'His passion for the ocean is inspiring and extends beyond his canvases. We’re thrilled to be partnering with him and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation once again on this special cruise on Norwegian Escape.'

Passengers will learn about Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation's efforts to conserve the ocean environment and hear from a panel of marine life experts and scientists from Nova Southeastern University about the importance of continued support for cleaner and safer waters through conservation and sustainability efforts.
