Self-Care Cruise

SOLD OUT!

Our Cruise and Glow Retreat is SOLD OUT this year. Use the form above to be notified when next year’s retreat registration is open. In the meantime, check out what we had planned for this year:

October 25, 2019 – November 2, 2019

We will be island hopping the breathtaking islands of
Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Tortola (USVI) and the Bahamas.

This retreat is by invitation only and is designed especially for YOU!  

I know you are so wrapped up in your busy life, taking care of others, running your life (or your career) that you rarely (if ever) make time to take care of yourself.

Maybe, you are the exception, and have the resources and time to indulge, however, you are in need of some inspiration, motivation and guidance on your journey to living a more fulfilling, and balanced life.  

This retreat was designed especially for you.

Allow ME to take care of you in the way you normally take care of everyone else.

Trust your intuition.  You did not come across this event by chance, and if you are still reading this, that means you NEED this, and I am here for you.

“Prior to meeting Jan Marie I felt like I was drowning with all of my responsibilities as a mom, wife, and employee.  I am now able to prioritize things in my life and make time for me. Her suggestions led to lots of self discovery and more effective communication within my relationships. I am finally able to breathe again and have learned to navigate life, and live a more balanced life overall. I am appreciative of the clarity she has brought to my life and thank her tremendously.”

-K., Naples, FL

FAQs

Why is the retreat fee, separate from and additional to the cruise fee?  

I wanted to assure that everyone could afford to go & be able to choose their own preference for their cabin.  

I did not want to choose for you…I wanted to give you the ultimate decision & power.  

Maybe you want to splurge?  Amazing!

Maybe you want to go, but not go all out?  Understood.

Maybe you really want to be budget conscious but not miss out on the opportunity to go & honor yourself?  Admirable!

Maybe you want to go and participate in the retreat?  I would love to have you!

Maybe you want to take it to the next level & connect with other women just like you?  I would so love this for you!

MAYBE you just want an excuse to go, but want to relax, and don’t care to participate in the retreat portion (And just want to “be left alone”?  Even, if this is the case, I am so excited that you are taking care of your yourself, & truly loving yourself…THAT IS ENOUGH FOR ME!

But Jan Marie, I can’t afford this…can I?

The reason I structured the retreat and payments in the way that I did is so anyone can afford to go.  The deposit is only $250/ person with the cruise line just to hold your reservation and your cabin.

When is the deposit due?  

As soon as you decide you want to attend (space is truly limited).  Because, I did not want to wait until next year to host this incredible event, & I wanted to choose the perfect itinerary & the perfect time of year, the SHIP is already almost at full capacity, & I was only allowed to hold a very limited amount of rooms.  It is first come, first serve. (Trust me, don’t regret it, if you are thinking about it trust your gut.)

When is the final payment due?

90 days before the cruise.  

Do you just need some time to unwind & explore the islands?  

That is absolutely perfect.  I am SO happy you decided to make some time for yourself.  You do not need to join us on the “Retreat Days” if you do not want to.

Need to focus on yourself and participate in the GLOW Retreat Sessions?

I am so happy you are ready to honor yourself, be seen and be heard.  You are in good hands!

Why did you create a VIP upgrade option?

You know me.  You know I LOVE to spoil &  overindulge. I wanted this to be a conscious choice you made.  I did not want it to “not be your thing” & rule out the retreat all together because of it.  I also wanted to be conscious that the cruise itself is a splurge, and wanted to give you the opportunity to start with the process of confirming the retreat without having to decide about how much (more) love you were going to devote to yourself. (Again, keeping cost down for you).

Why Celebrity Cruises?

I wanted to choose a Luxury ship that catered to everything I envisioned for this fantasy retreat.  I wanted to pull out the red carpet, have white glove service & all the “bells & whistles” including the world’s most exclusive spa AT SEA!!!.  Remember, my big lesson on not settling…? I don’t want you to settle & I certainly don’t.

Who else is going?

Anyone & everyone who needs to take a break, unwind, spoil themselves, relax, reflect, take a break from their busy lives, put themselves first for a change, take a vacation….

Why this itinerary?

I am in love with the Caribbean & I know you will be too.  These are some of my favorite islands (and I am picky). This is almost identical to a cruise I took about a decade ago & still reflect back on with incredible heart string pulling memories.  It gave me time “at sea” to focus on the retreat, & a lot of built in time to enjoy these beautiful islands, people, food, beaches, nature…and it takes us to FIVE caribbean islands. I wanted you to grow, explore & be exposed to new places & encourage you to travel in the future…just because.  (You know I LOVE “planting seeds.”)

