TRIP DETAILS

WHO: ALL homeschool, private, public school students & their friends & family! All reservations must have at least one school-aged student in their party. We frequently have aunts, uncles and grandparents travel with us too! Don’t forget to let us know your special occasions and we’ll help you celebrate!

WHAT: 3rd Annual FTRU Family Cruise

Every year we mix things up changing ports and ships to keep things fun! This year we are sailing Royal Caribbean’s newly updated “Mariner of the Seas.” We went to scope out the upgrades over the summer and we are excited to name this ship for our third FTRU sailing. The Mariner provides RCL quality offerings for all ages while maintaining a more intimate feel than some of their larger ships. Our departure port will be Port Canaveral (Orlando), Florida! At only four nights, you will have time to enjoy any of the famous Orlando theme parks. (Email us to add on to your booking.)

We are even throwing in up to a $100 onboard credit per cabin for qualified bookings!

All of our planning services are FREE and no cost to you our fans! See why FTRU is Alabama’s favorite, longest-running Field Trip Planning Resource!

-Sail with us and experience why Multi-Generational travel is HOT right now. (Family Time is at the top of everyone’s “to-do” list!)

-Put our experience to work for you & let FTRU handle your Spring Break this year!
