Life is meant to be lived fully, with joy, with fun. What better way to do that then on a ship named The JOY!!!

The Joy of Living Cruise is a 5 day get-away designed to put you back into the groove and excitement of living.
This year’s theme is focused on


Be ready to:

Open to receiving greater
Recognize the difference that you bring
Explore the possibilities of your creative capacity
Finally, stop being the martyr and instead be the master
Boost your business – including that business called LIFE

It is time to BUST FREE of all the limits and ceilings you have put on your worth, ANNIHILATE the obstacles you have put before you, and truly experience the magic, grace, and wonder of INFINITE LIVING.


One ship, two world-class facilitators, four ports of call, over ten hours of Creating Abundance Seminars, and an infinite number of possibilities…

Join us!

This 5 day adventure is happening on the newly refurbished Norweigan JOY – a floating oasis of rejuvenation!

Your hosts and facilitators, Cari Moffet and Fay Thompson chose this adventure with purpose – they specifically wanted to invite you to  experience life while being surrounded by the nurturance and grandeur of nature.

The Pacific Coast hosts stunning views, crisp sea air, and beautiful skies. Let this adventure remind you of the fun you love having, the life you love living, and the joy you truly are.

Life is meant to be experienced!

  1. Where do we go to board the ship? You go to the Port of Vancouver at 999 Canada Place Way. If you tell a taxi that you want to go to the place where cruise ships are, they will know where to go.
  2. What’s the last day I can register? July 1, 2019. We are unable to hold cabins after that date so we will be letting go the cabins and will no longer have accommodation to offer after that date.
  3. How long is it to get from the Vancouver Airport to the Ship? It generally is about a 30 minute drive (depending on traffic)
  4. How long is it from the San Pedro Pier where we dock in Los Angeles to LAX? 20 miles
  5. How do I tip and how much? Tips are given at the end of the cruise. You will receive envelope(s) to hand in your tips. The recommended amount for this cruise is $88 USD. You do not tip at meal service or leave tips for housekeeping. It is done at the end of the trip.
  6. When are meal times onboard the ship? Breakfast is from 6am-10am. Lunch is from 12pm-3pm. Dinner is 5pm-10pm. There is also one restaurant that is open 24 hours, so basically you can eat 24/7!
  7. Can I bring my own alcohol and soda/snacks onboard? Yes, but there is a $20 corkage fee if you wish to drink it in restaurants. We recommend bringing your own corkscrew.
  8. Do I need a passport? YES. You will need a valid passport. Make sure it is valid for at least 6 months from the dates we travel.
  9. Is there a spa onboard? Yes. It is called the Mandara Spa and is not part of Norweigan Cruise Lines. All services from the spa are to be booked with the spa and paid at the spa.
  10. Will I get seasick? While it is possible, it is highly unlikely. The JOY is a large ocean cruise ship and very little movement is noticed while onboard.
  11. What kind of currency should I bring? We recommend having some USD with you as prices onboard the ship are in USD and we will be spending time in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Also you may wish to carry some CAD since we will be in Vancouver and Victoria, Canada.
  12. What time do we board the ship? Boarding begins on October 6th at noon and ends at 6pm. If you are late, you literally miss the boat.
  13. What time do we get off the ship in LA? You will arrive at the San Pedro Pier at 7am and it usually takes about 2 hours to get through customs before you are allowed to disembark.
  14. What excursions can I take? Please check www.ncl.com for excursion information.

There are only 16 registrations (8 cabins) available.
Don’t miss out. 


Cruising with Joy!

Newly refurbished in 2019 just for us (ok, that’s probably not true, but we like to see it that way), this cruise ship was created for fun, inspiration, and relaxation. It’s aptly named The Joy.  

In your package, your accommodation, meals, and Creating Abundance seminar sessions are all included.

In amongst all the joy, wisdom-sharing, laughter, and inspiration you will see 4 of the Pacific Coast’s most wonderful cities. Vancouver, Victoria, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. 

And, did we mention you will staying in a balcony cabin? Just imagine waking up, slipping on your robe, and opening your door to your veranda while the sun kisses your cheek and you breathe in the salty sea air. Luxury. Why? Because you’re worth it. 

Registration deadline is July 1, 2019. Don’t delay.
