Fully Escorted by Cruise Connections CME Team

This conference is facilitated by a dedicated Cruise Connections CME team. Our goal is to take a group of individuals who have dedicated their lives to looking after others and for that time, turn it upside down and take care of them. From lavish cocktail parties, private shore adventures, daily colour newsletter, nightly pillow gifts, to signature events, we promise to turn your conference into a grand adventure where every detail is taken care of.
