"ABC" Most Popular Fitness Cruise in Caribbean

Book Now for 2019! Deposits Fully Refundable any time in 2018.

ARUBA, BONAIRE, CURACAO ~ Are 3 popular, well kept, manicured Dutch islands furthest away in the Caribbean. In fact, Aruba is only 15 miles off shore from Venezuela in South America. Daily temperatures on the islands idle near 80 degrees. All 3 islands, located below the Earth's hurricane belt, are hurricane proof. This is a contributing factor to their beauty. They are the picture perfect, nick named ABC islands. They were first discovered by the Spanish in 1499, and then conquered again by the Dutch in 1636. Their weather and scenery are ideal. Eventually the Dutch came to agree with the Spaniards: "These islands are very pretty, but not so useful." Spaniards were looking for gold; the Dutch were looking for oil. When neither explorers found what they wanted they left. But the Dutch did leave behind oil refineries that later were used by Venezuela. Plus the slaves the Dutch imported to help build rigs, roads and houses also stayed. Dutch language, customs, dress, culture and cuisine became the lifestyle of these mannerly, well-off islands. When you visit Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao you can hike across Arikok National Park and then bathe in Aruba's world famous natural hot springs; see cactus fences that grow up near village huts and along road sides to keep out uninvited animals and intruders; then enjoy Spanish Espresso and hot Dutch chocolate served with sweet cakes at restaurants using electrical power generated by wind mills. Today wind farms generate most of the electricity for all 276,000 ABC islanders. What the ABC islands did not have in gold or oil they made up in wind power. Ironically, the Dutch had sailed to the Caribbean looking for oil to replace using wind at home in Holland. Instead, the ABC islanders learned from the Dutch how to use westerly trade winds (westerlies) and build wind mills for their own use. The entire Caribbean has benefited from all the trade winds that brought them European explorers 600 years ago and vice versa. On this cruise you can ride across the same sand dunes and swim at the same glorious, warm, clear blue beaches as once did Spanish and Dutch explorers. And be sure to photograph the divi-divi trees. They always lean West because trade winds blow them in that direction. The Dutch were keen to learn about the bent trees. They called them ~ divi-divi ~ or pods-pods. They're filled with tannin useful in making leather. Yes. Leather. Every day on the cruise you will learn more about how the Caribbean is important to world trade. Best of all, during the cruise, your private fitness classes will be taught by certified instructors who travel with you from your hometowns. No exercise classes will conflict with shore excursions. Enjoy daily morning water aerobics classes in the ship's indoor, heated Solarium pool and then participate in a variety of land based classes too. All classes and club activities are included in your cruise fare. Each evening dine with your traveling companions at private tables in the formal dining room booked for early seating. Because this is a 12 day cruise your fully refundable deposit is $450 per person or $900 per stateroom. You may cancel anytime in 2018 and receive a full refund. No insurance is required for this club benefit. Travel insurance is required, however, when the cruise departs. Installment payments are welcome and are also fully refundable. It's called: "Laying Away to Cruise Away." Airport transfers and pre-cruise hotel arrangements in Ft. Lauderdale will be offered late in 2018. Better to book now knowing you can cancel later with a full refund than to wait. Half the balconies for this cruise are already booked.

Club members' reviews:

Totally enjoyed every part of the cruise--would not have changed a thing! Thank you for all you do. Please keep me informed about all of your upcoming cruises! Dorothy Lynch, Columbus Falls, MT.

I was not a big cruise person, but I did like the community aspect of the Fun & Fitness Travel Club. All the instructors were great! They made me and my sister feel like part of the family. It's why I'm asking now to know how my husband and I can sign up for your cruise to Alaska. Moira Lafaver, Houston, TX.

Thanks so much for the prompt return of my cruise deposit. It went right to house repairs from our hurricane. It really helped us. I hope to take one of your fun cruises in the future. You were very pleasant and professional to work with. Thank you again for my quick deposit return. Diane Petersen, Bonita Springs, FL.
