But, I have never heard of them and wonder how they compare.

I am a single mom (age 51) traveling alone with son (age 11). Booking MV Explorer with Enrichment voyages. We are aware there will not be any other children on this trip, OK with that. Never on a cruise before, Anything I should know? Do I need to worry constantly that he is going to fall overboard? Are cabins provided with same basics as hotel rooms? (ie hair dryer, iron?) How likely is motion sickness? We have lower deck inside cabin. Hoping to take advantage of the many "field trips" as we are going for the cultural experience. Any comments on those?I haven't been on the ship that you just booked but I did survive a trip around the world with the same program (Semester at Sea). The ship is casual, no casino, a large library, and the emphasis is on education (and not partying - although some students may disagree with me). The Enrichment voyages attract people that are more interested in education, culture, history, etc.
