Cruise with State Chaplain



Dear Brother Knight,

Several weeks ago, we announced a fundraiser for the Florida K of C Charities Inc.  Vocations Fund, a cruise trip to the Southern Caribbean on Celebrity Beyond, the newest ship of the Celebrity fleet. The trip will be nine nights long, departing on November 13, 2023, from Fort Lauderdale, Florida and stopping at Grand Cayman, Aruba, Curacao, and Bonaire. This trip will give us the opportunity to join in the celebration of the 25th priesthood ordination anniversary of our State Chaplain and Pastor of St Agnes Catholic Church in Naples, FL, Fr. Bob Kantor, and include several Masses onboard with him.

There has been a lot of interest about this cruise and Celebrity Cruise Lines has come back to the travel agent handling the cruise for the Florida K of C Charities, Inc. with some term improvements, such as:

  • Extended the date for the Early Bookings from May 16 to May 30, 2023, which will result in an On-Board-Credit being given to each passenger in the cabin.
  • Extended the date for the guaranteed group rates until June 16, 2023, which will result in a price reduction and additional On-Board-Credits being given to each passenger in the cabin.

The trip includes a good number of amenities and activities, with plenty of opportunities to relax, explore, and make new friends. We have also arranged for special group rates, making this an affordable way to enjoy a luxurious vacation. Click Cruise Details to get all the information and to reserve your spot to enjoy this great cruise.  If you have any questions regarding the cruise, please contact H & E Smart Travels, Inc. 

Additionally, H & E Smart Travels, Inc. will be at the upcoming Florida State Council annual meeting to answer questions, take orders and process your deposits for this great cruise.

Your participation in this fundraiser will make a significant difference in the lives of those we serve, and we thank you for your support. Please share this letter and its purpose with the members of your Council, Assembly, and your Council-sponsored Columbiettes Council.
