A National Security Educational Lecture/Seminar Series

SpyCruise® is a SpyTrek® event run by the Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Studies (CI CENTRE). The CI CENTRE is an Alexandria, Virginia based company that offers over 50 training courses and briefings on counterintelligence, security and counterterrorism.

SpyTrek's SpyCruise® is a group aboard a cruise ship where members attend exclusive lectures and talks on espionage, spies, intelligence, counterterrorism and more.

Speakers are intelligence experts, leaders, officers, operatives, analysts, authors and historians, many of whom served in the US Intelligence Community.

Each cruise we choose a different ship, a different destination and a different agenda. See previous SpyCruises: Western Caribbean | Hawaii | London on the QE2 | 2010: Eastern Caribbean

SpyCruise® is a unique opportunity for anyone interested in the topic of intelligence to meet and learn from real experts in the intelligence field as well as others who share the same interest in this topic and history, world affairs, intelligence, military, books, etc.

Lectures are normally once a day and the rest of the time is yours to enjoy the cruise ship and its excursions at different destinations.

SpyCruise® 2010 was held November 13-20, 2010:
