Stay tuned for more information to come!
One year ago (December 2022), Bells of the Cascades conducted a survey of our own members and of our supporters to gather input on the thoughts and feelings of the handbell community about cruising in general, and cruising with BOC specifically.
The Covid pandemic put the brakes on much of the cruising world, but we are happy to report that we received 120 responses to our survey. Along with other important feedback, we discovered:
- 57% of our responders have cruised with us in the past, while 43% had not;
- Despite the number who had not already cruised with us, 86% of the total number of responders said they would like to cruise with BOC (again, or for the first time);
- Only 14% responded they would not want to cruise with BOC again (or at all).
It has taken a year to process these results, discuss our internal goals and objectives, and at long last, form a committee to take us to Cruise XVI!
After sponsoring fifteen cruises in the past 33 years, we will be celebrating our 35th Anniversary with our sixteenth in 2025, as the “cruising choir” of the handbell world!
