Tom DeFrank (Washington, D.C.)
One of Washington's most respected President-watchers, Mr. DeFrank is an award-winning journalist and bestselling author who has covered the White House since the Nixon administration and the last 12 Presidential elections. ABC News calls him "impeccably sourced," "well-connected," and "legendary," and the American Journalism Review named him "one of the unsung heroes of Washington journalism." He co-authored the memoirs of Secretary of State James Baker and has reported on the resignation of one President, the impeachment of a second, and was an eyewitness to two assassination attempts against a third. He was Newsweek magazine's White House correspondent for 25 years and Washington bureau chief of the New York Daily News for 16 years. He is now a contributing editor at National Journal and is the senior correspondent covering the White House on a regular basis. Former President Gerald R. Ford said of him: "You are one of the finest journalists I have ever known. Everyone I know feels the same way: you are fair, trustworthy and professional."

Want to take your home movies to the next level? Post your mini-blockbusters or vacation videos to Facebook or YouTube? In five fun classes, learn how to shoot and edit short movies using an iPad. Improve your video and photo skills. The course is taught by professionals, but aimed at non-professionals.
Course requirements: please bring your own iPad and pre-load the iMovie application prior to boarding. If you do not already own the iMovie app for iOS, you must have iOS6 in order to purchase and download iMovie ($4.99) from the App Store. Once you have downloaded the iMovie app to your iPad, be sure to also download the Help files. Open the iMovie app and tap on the Help icon (it looks like a question mark). When the Help screen comes up, tap on "More Help" to download the rest of the Help files. You cannot download the app on board the ship. Due to the hands-on nature of this unique program, class size is limited to 20 participants. Please sign up online using the Priority Check-in & Planning Center (PCPC). If you sign up on board, make sure to sign up EARLY.
Crystal Cruises is the only cruise line to offer a Nordic Walking program to help you get more out of your limited exercise time on board. The use of lightweight poles for stability and balance will facilitate your fitness needs even if you have knee or hip issues. Two specially designed adjustable poles work the upper body while walking. Like cross country skiing, the poles are used by the arms to match each step the person takes. Our Fitness Staff will guide you to quickly be deck-walking for fun and fitness. You will be using feather weight aluminum poles provided by the market leader, LEKI®.
Our exclusive program features TaylorMade, the best performance golf company in the world and #1 driver in golf.
