwan, and Japan.
- I met, fell in love, and ultimately married Amy S. Martin.
- And more recently, I have become active in the PNW alumni chapter,
which has given me the opportunity to revisit the ship as each Fall
voyage prepares to sail from Vancouver, and as each Spring voyage
concludes in Seattle.
