All the activities arranged for your Good Mourning Journeys Cruise Program have been carefully selected to create the opportunity for healing and growth. There will be seminars, workshops, facilitated support group sessions, a remembrance celebration, and more. As possible, these will be held while sailing at sea to allow you all the time you'd like to explore the ports of call. We'll be offering a group excursion in one or more of the port destinations to share the experience with new friends. Of course, there will be plenty of time to enjoy the culinary, entertainment, and pampering services of the ship -- such as BBC Earth Experiences, Casino action, and the Greenhouse Spa. We are welcome to gather again at dinner. Most importantly, choose to engage as much or as little as you choose. This is your time to heal. 

SPACE IS LIMITED! We will be a relatively small group onboard and have reserved private meeting space for our program. The Good Mourning Journeys Cruise Program fee is separate and in addition to the cruise fare. Minimum age of 18.
