Voyage to Well-Being Cruise

The next Holistic Holiday at Sea, a one-week cruise cited by National Geographic Traveler as “one of the 100 best worldwide vacations to enrich your life,” will depart March 11 from Miami and includes 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 cruise is the brainchild of Miami health educator Sandy Pukel, who had been conducting educational health programs locally for four decades when he decided to take his idea 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 calls the voyage, “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
