What if you could learn all you need to know about living healthy, while enjoying a one-week Caribbean vacation? Well, it’s possible! In fact, National Geographic Traveler has chosen Holistic Holiday at Sea as one of the 100 best worldwide vacations to enrich your life.”  

This unique event is the brainchild of Miami health educator Sandy Pukel who facilitated health educational programs in Miami for four decades before deciding to take his event to sea. His first cruise attracted 400 people, but over a decade later, his educational program has become one of the largest holistic events in the country, hosting 1800 like-minded cruisers.  

With 45 teachers, 145 classes, a delicious vegan menu (with regular ship menu options available) and a social event almost every night, this program offers something for everyone interested in health and longevity. Guests choose daily from a wide spectrum of classes and workshops, ranging from several types of yoga, fitness and meditation to presentations on integrative medicine, plant-based nutrition, cooking classes and lectures given by some of the world’s leading authorities in holistic health including Drs. T. Colin Campbell, Michael Greger, Neal Barnard, Michael Klaper and Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr.  

Add all those amenities to four exotic ports-of-call on the upcoming March 11–18, 2017 sailing, and you can see why National Geographic gave Holistic Holiday at Sea such high marks. According to Pukel, The event is a relaxing vacation and educational experience that has profoundly changed thousands of lives.”
