Voyage to Well-Being with Dr. Neal Barnard
Imagine a relaxing vacation for the mind, body, and spirit. That’s just what you’ll get with the Holistic Holiday at Sea.
You are invited to join PCRM president Neal Barnard, M.D., and many other health experts and advocates for a seven-night cruise in the Caribbean this March. The Holistic Holiday at Sea is not just a tropical get-away—it’s a voyage to well-being.
Chosen by National Geographic Traveler as “one of the 100 best worldwide vacations to enrich your life,” this cruise features presentations from health professionals, researchers, yoga instructors, and vegan chefs. Dr. Barnard will give four lectures about improving food ethics, eating for cancer and diabetes prevention, and improving government nutrition policies.
Cruises are known for luxurious food, and this one is no exception—except that instead of pizza buffets and baked Alaska, diners will experience delicious vegan cuisine created by internationally known natural food chef Mark Hanna. In the gorgeous, split-level Michelangelo restaurant, diners will enjoy dishes such as seitan paella, shiitake pâté, and blueberry peach crumble. Meals are prepared following macrobiotic principles of balance and healthfulness. All meals are vegan.
While there is plenty to experience onboard, the ship makes four stops at exciting ports of call: Key West, Fla., the Cayman Islands, Roatan, Honduras, and Cozumel, Mexico. Rates for the March 1-8, 2009, cruise include all the presentations, plus yoga and meditation classes, cooking classes, workshops, and use of the health club.
