Western Caribbean Cruise - March 2023
SIX NIGHTS ABOARD ONE OF ROYAL CARIBBEAN'S TOP SHIPS! DON'T MISS THIS!
Are you ready to have the time of your life?!! Come with us on this amazing Education Vacation. We will be setting sail on a six-night cruise on Royal Caribbean's Oasis-Class ship, the Harmony of the Seas. This is going to be an unforgettable experience on one of the world's largest cruise ships as we sail to some fantastic and fun ports of call. We depart from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, FL and we will visit Royal Caribbean's private island in Labadee, Falmouth, Jamaica and Nassau, Bahamas. This ship sets sail on Saturday, March 4, 2023, and returns on Friday, March 10, 2023.
Ports of Call
The ship departs from Fort Lauderdale, FL. Early March is an ideal time to visit South Florida. Stroll the streets, shops and restaurants of Las Olas and Riverwalk. You have your choice of beaches, world-renowned shopping, fantastic parks, museums and nightlife and so much more. You will be close to the Everglades, the Hard Rock Casino and the Jungle Queen Riverboat attraction. Whatever you are into, South Florida has it! Talk about fun in the sun! This is it.
The first port of call is Labadee, Haiti. This is Royal Caribbean's EXCLUSIVE private island and it is only for its cruisers. You will enjoy a private beach retreat complete with chairs, floats, towels and umbrellas. Lunch is included (and drinks too if you have a drink package.) Be sure to stop at the Floating Bar offshore of Adrenaline Beach for a Labadoozie, the island's signature cocktail. If you are into adventure, check out the Dragon's Breath zip line over the ocean, the Dragon's Splash Waterslide or the Dragon's Tail Coaster. If you are into action, there are guided walks, kayaks and fishing boats to check out. Don't forget to test your negotiating skills with the local vendors at the onsite marketplace.
The next stop is Falmouth, Jamaica which is between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. Are you up for high tea or would you prefer to try some jerk chicken and rum cake? Be sure to wash it down with a Red Stripe. You will be on a short trip from the amazing Dunn's River Falls which should be on everyone's bucket list. Or maybe beach horseback riding is more your thing. Or tubing down a river? Bobsledding? River rafting? This is your opportunity! This location has some great guided tours to check out. This port even has a great area to wander around and enjoy. There is plenty to keep you entertained without even leaving the port!
The final port is Nassau, Bahamas! There are plenty of activities within an easy walk. Beaches, shopping, restaurants, rum tasting, a pirate adventure and so much more to explore. Make sure to check out fritters and get a beachside massage. You are also an easy water shuttle away from the amazing Atlantis Resort where you can check out their top-rated waterpark and aquariums, participate in boating and water sports, swim with the dolphins, or just wander around their beautiful resort. This is definitely worth the trip.
When not at the port, you will keep busy by enhancing your professional skills with your choice of highly-rated massage continuing education classes. Don't worry, there will still be plenty of free time for you to relax and enjoy the cruise and go on some fun adventures.
In between ports of call, you can spend some of your free time meeting other amazing massage therapists (and 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 when you get home. Your clients will be glad you went on this great education vacation because they will benefit from all of the new skills you pick up. The best part is that ALL CLASSES ARE INCLUDED as part of our cruise package.
While on this cruise, you can take some of our most sought-after massage therapy continuing education programs including:
- The Professional Level of the Medical Massage Practitioner Program. This includes Day of the Back and Day of the Neck classes. Learn protocols to take your clients out of pain. Students enrolled in these classes will be entitled to a complimentary online Insurance Billing course. Check out our Land and Sea program. You can take the Professional Level while onboard and then enroll in the Masters Level upon return to complete the Medical Massage Practitioner Program. (See details below.)
- Introduction to Foot Reflexology is a perfect feel-good cruise class. You can lay back and get your feet rubbed. But it is so much more than that. You'll learn about zone therapy and foot and body mapping to treat the entire body.
- Classes from our "WorkSmart Business Series" are also included. You can take both the LMT Tax Workshop and How to Throw a Massage Party. These are fantastic and entertaining classes to help you build your business.

While onboard, in addition to learning some great new skills and networking with other top massage therapists, you will have plenty of time to enjoy the great activities that this ship has to offer including pool parties, outdoor movies, dance lessons, a rock climbing wall, table tennis and more. The Harmony of the Seas has a Flow Rider surf simulator, water slides, an ice skating rink, a zip line. Take some time to relax with a spa treatment, a dip in the pool or hot tub, or sip on a coffee or a cocktail while overlooking the ocean and contemplating life. You will not be bored. Feel free to bring along the family. They will love the arcade and adventure center. There are several programs for kids and teens that will keep them busy while you are in class.
You will be living the good life by going to dinner, dancing, and watching Broadway-style shows and performers. Be sure to check out the Bionic Bar where robots will serve you your drink and the Rising Tide Bar that rises and descends between the 5th and 8th decks! We hope that lady luck will be on your side if you are checking out the casino. Are you a foodie? OMG, there is more amazing food than a person could eat. Prepare to be amazed and delighted! Being on board this ship is like vacationing at a luxury resort. This is the best way to earn your CE hours! Warning: You will never want to do take CE's any other way.
