"The 'Voyage to Well Being' was such an inspiring vacation that I signed up my entire family for the next year before I left the ship! What a fantastic way to combine enlightening seminars with interesting ports of call while avoiding the hassles of transportation and the search for quality food. And as an added bonus--the opportunity to form friendships for a lifetime!"

2017 Ports of Call

Miami, Florida

Sat. March 11th
Depart: 7:00 pm

Miami

From Miami’s glitzy waterfront skyline to the elegant splendor of Miami Beach’s pastel-coloured art deco extravaganza, from the subtropical wetlands of the Everglades to a choice of stunning beaches giving onto the azure blue of the Atlantic Ocean, this all-American resort is a holidaymaker’s dream. Miami’s year-round sunshine, its cosmopolitan ambience, dramatic glass-and-steel architecture and fascinating hinterland have made it popular as a holiday destination in the United States for people all over the world – regardless of the season.

Must-sees on your break in the United States not only include the incredible Everglades wetlands area, an important natural habitat for alligators and other marshland wildlife, but also the beautiful, multi-hued art deco district in Miami Beach and the jaw-dropping architecture on Star Island. The city’s long stretch of pristine beach is naturally a highlight in itself.


Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Mon. March 13th
Arrive: 10:30 am
Depart: 5:00 pm

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Ocho Rios means eight rivers in Spanish, and it precisely its rivers, as well as its crystalline sea, that are its main characteristics; characteristics that will not disappoint visitors to Jamaica wishing to immerse themselves in the lush vegetation of these marvellous dream locations. Just like a mirage, the white buildings of Ochos Rios seems to appear unexpectedly from lush vegetation covering the coast. On Main Street, you will be able to shop or pass your day on solid ground.

There's no shortage of fun activities on the island. A popular sightseeing tour is to visit Dunn's River Falls - spectacular waterfalls that flow directly into the ocean.


George Town, Cayman Islands

Tues. March 14th
Arrive: 9:00 am
Depart: 4:00 pm

Georgetown

Cruise passengers will soon see why George Town is such a delightful stop-off destination. Visitors never tire of the wide open blue skies and lush green vegetation that forms a perfect backdrop for the brightly coloured tropical flowers that are native to the island.

The world-famous Seven Mile Beach (in reality only 5.5 miles!) is often hailed as ‘the loveliest beach in the Caribbean. The calm, crystal waters are enchanting and whether you choose to join in our exciting ‘wreck & reef’ snorkelling experience, interact with friendly stingrays or stay above water in a catamaran or glass-bottomed boat you cannot fail to be seduced by what these waters have to offer.


Cozumel, Mexico

Wed. March 15th
Arrive: 10:00 am
Depart: 6:00 pm

Cozumel

The island of Cozumel is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, attracting an estimated 20 million people a year keen to enjoy its unique mix of glorious beaches, superb diving and ancient archaeological sites. The town of Cozumel is the perfect place to relax in the tropical sun and the perfect gateway to the island’s ancient treasures.

The first evidence of civilization on Cozumel dates back to the Mayans of 300 BC. Cozumel's importance to Mayan society came from its vantage point as a port and from its apparent powers of fertility. Mayan women would travel to the island in the hope that the special properties of the area would furnish their children with good health and good luck. It is possible today to see the excavated ruins of San Gervasio, a holy Mayan monument, originally a temple built to honor Ixchel, the Mayan god of medicine, love and fertility.


Nassau, Bahamas

A beautifully preserved city, with Victorian mansions, cathedrals and 18th-century fortresses, Nassau is an entrancing port of call. This flat island is located in the north-eastern part of the island of New Providence in the Bahamas and covered by pine-tree woods, lakes and swamps. In the north there are wonderful beaches, tourist ports, golf courses and many other venues for leisure and free time.

Once off the ship, you will discover Nassau’s weather-beaten, ancient forts and fine local and international crafts and goods from handmade lengths of batik to Rolex watches. Also explore the Queen's Staircase - 66 steps lead to a breathtaking panoramic view. An abundance of smart casinos, cabaret shows, and cruise ship docks make Nassau a vibrant center for entertainment as well as commerce, and a memorable stop during your vacation.
