British Isles EduCruise 2025



June 4 – 16th 2025
Amsterdam – Round Trip
Celebrity Cruise Line – ‘Celebrity Eclipse’

The speed of change in the financial industry is both exciting and challenging. Credit Union Leaders can’t continue to do “business as usual”, but must become flexible and quick. To be able to do this, credit unions must have an understanding of critical changes impacting strategic growth, regulations, membership, leadership and innovation. Participants in this credit union cruise/conference will be given a better understanding of what changes are coming, how to prepare for fast paced change, and how to use this knowledge to experience growth in your credit union.

Join CU EduCruises on this amazing 12-night cruise to the beautiful landscapes and rich history of the British Isles. With a touch of the Netherlands added in, you’ll then sail from Amsterdam to Ireland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. Shore excursions are plentiful. Kiss the Blarney Stone, stroll the intersection of Liverpool made famous by the Beatles, enjoy a cold pint at a traditional Irish pub or search for the Lock Ness monster! You’ll find your home onboard the Celebrity Eclipse with luxurious accommodations, diverse dining choices and endless entertainment.
