March 28 Guest Topic: Cruises tailored to the blind

Hawaiian Ocean View at TwlightPhotograph taken on deck of the Norwegian Cruise Line Pride of America cruise ship in Hawaii. The sun is out of frame on the left and nearly set, painting the deck with orange. It is reflected on the right side of the photo in a large series of deck windows, which have deck lights above them. The orange wooden deck is in the center, stretching from the foreground to the back as it wraps around the ship, with a railing and ocean on the left side. Photographed by Ted Boardman, Secretary, Heartland ACB.

If you’ve thought about traveling for pleasure and are blind or have low vision, or know someone who does, this talk should interest you.

Mr. Terry Horvath knows about arranging travel for the blind. Terry Horvath and his wife Patricia run Best Cruises travel agency. They have been in the travel business for 17 years. Mr. Horvath has arranged cruises for blind travelers doing his best to keep the cost low. He uses volunteers so that blind travelers do not have to bring a sighted person with them. Mr. Horvath has been a vendor at the last five American Council of the Blind conventions. He will be speaking to us via Skype and there will be plenty of time for your questions.

We will be meeting in room 2A in the Monroe County Public Library at 6:30 p.m. for refreshments and then get started at 7 p.m.

Please share this with anyone who might be interested in learning about this topic.
