What Puzzle Fans say about Stanís Crossword Cruises


"The Crossword Puzzle Cruise was one of the most memorable experiences of our lives. Good food, good folks, terrific puzzles and games!"
- Chele and John, California

"We had a great time, thanks muchly to your time and effort (muchly is my own word). It was a terrific chance to experience brain-challenging fun, get to know other puzzle solvers, as well as enjoy the cruise itself."
- Lois Ann and Gary, Oregon

"The crossword aspect makes a cruise especially fun for singles. Between interesting shore activities and educational tours, you can work more of Stan's puzzles on your own or with a group of colleagues; take advantage of varied ship programs - including both mental and physical games; hit the shops, the spa, the gym or the pool; enjoy the never-ending banquet, or simply curl up in a lounge chair with a good book . . . although I never found time to read on the last two crossword cruises. During the formal puzzle sessions, one can enjoy the bonhomie of fellow word enthusiasts and the info Stan imparts on words, puzzle solving and puzzle making. Some of the most enjoyable things in life all wrapped up into one week. It's a great vacation!"
- Linda, Illinois

"I liked the variety of activities offered by Stan. I enjoyed the time spent with my fellow puzzlers because it was challenging and exhilarating. We had such an interesting array of personalities! My favorite memory was the way our reputation spread at the ship's daily Trivia Contests. (I believe that each and every time we entered a team, we won!) And the variety and succulence of the food was soooooo wonderful that I became spoiled. It did not bother me that I did not have to cook or wash dishes either."
- Maurine, Florida

"I've been on every one of Stan’s crossword cruises, and have learned something new on each one. I love them!"
- Anita, New York
