Passover Travel:
Seders At Sea

GABE LEVENSON SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

hirty-some years into writ-
ing about places of special
interest to Jewish travelers
— and getting to them by
air or by land (on foot, donkey,
camel, jeep, rented car, tour bus)
I have finally made a kind of
aliyah, or ascent, into a higher or-
der of transportation. It's travel
by sea.
Fve had the maiden experience,
in recent months, of voyaging the
length of the Mediterranean on
the Cunard Princess, and the
width of the Indian Ocean aboard
the Orient Line's Marco Polo. Like
most other modern-day cruise
ships, they offer passengers an
abundance of pleasures and an ab-
sence of problems.

Passover, providing the ingredi-
ents and settings for sedorim and
even engaging rabbis to conduct
them.
Some cruise lines may prepare
Passover meals under strict rab-
binical supervision; others —
much more likely — will stock
supplies of packaged foods pre-
pared by certified kosher cater-
ers and served directly at the
table in sealed containers. In any
event, readers should check with
the various lines to determine the
nature of their kashruth.This col-
umn makes no endorsement of
any ship's Passover menu.
The following list, by no means
comprehensive,offers the names
of a number of ships, their itin-

The Orient Line's 'Marco Polo.'

Manifest are the cuisine, the
facilities and the services of a five-
star hotel. Lacking is the need to
make any decision beyond the
choice of desserts. No packing
and unpacking, clambering in
and out of tour buses, meeting
plane or train schedules, pon-
dering where to go and eat what
to do and where to sleep.
Is anything lacking on a
cruise? Perhaps one does not hear
mermaids singing, but one can
see dolphins gamboling, observe
unblemished sunsets on endless
horizons, feel the sweep of un-
polluted wind, participate in the
dramas of arrival and departure
at each foreign harbor and
(for me particularly) exult in
finding unexpected pockets of
Jewry on the most remote is-
lands.
For good reasons, then, cruis-
ing is the fastest-growing sector
of the travel industry By virtue
of the large number of Jews now
making trips by sea, the ship
lines are, in many instances, de-
veloping special programs for

eraries and where they'll be on
the evening of April 14, the first
seder night. In most cases, the
full itineraries are not spelled out,
but only those ports-of-call on a
given itinerary where there is a
Jewish community or a site of
particular historic or cultural in-
terest to Jewish travelers. The
1995 edition of the London Jew-
ish Chronicle Travel Guide is an
essential aid in locating such
places.
To all men, women and chil-
dren on all the ships at sea this
Passover — hag sameach and
bon voyage!
