  • Are you able to lecture on a specific destination? Our Destination Lecturers range from specialists on the Panama Canal to the Mediterranean. Whatever your destination lecturing specialty, we have a position available for you.

    A Destination Speaker’s responsibility is to give a series of original presentations illustrating the culture and history of the ports of call on a given cruise itinerary. For instance, a Speaker on a cruise to Mexico may discuss the Mexican-American War, foreign policy between the United States and Mexico, or the culture of the country. The talks should not be a reiteration of what to see-and-do in Puerto Vallarta. Rather, they should provide the guests with insight into the ports that one would not be able to find in an average guidebook.

    Destination Speakers who are placed by Sixth Star are offered the luxuries of a fine voyage in a passenger stateroom with full passenger privileges in exchange for their services and a small administrative fee of $65 per day for each day of the cruise. This fee covers the costs associated with application processing, interviewing, correspondence on behalf of the cruise lines, form completions and all other steps necessary to complete your cruise placement. Included with your per night fee, we welcome you to bring one companion to sail in the same stateroom at no additional charge. Please note that the daily fee for Regent Seven Seas Cruises is $100 per day due to the all inclusive nature of these ultra-luxurious voyages (gratuities included, etc.).

    During a typical week at sea, Speakers traditionally deliver three to four 35-minute presentations, with 10 minutes at the end for questions and answers. Presentations should be very entertaining (or as we like to say, “edu-tainment”), and we highly encourage the use of professional presentation tools, including slides and Power Point presentations.

    The Destination Speaker must have strong credentials and be an excellent and experienced public speaker as typical audience size ranges from 50-300 passengers for each talk. However, good news travels fast aboard ships and excellent Speakers have been known to pack the house!

    The Special Interest Speaker provides a series of original presentations that would be of interest to the cruise guests. An expert on theater may give speeches on “The History of Rodgers & Hammerstein”, “The Life of an Actor” or “How to Write a Screenplay”.
