Every person has an inbuilt need for hope and purpose in life. Our volunteer crew seeks to share hope by their service on board as a community focused on the needs of others. They offer hope through their unity in diversity, their actions and their interaction with others. Our faith is the foundation for our service, and every crewmember has a story to tell of a transformation in their personal life that has given them hope and purpose. The ship community desires to live out this message of hope in the ports visited and this is done with greatest respect for and sensitivity towards the culture of the community hosting the ship.
