It's safe to say that she has certainly earned a vacation - time to be surrounded by family and friends, reconnecting with them while she recharges her spirit. Of course, Sandi, being who she is, has decided to share her special vacation time with those who love the Lord and the music about Him just as much as she does - you!
From Febuary 23 to March 2, 2014, Sandi Patty will be joining with Inspiration Cruises & Tours to journey to the Western Caribbean on Holland America's MS Nieuw Amsterdam. Cruisers will spend a wonderful eight hours at Half Moon Cay, Holland America's own private island in the Bahamas. From there, they will travel on to Georgetown in the Cayman Islands where they can spend the day snorkeling, shopping or visiting the turtle farm on Seven Mile Beach. The next stop, Cozumel, Mexico, offers coral reefs that are home to hundreds of exotic fish. Then there is Key West, home to Ernest Hemingway and some of the most gorgeous sunsets in the world.
In case the stunning scenery, the amazing food found on all of the Holland America ships and sense of family isn't enough to entice you, there's more! Comedian Anita Renfroe, 12-time Dove Award winner Larnelle Harris, 7-time Dove Award winners Selah, singer/songwriter Wayne Watson, speaker/author Angie Smith, speaker/singer Sheila Walsh and Pastor Jim Lyon will also be there, sharing powerful stories and songs. And for those of you who sing, there is one more big treat. Next year will be the 30th anniversary of Sandi and Larnelle's award-winning hit, "More Than Wonderful." To celebrate that milestone, they are re-recording the song with a special 250-member choir made up of fellow cruisers. Those participating in the "choir track" will receive a free souvenir edition of the recording, sing in an on-board concert with Sandi and Larnelle and have the opportunity to attend special workshops for choir members, praise team members and church music directors.
Prices range from $868 to $2598 per person.
