The 113-day Grand World Voyage on the MS Amsterdam will visit everywhere from Australia to Africa and one of the world’s most famous icons is to speak on-board! Archbishop Desmond Tutu, one of the greatest living moral icons of our time, will be holding a lecture during part of the voyage. The Nobel Peace Prize recipient will be sailing on the Amsterdam from March 28 to April 2, 2014 from Durban to Cape Town, South Africa.
Tutu is the recipient of groundbreaking awards. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, the Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism in 1986, the Pacem in Terris Award in 1987, the Sydney Peace Prize in 1999, the Gandhi Peace Prize in 2007, and the United States’ Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.
The former Archbishop of Cape Town will be speaking on two separate occasions. During one, he will speak about his role as the first Black African to serve as archbishop of Cape Town, and for the second he’ll talk about his work forging racial equality throughout the world. Both lectures will include a question-and-answer session with guests.
The around-the-world cruise is open to guests who wish to take the entire cruise, or prefer to sail on specific segments that range from 20 to 86 days. Rates for segments begin from $3,899 per person, double occupancy. The full voyage begins at $19,999 per person.
