Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown will be cruising the high seas as a featured speaker on the Crystal Cruises' Crystal Symphony ship next month, USA Today reports.

Brown is one of several politicians to appear as part of the luxury cruise lines’ Crystal Visions Enrichment Program, which highlights "former politicians, high-ranking military officers and other leaders to ships for lectures, discussions and on-board debates."

Bob Graham, a former Florida governor and U.S. senator, and Alan Simpson, a former U.S. senator from Wyoming, are scheduled to speak on Crystal ships in November as well.

According to the cruise lines' website, the seven-night Western Caribbean cruise on the 922-passenger Crystal Symphony is priced between $4,000 and $26,000, depending on the level of accommodations.

Brown served as the senator from Massachusetts from 2010 to 2013 — he won the late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s seat — but lost a challenge by popular progressive Elizabeth Warren in 2012.

In 2014, Brown launched an unsuccessful bid to unseat New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat. Brown owns a home in the Granite State.

He worked as a political contributor for Fox News after losing his Massachusetts seat but left the network when he decided to oppose Shaheen. After that loss, Brown returned to Fox News.

The Boston Globe reported in February that Brown had applied for his Massachusetts pension benefit, meaning he was technically retiring. He filed for his $60,000 annual pension 13 days after losing to Shaheen by less than 16,000 votes.

That pension is based on Brown's nearly 17 years of state, county and municipal service, the Globe said.

USA Today reports that Brown signed on with Fox News in February 2013, and earned $140,000 through March 2014, when he announced his campaign against Shaheen.
