Message from Director


Greetings cruisers,

Only 3 days until Embarkation Day! We are so happy that you decided to join us this year for our Alaskan adventure! A few of us will arrive in Seattle on Friday, September 7.  The team is planning to get together for dinner and a short vesper service afterwards at the Best Western Hotel Federal Way. If you are arriving early and would like to meet up with us, please text me at 317-922-7723 to receive updates on the time.

CWM is very grateful for the service that Kymberly Kancz has provided our group over the years. Because we are sailing from Seattle, we have the pleasure of meeting up with her and chatting for a bit. Meet us at the Best Western Hotel Federal Way on Saturday, September 8 at 4:00 pm.


We are excited about all of the great things that God has prepared for us. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me via cell (by text) 317-922-7723.

Rabel's Seattle Address:
Best Western Plus Seattle/Federal Way
32124 25th Ave S
Federal Way, WA 98003

Service Projects

Our port coordinator, Vern Byrd, has been working with local entities at the ports in Alaska to find opportunities to serve the respective communities. Specific details for these projects are still being worked out and will be shared on the ship. Sign-up sheets will be available the evening before each project for those ports where more than one option is available.  Below, you will find general information on the ports and projects that we will be involved in:
  • Juneau:
    • Community
  • Sitka:
    • Salvation Army
    • SDA Church: paint, landscaping
  • Ketchikan:
    • Boys & Girls Club: paint, clean, work on insulation
    • Homeless Shelter
Donations of basic needs items for the homeless shelter are welcomed. The storage space in the boat is very limited this year.  Because of this, if you desire to bring donations, we are requesting that you keep them with you in your room to bring with you at our stop on Ketchikan.  Below is a list of suggested items to bring:
  • Toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • Soap
