Norwegian Coastal Voyage

with Lectures about Outer Space


A 12-day Air-inclusive Program featuring
Northbound Voyage Bergen-Kirkenes
on board the MS Polarlys


Departure: June 29 - July 11, 2006

Norwegian Coastal Voyage invites you to discover the cultural and natural treasures of Norway hosted by Dr. Kathy Sullivan, the first American woman walking in space. On this special 12-day themed program you’ll cruise along Norway’s breathtaking coast, visiting places such as the Geirangerfjord and the Lofoten Islands. On board Dr. Sullivan will share with you her experiences from space and knowledge of the sea.


Kathy Sullivan is an explorer of sea and space, educator, leader. She earned her doctorate mapping the deep seafloor in the western North Atlantic. She joined NASA in 1978 as one of 35 astronauts in the first space shuttle class, the first group to include women and minorities. She is the veteran of three shuttle missions and is the first American woman to walk in space. Dr. Sullivan left NASA in 1992 to accept a Presidential appointment as Chief Scientist of NOAA, a position that let her reconnect with earth and oceanographic science. Her passion for education led her to Columbus in 1996 to serve as the President and CEO of Ohio's Center of Science & Industry (COSI), one of the United States' premiere centers of hands-on science learning. After a decade at the helm, Sullivan shifted to the role of Science Advisor at COSI, in order to focus her efforts on national policy and major change initiatives in science education. Dr. Sullivan has received innumerable honors and awards, among them induction into the Astronaut Hall of Fame (2004). She serves on the National Science Board and is active on many other corporate and non-profit boards. She is a passionate scuba diver, avid reader and very un-serious golfer. Kathy spent her third year of college studying at the University of Bergen, Norway, and still speaks fluent Norwegian.