Why a cruise?

I wanted something easy to get to (a port).  A place that once you arrived you could unpack & relax BUT I wanted us to travel & experience many new things.  If I had chosen one city (which I may very well do in the future), it would not have allowed for the movement I wanted you to experience for THIS trip.  Part of this retreat is GROWTH, & I wanted you to be exposed to new people, new places & new things to also grow. I didn’t want you to worry about budget, meals, entertainment, etc. in addition to what you have already paid- I wanted the retreat experience to be as inclusive as possible.  I wanted you to have flexibility & many options…a cruise allowed me to do ALL of these things.

What if the itinerary is too overwhelming for me?

No problem!  You A L W A Y S have a choice.  You do not have to disembark at every port, or be out all day.  You decide what is best for Y O U! This is part of what I want you to start practicing as well…the freedom, confidence & clarity to TRUST YOURSELF.

When is the retreat fee due?

The Retreat fee is due by September 1st.  I wanted to give you enough time to pay the cruise separately without having to worry about the retreat fee at the same time.

Is there a money-back guarantee?

I am so confident that you will have an amazing experience that I AM making the retreat portion 100% refundable. (Unfortunately, the cruise has their own individual policies.)

I can’t predict from now to October.  What if something comes up with my family or with me medically and I cannot go away?  

That is a completely understandable concern, one that I often have.  Celebrity offers travel insurance. I personally never travel without purchasing travel insurance.  If this is your concern, I highly recommend you adding this travel insurance to your reservation directly with Celebrity Cruises.

I don’t like leaving my children, partner, family, or friends behind?  Can I bring people with me?

Absolutely!  Ideally you want to make sure you disconnect, relax & make time for yourself.  BUT if you won’t consider traveling without them, (or your partner doesn’t feel comfortable with you going without them) they are WELCOME to join you. (Again, another reason why I structured things the way I did.)  They can come, vacay with you, & if you want they can rest, hang or veg while you attend the “retreat” portion of the cruise. Problem solved! 😉



Are there any extra fees?

The best person to answer this question is directly with Celebrity…who does a good job at offering you MANY options, but most are extra.  

 

Your cruise fare should include, cruise, port fees & taxes.  

 

They do offer packages (Some additional extras I can think of are excursions, travel insurance, photos, upgraded fine dining, alcoholic beverages, spa services, etc).  

 

They do calculate an average gratuity fee per person, per day that they will also advise you of.  You can incorporate them (add them to your fare) OR you can pay those your last day at sea (your choice) but those are mandatory, not included & additional.

Are there any additional discounts?

I am so glad you asked!  There are, but they depend on you individually.  I asked them to consider them, and they will, but you have to ADVOCATE for yourself and ASK…also part of the growth process.  Look at this, I have you learning before you even go! Some discounts that I know are available (at this moment-but as anything can change at any time) are…

 

Military & Law Enforcement (Thank you for your service!)

FL Resident (WooHoo!)

Senior Citizen (It’s ok, we are only as old as we feel & behave) 😉

Celebrity Captain’s Club- offers a 1 category Upgrade

What if I don’t have anyone to go with?

My suggestion (but ultimately you have to feel comfortable with your decision) is make your deposit, & secure YOUR cabin.  Then, see if someone wants to go with you, which is very possible. Once people find out what you are doing, & where you are going they might be asking you rather than you asking them. 😉

But Jan Marie, I won’t know anyone else & I won’t feel comfortable.

This is the perfect opportunity to connect with other women who are most likely experiencing similar things in life.

Last but not least…Jan Marie why in God’s good earth did you choose the name of this retreat to be GLOW?

So I kept thinking of a pregnancy glow (“She is glowing”), morning glow, after you go to the gym glow, sunkissed beach glow, after a facial glow, after you are intimate with someone glow (stop blushing – you know it is true), shiny, new, carefree, from within GLOW.  That is what I want for you! So yes…I named it the GLOW RETREAT & I LOVE IT!!! I am going to make Y O U Glow!




If there are ANY questions or concerns that are still not answered above, I would be more than happy to answer ANY questions or concerns you may have.  Feel free to email me at info@janmarietlc.com

 

I want you to feel comfortable, confident & secure in your decision to go on this adventure with me, because if you are not, you will not have a good experience & you will be disappointed.  If you are not ready…THAT IS 100% ok. Be true to yourself & maybe you will be ready to join us next year.

 

XoXo,

 

Jan Marie
