Crystal Visions Enrichment Program

Destination Lecturer

David Burgess (Liverpool, England)
David Burgess is a well-respected and experienced destination speaker who delivers his presentations in an entertaining, enjoyable, humorous and unique style. David’s presentations draw on his many years of foreign travel as well as his college lecturing skills mixed in with more than a dash of his Liverpool humor that make his series of on board lectures a must see. Prior to training as a college lecturer, David worked as a presenter and producer on UK local radio in Liverpool. David is a full-time college lecturer for The Manchester College, Europe’s largest FE college. 
 

Special Interest Lecturer

Dr. Bulent Atalay (Fredericksburg, VA)
Bulent Atalay, a scientist, artist and author, has been described by NPR, PBS, Smithsonian and the Washington Post as a “Twenty-first Century Renaissance Man.” Dr. Atalay's academic background includes undergraduate and graduate training in theoretical physics at a number of universities including Georgetown, University of California-Berkeley, Princeton and Oxford. He travels around the world lecturing at academic institutions and on cruise ships on the "A-subjects," art, archaeology, astrophysics and atomic physics, confessing that he knows much less about the "B-subjects," business, banking, biology and botany.

An acclaimed Leonardo expert, Atalay is the author of two best selling books on the intersection of art, science and mathematics, with Leonardo, the pre-eminent Renaissance man, serving as the foil. His best selling book, Math and the Mona Lisa, has appeared in 13 languages. His last book, Leonardo's Universe, coauthored with classicist Keith Wamsley, so far is in two languages, English and Japanese. He is currently working on a new book for National Geographic Books entitled The Miracle Year, about Isaac Newton's explosive creativity during the Year of the Plague (1665-1666).

Special Interest Lecturer: World Affairs

Tom Faranda (Scottsdale, AZ)
Tom has worked around the world and has clients in China, Japan, India, Malaysia, Mexico, UK, Germany, Australia and beyond. He has owned hotels in Costa Rica and the US, a pepper gas business in South Africa, an ATM firm, a global software firm, a mobile home venture in South Africa and a global consulting firm focused on business growth and profit and other ventures. Tom Faranda's global trends have been on target for over 25 years. He forecasted the rise and fall of Japan, the rise and fall of the Euro and the rise of China as a world power as well as many other trends. Tom brings global events and affairs into perspective and provides a view into the future of our world.

Nordic Walking
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®.
