Dr. Sherry's cruise destination presentation topics are drawn from stories in the Cruise through History (CTH) storybook collections. There are over 200 presentations, covering around the world ports of call, and the number grows with continued travel and extensive research. The stories present destination ports through a central character, which may be an inspirational personality, an event that shaped the place, or a building or district that has been witness to history. All presentations feature points of interest to be experienced by cruise travelers in port. The stories are entertaining, highly substantive, well researched, often from primary sources (historic diaries) aided by extensive travel and illustrated by numerous photos and original art. Material for presentations has been gathered in over 30 years of working with archaeologists and historians in heritage sites around the world and by academic study and professional experience in the fields of art, museum management, architecture, environmental and political economics.

Past destination presentations include: ports of North America, Central, and South America, including Cuba, Pacific and Caribbean islands, including Tahiti and Easter Island; North Sea ports including Belgium to Fjords and the White Sea; Iceland, Scandinavia, the Baltic Sea and British Isles; Mediterranean ports of Europe, Adriatic, Greece, Turkey, Russia, Black Sea, and the Holy Land countries. Presentations covering Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China and ports of Asia, Arabia and Africa, are also illustrated by photos from personal travel. In addition to ports, there are presentations for ocean crossings featuring great navigators, sea battles, the Bermuda Triangle and the Search for Atlantis, in addition to special presentations on the Bolshoi and art museum collections.
I have been presenting port enrichment presentations on cruise ships since 2011, and with frequency since 2014. My more than 150 cruise port presentations cover ports of the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Baltic, North Sea, British Isles, Asia, North and South America, Cuba, North and South Pacific and Atlantic. I have given presentations on Azamara, Celebrity, Oceania, Silver Sea and Windstar.
I maintain international health insurance and repatriation insurance. My Brazilian visa is current.
