According to Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), the official trade organization of the North American cruise industry, more than 90 million passengers have cruised in the past 10 years, and more than 13 million will cruise in 2010.

?With so many different segments of the population cruising, we have a cruise for every group,? said Jim Rannazzisi owner of Group Cruises Unlimited. ?Whether you seek adventure, cultural enrichment, family togetherness or complete relaxation, the opportunities in today?s cruise market are endless.?

Group Cruises Unlimited is organizing a fund-raising cruise to Bermuda for the benefit of Marian Homes, Inc. -- non-profit organization whose sole mission is to own and maintain group homes in Virginia for persons with intellectual disability.

Marian Homes purchased their first home in the Brecon Ridge subdivision of Fairfax in 1998. The home is currently the residence to five women who live in a family environment as productive members of their community. With the resounding success of their first group home, and in recognition of the overwhelming need of this type of housing in Northern Virginia, Marian Homes purchased a second home in the Greenbriar subdivision of Fairfax. This home will be the residence four men who are expected to move to the residence in August 2010.

One-hundred percent of all funds raised by Marian Homes goes directly to group home support. Funds raised by this cruise sailing from Baltimore in April 2011 will contribute directly to the support of both group homes. For more information about the 5-Day Bermuda Cruise visit
