Let's Go Cruising with CTMH!

One of the perks of being a Close To My Heart Consultant is the opportunity to earn a fabulous incentive trip! We started working towards our newest trip on Saturday - a Southern Caribbean Cruise! Have you ever dreamed of taking your spouse, children, friend, (or perhaps no one) on a fabulous cruise?  From October 1, 2011 through September 30, 2012, many of us will be working to do just that!



Your Caribbean Adventure Awaits!

History, culture, and breath-taking natural beauty await you in the sparkling Caribbean Sea. Close To My Heart’s 2013 Southern Caribbean Cruise will take you there!

Cruise from one charming port to another, from one exotic island to the next, aboard the Celebrity Summit® cruise ship on Close To My Heart’s 2013 Southern Caribbean Cruise. You’ll love the intoxicating atmosphere of this beautiful corner of the world where you can relax in style.


Start your Caribbean cruise in the fascinating city of San Juan, Puerto Rico. This city is one part modern port town and one part historic relic of a 16th century Spanish colony. Before you board, or after returning you can:
  • Tour Old San Juan, the second-oldest European settlement in the New World
  • Visit museums, forts, castles, churches, cathedrals, and other historic sites
  • Explore El Yunque Rain Forest, site of what was once believed to be the Fountain of Youth
  • Shop at the Plaza Las Américas, a premier modern shopping mall featuring hundreds of stores


After a fun-filled day in San Juan, we're off to St. Croix, US Virgin Islands! This charming port is a welcoming and quiet town on the largest of the three main islands in the United States Virgin Islands. Known as the “undiscovered virgin,” this island’s beautiful Victorian architecture and laid-back feeling are sure to get your vacation off to a perfectly peaceful start. While you’re here:
  • Visit the historic Fort Frederik, built in the mid 1700s
  • Snorkel or dive in a beautiful coral garden just off shore
  • Explore colonial era churches, cathedrals, customs houses, and homes
  • Take a walk along Christiansted’s scenic Boardwalk
  • Pick up some delicious, locally grown, fresh fruit in the Frederiksted Market Square
Our next stop is Bassetere, St. Kitts. St. Kitts tops the list of Caribbean destinations published by the US News and World Report. Why? From gorgeous white-sand beaches to beautiful historic sites, St. Kitts has it all. You may want to do some of these great activities:
  • Lounge and swim at Frigate Bay, Banana Bay, Turtle Bay, or one of the island’s other beautiful beaches
  • Explore Brimstone Hill Fortress and National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site of historical, cultural, and architectural significance
  • Take a walk around historic Independence Square, the social and commercial center of Basseterre
  • Visit the impressive Church of the Immaculate Conception, built in 1713
  • Take a catamaran cruise off the shore of the island
  • Do some golfing, shopping, diving, snorkeling, or fishing—you can take your pick!

Roseau, the capital and largest city on the island of Dominica is our next port of call. Roseau will dazzle you with its beauty, charm, and sophistication. You will have plenty of activities to choose from, such as:
  • Diving and snorkeling, where you’ll find stingray, snapper, barracuda, parrotfish, and dolphin
  • Hiking through lush rainforests to discover waterfalls, caves, and more natural wonders
  • Taking in the festive sounds of reggae and calypso music
  • Visiting the botanical gardens, home to rare Dominica parrots and a wide variety of plant life
  • Shopping for hand-crafted souvenirs at the Old Market Plaza


Often called one of the most picturesque ports in the Caribbean, St. George’s, Grenada is stop on the cruise. It's guaranteed to be one of your favorite stops! The mountainous terrain, beautiful beaches, colorful buildings, and spice-scented air combine for an unforgettable experience. On Grenada, you can:
  • Explore an extinct volcano in the Grand Etang Forest Reserve and lake, surrounded with lush vegetation, tropical birds, and rare flowers
  • Visit the Grenada National Museum for a peek into Grenada’s colorful culture and history
  • Shop for exotic spices, local textiles, and handicrafts
  • Enjoy some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in Grenada, where you can even see a 600-foot 1961 shipwreck in an offshore reef
  • Tour working sugar and spice plantations that comprise a leading source of the world’s ginger, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and cocoa
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas enjoys one of the most strategic locations in the Caribbean, which lead to rapid development as it became a favorite spot among sugar exporters, traders, and pirates. Charlotte Amalie still thrives in a spectacular location with a fascinating history. Some things you can do to enjoy this final port stop are:
  • Unwind on the white sand beach of Magen’s Bay, rated as one of the top ten beaches in the world
  • Catch a breath-taking view from the top of the St. Thomas Skyride that lifts you 700 feet above the harbor to Paradise Point
  • Tour Blackbeard’s Castle, a Danish fortress built in 1679 and locally called after the notorious pirate Edward Teach
  • Take advantage of the bounteous duty-free shopping along Charlotte Amalie’s centuries-old waterfront or in the Havensight Mall
