The Semester at Sea Lifelong Learning Program provides adult learners, who are 30 years of age or older, with an opportunity to see the world in an academic community.
Lifelong Learners add a valuable generational element to the shipboard community. They are retirees, professionals on leave, or simply adventurous travelers who desire to study with bright, enthusiastic undergraduate students from around the world.

Lifelong Learners can informally sign up to participate in courses on the ship taught by world-renowned faculty. Further your education by engaging with students in courses such as psychology, oceanography, communications and media studies, tourism and hospitality, and much more.
Lifelong Learners, faculty, staff and students have the unique opportunity to join the “Extended Family Program” on each voyage. The program allows Lifelong Learners to “adopt” a group of students, with the intent of serving as mentors, providing support and establishing an extended family on the ship. The Extended Family “parents” create, organize, and initiate “family activities,” such as game nights, family meals, or other activities and celebrations.
