We went on this tour because of the destination, but were pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed the Big Ten activities and loved meeting so many people from the U of I.

I have taken many cruises, and I rank this Mediterranean cruise as number one. I look forward to traveling with the Illinois EXPLORERS in the future.

The whole experience could not have been better. We always love going on Oceania.
