The 3rd annual Gospel Celebration Cruise a/k/a The Gospel Cruise will be taking place May 17-24, 2009.


May 17 – San Juan, Puerto Rico
San Juan is one of the biggest natural harbors in the Caribbean and is the second oldest city in the Americas. This beautiful city, called “La Ciudad Amurallada,” was founded in 1521. Cobblestone streets, hanging balconies, chapels and many plazas characterize the historic end of the city, while modern amenities and high-rise hotels have sprung up on the more developed beachfront.

May 18 – St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands
It’s the calm turquoise waters of the Caribbean that command attention in St. Thomas — home to both pirates’ legends and tropical fish for centuries.
