How would you like to wake up in a new country? That is what I love best about a cruise. I went on a 7-day voyage exploring three countries: Honduras, Belize, and Mexico.
We hand selected eight folks to join us and while at sea, Carnival reserved a private room (the Piano Bar) for us to each present in our area of expertise.
Each guest was treated to a fabulous cruise experience, different culinary venues each evening, shore excursions, and most of all inspiring hands-on workshops, roundtables, brainstorming sessions, and networking – all while at sea.
As a blogger/influencer, small business owner, and entrepreneur, I can’t tell you how beneficial small retreats have been for me both personally and professionally.
While I still attend and love larger conferences and workshops, there is something so unique, special, and incredibly productive about spending a few days in an intimate setting with like-minded go getters.
I went on my very first cruise with my family a year ago and while at sea I kept envisioning an intimate conference retreat — a bloggers retreat cruise. It is so amazing to realize how that idea came to fruition.
While at port we selected our choice of hosted excursions. Not only was this a conference while at sea, but an excursion experience to network, relax, and have fun.
While in Roatán, Honduras we ventured into the jungle with iguanas, parrots, and monkeys, oh my!
Plus, a relaxing day soaking up the sun on white sandy beaches and swimming in pristine Caribbean water.
In Belize we boarded a speed boat to ceremonial ruins and climbed a 100-foot high temple while learning all about ancient Mayan culture.
In Cozumel, Mexico we shopped, drank margaritas, ate delicious grub, and swam in turquoise water.
I didn’t want to leave this magical place.
