Planning already is underway for the MSF's 2009 Cruise for a Cause, an empowering seven-night tour of the Eastern Caribbean.
The educational program at sea will depart February 8, 2009, from Miami, Florida.
Traveling aboard the very accessible Freedom of the Seas, Royal Caribbean's largest ship, the Cruise for a Cause will stop in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas and Philipsburg, St. Maarten.
Hundreds of people from across the country attended the most recent Cruise for a Cause, enjoying presentations on MS topics ranging from cognitive challenges to Yoga in Chairs.
This year's program, MS Center at Sea, will include MSF Medical Advisor Ben Thrower, M.D and other professionals from Atlanta's Multiple Sclerosis Institute at the Shepherd Center.
Rates range from $755 to $1140 per person, based on double occupancy. Taxes and gratuities as well as fuel and port charges are additional.
