Oh, oh, oh… I have a beautiful plan for your life… well, at least for 7 days of your life!!
It’s a get away with a take away and I planned each day of it with you in mind!
(A printed schedule will be sitting on your bed when you check in to your cabin).
I’ll be your host for this unforgettable all-inclusive vacation. Below you’ll read how I’ve designed it with just the right amount of fun, just the right amount of inspiration — the perfect blend to make it a week of relaxation for you!
Ft. Lauderdale. Half Moon Cay. Cozumel. Grand Cayman. Key West.
Holland America’s Nieuw Amsterdam Ship.
You don’t need to worry or plan — here’s what to expect…
Day 1, Sunday:
Board the ship anytime between 12:00 and 3:30. Head up to the lido deck for lunch, or a snack — the buffet is huge. Settle into your state room. Unpack completely and put your luggage under the bed! Good bye luggage, hello new home for the next 7 days!! Rest or explore the ship and hear the horn as we leave the dock. Gather at 5:00 for our “Welcome Aboard” with the whole cast of castaways… Jennifer Rothschild, Kirk and Chelsea Cameron, Michael O’Brien, and Meredith Andrews. Dine together at 8:00, and then attend a show on the ship or dance the night away or go to bed early and enjoy absolutely no responsibilities!
Day 2, Monday:
Enjoy breakfast in the dining room or on the deck, or even better, in your room! You choose it and the fab ship staff delivers it right to your door. It’s included. No extra costs or services! Then board a tender to sail to Half Moon Cay, Bahamas, a beautiful private island where you can hang out at the beach or enjoy any of the ship’s excursions.
Get back on the ship about 3:00, go to the pool or the spa or order some room service delivered to your state room — maybe some afternoon tea, cookies, and fruit (that’s what I do) — or a pizza! Gather at 5:00 for “Monday Mojo” with Jennifer Rothschild and Michael O’Brien and worship lead by Meredith Andrews. Inspiring, encouraging and practical Bible teaching along with worship and guaranteed laughter as we Spill the Beans!
Dinner is at 8:00 in the dining room or you can eat wherever or whatever you please. This is your vacation!
Day 3, Tuesday:
You are forgetting what day it is by now! Today is a sea day, so as we sail past Cuba we’ll gather for “Tuesday Testimonies” with Kirk Cameron, Chelsea Cameron, Jennifer Rothschild and Michael O’Brien and Meredith Andrews. Then, join all the platform guests for hugs and pictures and autographs — meet and greet at 11:00. The morning will start you off to a wonderful day. You can lay by the pool, read, and relax. Or you can find tons of fun to have on the ship.
All that relaxing may be exhausting so you may have to go back to your cabin to nap!
Gather at 5:00 for some Fresh Grounded Truth. Bible teaching, worship and fellowship with… the Castaways, then we’ll dine together at 8:00. If you aren’t up for dinner in the dining room, just order room service! Shrimp cocktail, fresh fruit, burgers… whatever you are craving will show up at your door!
Board a tender and head over to Grand Cayman for shopping or swimming with the stingrays or whatever your little cruising heart desires!
Gather at 5:00 pm for some “Wednesday Worship” with Meredith Andrews. She will lead us in praise and her concert will bless your sunburned self. Kirk Cameron and Jennifer will also present a devotional thought to bless you. Dinner is at 8:00 in the dining room. So many desserts, so few evenings! You may need to get more than one each night! After dinner, hang out on the deck with your BFF or attend one of the many shows on the ship.
Day 5, Thursday:
Today, we dock in Cozumel, Mexico. Before you get off the ship, gather with your cruising buddies for some “Thursday Thankfulness” at 9:00 am. Jennifer Rothschild, Meredith Andrews, and Kirk Cameron will all fill your cup with inspiration.
Gather back at 5:00 after you have enjoyed Cozumel and enjoy being together for Bible teaching and worship, then dinner will be at 8:00 and if you haven’t yet, you must try the creme brulee! At 10:30 pm we will Worship in the Moonlight on the SunDeck.
Day 6, Friday:
We are at sea today. Gather at 9:00 am for some “Friday Fun” with the whole gang! Michael O’Brien will lead worship and offer lots to laugh about. We will start the day with fellowship and stories and prayer. What a fab day to get a massage! The Spa offers specials and today’s just may be 20/20/20. You pick which treatments you want and get 20 minutes of each!
Enjoy the ship today, try something new to eat, explore a deck you haven’t been on yet. Most of all, relax!
If you didn’t get to already, meet and greet the Castaways (platform guests ) for some hugs and pictures at 11:00!
Gather back at 5:00 for some Fresh Grounded Truth from Jennifer and be led in worship by Michael O’Brien. Hear Meredith sing heaven down and listen as Kirk and Chelsea Cameron spill the beans.
Dine at 8:00 — this is formal night, so if you want to dress up, this is your chance! If you don’t, no worries. Just eat on the lido deck or get room service!
After dinner, attend the biggest and best show the ship presents all week — at 10:00.
Day 7, Saturday:
Can you believe this is the last day? It goes too fast, doesn’t it?! Get your sunscreen and you’re walking shoes because you’re getting of the ship for Key West. You can disembark as early as 8:00 am so we won’t gather this morning. We’ll save all our energy for our big “Bon Voyage” at 5:00. We will learn and laugh and celebrate our new friendships. You will love the special surprises tonight. Then, dine together at 8:00 and eat as much as possible because tomorrow you’ll probably want to start a diet! Ha!
The ship docks early in the morning because reality beckons! You’ll hug all your new friends and exchange emails and Twitter handles so you can keep in touch. You are a little sad but you are leaving the ship with great memories, an incredibly rewarding experience, new friends and an “I can’t wait to do this again” attitude! I am so glad you came. You made it even more fun and meaningful!
