The entire family will be provided exciting, unique adventures on this 7-night Eastern Caribbean cruise onthe Oasis of the Sea from Royal Caribbean International Cruiseline.

Departing from Ft.

The additional days allow for practice in the wrestling practice facility on-ship and for family time playing on the beaches, shopping in the ports, surfing on the Flow Rider and relaxing together on a sundeck. A parent or guardian must accompany children on this world-class cruise.

Richard Foston, Founder &CEO of Grappling Tours states, “We came up with this idea as a way to combine the thrill of competitive wrestling in a family-friendly atmosphere that allows the whole family to learn and relax together.”Foston, a 4-time All-American in three different divisions, and current wrestling coach, understands that families don’t often have the chance to spend leisure time together. “Our goal for ‘War on the Waves’ is to provide a venue for children and young adults to learn the skills necessary to successfully compete while demonstrating positive moral values. ‘War on the Waves’ is a one-of-a-kind opportunity that can’t be passed up!”

“War on the Waves” wrestling tournament cruise will be an annual event that offers only 100 young wrestlers the chance to be one of the first to do battle on the mat while on the open sea.
