2021 Panama Canal Quilt Cruise

Dear quilters and friends,

2021 brings us an exciting opportunity to experience the Panama Canal! We'll sail on Holland America Line's beautiful ms Zuiderdam, departing from sunny Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

We will visit some beautiful ports in the Caribbean, Central and South America. You will also be privileged to see one of the world's greatest engineering marvels with a partial transit of the Panama Canal! It's an amazing accomplishment and sure to take your breath away. What a great way to take a break from everyday life while enjoying 5-star service and the company of fellow quilters.

Quilting and "sewcializing"

You'll be part of a warm group of fun-loving people who share a common interest in quilting. You'll have the pleasure of making new friends, one quilter at a time! "Sewcial" activities include a "Welcome Aboard" party, a Challenge Block contest and a Show & Tell at the "farewell" party. You will also have the opportunity to perfect your quilting skills. There are a wide variety of classes from which to choose, taught by three award-winning instructors in the world of quilting: Gyleen X. Fitzgerald, Cindy Walter and Jeanette Walton. Sewing machines will be available for your use on board. You will even have the chance to purchase a new machine at a great price!

For all of you that have sailed with us before – welcome back! For those of you that are new to the fabulous experience of quilting at sea, we look forward to getting to know you and creating lasting memories.

Hurry, hurry, step right up!

This trip will sell out fast, so book early! We have had a list of quilters interested in booking this trip even before it was organized. Bring a friend, your spouse or your family – non-quilters are always welcome to join us and will have many activities to pursue while you are in class.

We can't wait to see you on board the ms Zuiderdam!

Best wishes,
Gyleen X. Fitzgerald, Cindy Walter and Jeanette Walton
