Ihab Anwar: Adventures aboard the MV Explorer

The 2014 Semester at Sea program is an experience Ihab Anwar will look back fondly on for the rest of his life. A three month educational voyage to ports, cities and countries adoring the Baltic Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, respectively, the Semester at Sea adventure exposed Anwar and his classmates to a myriad of sights, cultures and peoples that helped to forever alter their perspective of the world, as well as what it really means to become an active global citizen.

The MV Explorer, a ten-year-old mid-sized cruising vessel, toted both Dr. Ihab Anwar and his fellow scholars to ports throughout Europe, Russia and even islands in the Bahamas, exposing each to a wondrous variety of scenic, architectural and historic opportunities rarely found within a classroom setting. Tour Director and History Professor Camron Lodge walked his students through 17 port cities within 15 cities, including the historic St. Petersburg, Russia.

Ihab Anwar – Dabbling in Piano Playing

Dr. Ihab Anwar softens his surgery patients with an old joke: A surgeon operates on a pianists’ hands. The pianist asks the surgeon afterward if he’ll be able to play the piano when it’s over. The surgeon tells him that he will, of course. The patient says, “That’s funny. I couldn’t play before!” The joke has been allaying surgery patients’ nerves for years, and it brings up an interesting link between medicine and music.


Ihab Anwar plays the piano himself in his spare time, and he once read a study about an eye doctor in Honolulu who pushed a piano into a hospital room and played classic piano pieces by Debussy, Chopin, and Beethoven.

Ihab Anwar: A Renewed Interest in Travel

Dr. Ihab Anwar traveled quite extensively as a child, following his parents to various destinations around the globe as he lost himself in the many wonders, cultures, sights and smells the world had to offer. The travel bug, so to speak, took Anwar by force, though his passion for traveling began to waver as he became more and more immersed in the adventures of childhood, and academic study, in his hometown of Manchester, England.

Ihab Anwar

The passion for international travel Ihab Anwar enjoyed as a child has been renewed, thanks to the incredible experiences he attained as a student in the Semester at Sea program. Between September and December of 2014, Ihab Anwar, along with over 700 young scholars from around the globe, enjoyed the opportunity to embark on an incredible, hands-on educational adventure, one that exposed each student to many of the wonders, cultures, beauty and variety the world has to offer.

Dr. Ihab Anwar, who was nearly overwhelmed by the 108 day adventure, experienced something transcendental, almost profound, as a Semester at Sea student. Anwar, who is currently studying marine biology at the University of Rhode Island, continues to rave about the experiences he had both on and off the MV Explorer, which served as the students’ transport for the entire three plus months.

Ihab Anwar - Environmental Concerns

Anwar is studying both marine biology and journalism as a University of Rhode Island exchange student. Originally a student at the University of Manchester, Ihab Anwar plans on pursuing his renewed love of travel following the completion of his undergraduate studies.

Ihab Anwar: The Process of Learning at Sea

The Semester at Sea program, without a doubt, was a life-changing experience for Ihab Anwar, who completed his round through the North Sea, Atlantic and Caribbean just last December. A studious academic and current student at the University of Rhode Island, Anwar won’t ever forget the incredible three month journey he shared with 700 of his fellow sailing enthusiasts; students seeking just a little bit more than the experience of classroom instruction could afford.

Ihab Anwar first learned of the famed study abroad program just two years ago, and was skeptical at first as to the freedom to learn and experience the program would actually offer. His skepticism, however, was overridden by a growing excitement to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; the chance to visit 15 different countries throughout the Eastern seaboard in one fatal swoop.

For over a year, Dr. Ihab Anwar virtually begged his parents to sign off on the adventure, gradually breaking down their defenses by showing his research on the organization, the itinerary and its long history of success and acclaim throughout the field of education. His parents, who caved just six months before the trip went underway, were quite impressed at Anwar’s tenacity, and gave their permission, and a hefty check, to the Institute for Shipboard Education in early 2014.

Ihab Anwar

Learning aboard a ship, at least for Anwar, was an interesting experience, as classroom instruction was made an integral, if not central part, of the learning at sea process. Though Anwar and his classmates received a powerful firsthand learning experience in 17 different port cities throughout the globe, they were also required to sit through and complete work on such classroom subjects as science, mathematics, English and more.

Ihab Anwar appreciates the complementary learning process, or the division between classroom instruction and in-the-field experience, the Semester at Sea provided. The voyage, which totaled 108 days, provided Anwar and his shipmates a truly special learning opportunity they won’t soon forget, as well as an incredible bonding experience with each other that worked to create, in some cases at least7, lifelong friendships.


“The time aboard the MV Explorer was something that will stick in my head forever,” Dr. Ihab Anwar remarked in his journal. “I wish it would’ve lasted much longer, but I am grateful for the chance to see and experience things I wouldn’t have otherwise been able to. Lisbon was my favorite place to visit by far.”
