Spotlight on Public Broadcasting
Experience the best of public broadcasting aboard the #1 cruise line in the world.
After spectacular voyages around the globe, Artful Travelers brings its signature celebration of the very best of American public broadcasting back to the luxurious Seven Seas Mariner. Travel the fascinating Panama Canal – and visit ports in Curacao, Ecuador, Colombia and Peru — with some of public broadcasting's most admired personalities.
Supporters and friends of PBS and NPR will gather to celebrate the programming of NOVA - the highest-rated science series on television and the most-watched documentary series on public television. The program is one of television's most acclaimed series, having won every major television award, most of them many times over. Participate in fascinating seminars, panel discussions, Q&A sessions, dinners, and receptions with some of the country's most respected authorities on science – and join other invited authorities in the fields of politics, current events, and culture during this enlightening journey.
