Take a Voyage to Well-Being

Dec 28, 2016 01:20PM

Passengers can learn tips for healthy living from leading experts in holistic health during a one-week Caribbean cruise. The next Holistic Holiday at Sea, cited by National Geographic Traveler as “one of the 100 best worldwide vacations to enrich your life,” will depart on March 11 from Miami and include stops in Jamaica, Mexico and the Bahamas and Cayman Islands.

Drs. T. Colin Campbell, Michael Greger, Neal Barnard, Michael Klaper and Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr. will be among 45 authorities leading 145 classes and workshops covering yoga, fitness, meditation, integrative medicine, plant-based nutrition, cooking and more. The cruise will also offer a delicious vegan menu (with regular ship menu options also available) and many social events.

The event is the brainchild of Miami health educator Sandy Pukel, who had been conducting health educational programs locally for four decades when he decided to take it to sea. His first cruise attracted 400 people, and more than a decade later it has become one of the largest holistic events in the country, hosting 1,800 like-minded cruisers. He says it’s a “relaxing educational vacation experience that has profoundly changed thousands of lives.”

Holistic Holiday at Sea headquarters location: 434 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables, FL. For more information or to register, call 800-496-0989 or visit
