Hey Sis! It’s that time again! As our annual retreat gets better and better every year, you don’t want to miss this one! Join us for some relaxation, empowerment, sisterhood bonding, and fun in the sun this summer!

Where we are going this year…

We are retreating to beautiful Nassau and CocoCay (private island), Bahamas via a 3-night Royal Caribbean Cruise on the Mariner of the Seas departing from Miami, FL  on Friday, August 17, 2018 and returning on Monday, August 20, 2018.

Why we choose to cruise…

For the last 3 years, we have found cruising to be the most affordable way to bring women together for an international retreat. Cruises are all-inclusive as one price includes your cruise transportation, room accommodations, meals, and activities. We are all about traveling to beautiful places and having a great time without breaking the bank. The added bonus is that we don’t have to exclude anyone from attending just because they don’t have a passport yet. You can cruise with your birth certificate and government-issued ID (U.S. residents only).

Why you should choose to retreat with us…

We are experts in cruising and hosting events for women. We guarantee that you will feel welcome and safe, meet great people, have memorable experiences, and have tons of fun.

• Custom retreat memorabilia (including t-shirt and more fabulous giveaways)
