Cozumel Cruise - February 2018
Want to spend your winter break sailing on a luxurious cruise ship in the Western Caribbean?
Of course you do! We do too. So come along with us on a great adventure as we set sail on the warm, turquoise waters of the Western Caribbean, leaving from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, setting sail to Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico. You will love the ship, the great classes and these amazing ports of call!
Our ship sets sail from Fort Lauderdale, FL on February 24, 2018 and returns on March 1, 2018.
In between ports of call, you can spend some of your free time meeting other amazing massage therapists (getting a little bodywork yourself) while you earn the massage continuing credit hours that you need for license renewal. You will learn some great skills that you can immediately incorporate into your practice.
While on this cruise, you can earn as many as 22 live, hands-on massage therapy continuing education hours. You can take our Professional Level Series, which is part of our acclaimed Medical Massage Practitioner Program. (Earn your Medical Massage Certification by adding on the Masters Level series as part of our Land and Sea Program when you return to port. Scroll down to learn more.) We are offering popular classes from our WorkSmart Business Series, including the LMT Tax Workshop and Massage Parties Or you can also take the versalite Thai Yoga and learn a different way to work with your body. Go home with a full, clothing-on routine that you can perform without a table. You definitely want to add this service to your treatment menu.
*Bonus for Florida & Georgia LMT's - you will also receive access to an additional 12 hour online homestudy program which will include all of the Florida required hours necessary for 2018 GA renewal and FL 2019 license renewal.
We will set sail on Royal Caribbean's stunning ship, "The Independence of the Seas." On board you will be able to enjoy endless activities. If you are athletic, you may want to climb a rock climbing wall, catch some waves on the flow rider, go ice skating, play a couple of rounds of mini golf, shoot some hoops or work off some of the delicous meals with a spin class. Of course, there is a luxurious spa in case you want to receive a massage. You can relax by the pool or have pina coladas served to you in the whirlpool in the adults only solarium. Enjoy some quiet time to sit in the library to catch up on some reading. There are also many great entertainment opportunities to choose from including live shows, piano sing alongs, kareoke, dancing, theme nights, games and more. We hope that lady luck will be on your side if you are checking out the casino. Are you a foodie? Prepare to be delighted! Being on board this ship is like vacationing at a luxury resort. This is the best way to earn your CE hours!
Ports of Call and Excursions
Your cruise departs from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

You can even set up a hop on, hop off tour of Fort Lauderdale with an airport or cruise dropoff.
The first port of call is Costa Maya, Mexico. You don't even have to leave the port to have an amazing experience.

If you are feeling like exploring beyond the port, this is a great place to take in a snorkeling tour, go for a ride on a glass bottom boat or enjoy a salsa tasting. There are great all-inclusive beach clubs that you can visit or check out the Mayan themed water park excursion.
The next port is Cozumel, Mexico. Have you always wanted to see the ancient Mayan ruins? Here is your chance. Nature lovers will love exploring the caverns and underground caves. Is fishing or golfing your thing? This is the place for you. Do you like to scuba dive? Some of the best diving in the world can be found in this region! Guacomole and Margaritas anyone?
