* TRAVEL PLAN #2: (cruise from Fort Lauderdale, FL)
With Travel Plan #2, you can cruise from Fort Lauderdale, FL on Balearia's ferry, "Jaume 1."  If you choose to cruise on the ferry, there are two sub-options available:

* Sub-Option #1:
You will leave Fort Lauderdale on Friday, 6/23/17.  Boarding time begins at 5 a.m. and ends at 7 a.m..  The ferry leaves port at 8 a.m..   You will arrive in Freeport at 11:30 a.m. and be transported to our host hotel, the Lighthouse Point at Grand Lucayan Resort.  You will check in to your hotel room and spend Friday - Sunday on the island (3 days / 2 nights).  An additional $95 retreat registration fee is required, which allows you to participate in all retreat activities and events for the full weekend.  On Sunday afternoon, 6/25/17 at around 4 p.m., you will be transported back to the ferry where you will re-board the ferry and leave the island.  The ferry arrives back in Fort Lauderdale, FL on Sunday, 6/25/17 at 9:30 p.m..

* Sub-Option #2:
You will leave Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, 6/24/17.  Boarding time begins at 5 a.m. and ends at 7 a.m..  The ferry leaves port at 8 a.m..   You will arrive in Freeport at 11:30 a.m. and be transported to our host hotel, the Lighthouse Point at Grand Lucayan Resort.  You will check in to your hotel room and spend Saturday - Sunday on the island (2 days / 1 night).  An additional $75 retreat registration fee is required, which allows you to participate in all retreat activities and events for the two days.  On Sunday afternoon, 6/25/17 at around 4 p.m., you will be transported back to the ferry where you will re-board the ferry and leave the island.  The ferry arrives back in Fort Lauderdale, FL on Sunday, 6/25/17 at 9:30 p.m..

* Prices for Sub-Options #1 & #2:
The ferry provides fast transportation (only 3.5 hours each way) at an affordable basic rate, but that basic rate does not include major amenities -- such as a cabin or meals, which are extra.  However, the basic rate does includes a hotel room at our host resort, the Lighthouse Point at Grand Lucayan.  So, because of the large variety of choices available in these two sub-options -- WE ASK THAT YOU CONTACT US BY PHONE FOR DETAILED PRICE INFORMATION about these two sub-options.  Call 305-234-8689.  You will find that the travel flexibility in these two sub-options are ideal if you can't take too many days off work -- and the prices are noticeably less expensive than those in travel plan #1.  The prices for these two sub-options could be as low as $400 pp for 3 days / 2 nights and $275 pp for 2 days / 1 night.




* TRAVEL PLAN #3: (fly from YOUR CITY direct to Freeport)
With Travel Plan #3, you can leave YOUR CITY any time you desire and remain in Freeport for as long as you desire because you make your own travel arrangements and hotel accommodations.   You need only to pay us the $95 retreat registration fee per person in order for you to participate in all of our weekend-long retreat activities and events.  If you would like to book your hotel room at the Lighthouse Point at Grand Lucayan Resort, you can contact them directly.
