Take a cruise with the chaplain

A journey of discovery

Whether the ship is headed for the North Cape, anchored near Naples, or at Santorini, the ship’s chaplain is always on duty. She keeps her ears open for anyone eager to have a conversation, because in the calm of vacation, or at least some distance from everyday routine, and surrounded by vast oceans, existential themes come to the surface.
In 19 brief and often humorous essays, the chaplain lets us peek over her shoulder as she goes about her varied activities on board and on land, without being indiscreet. We learn about longings and grief, companionship, immense gratitude, and traveling viruses. And how the Filipino crew experienced an unforgettable Pentecost celebration.

  • Insights into the work of a ship chaplain
  • A must for anyone traveling!
  • Includes enticing photos of the glistening sea, white foam, and colorful flags
