Against the back drop of some of the most spectacular scenery you could wish to see, this DVD puts you on a cruise ship with the Gaithers to enjoy a worship time like no other! Opening with a rousing rendition of the title track, the DVD features many strong stalwarts from the Gaither Homecoming Series: the very powerful Gene McDonald sings "I Know Who Holds My Hand" before we get a couple of contributions from The Gaither Vocal Band "My Lord And I" and "Satisfied". Other notable Homecoming Friends are The Isaacs who contribute an original song "Little Bit Of Heaven" and the black gospel singer Larnelle Harris who sings the "Amen" evergreen and closes the DVD with an extremely powerful rendition of "I've Just Seen Jesus" sung as a duet with Ladye Love Smith. Also included on the DVD is film of the places and things they saw in Alaska such as travelogue-style footage waterfalls, whales and good places to eat! The project has its serious moments as Bill recalls that his former pianist Anthony Burger died on a cruise some years ago and there is a moving tribute to his widow and daughter who are both on board. One of the best Gaither DVDs I have seen in a while.
