CRUISES

The Gaither Homecoming
Gaither Homecoming
series has branched out into twice-yearly cruises . One cruise normally sails to Alaska
Alaska
in September, and the other to tropical ports in February.

It was on one of these cruises, in 2006, where regular pianist Anthony Burger , a longtime favorite of the Homecoming series, collapsed on-stage as a result of a heart attack while accompanying Gaither, his wife Gloria and the rest of the Homecoming Friends.

In 2009, for the first time, a Homecoming cruise was recorded for DVD/CD releases. Alaskan Cruise Homecoming and Majesty were released in January 2011.
