Lisa's 5 Favorite Things About the Hungry Girl Cruise

Oct 11 2017
Hi, it's me, Lisa! Chilly weather is right around the corner, so it's time to plan your next vacation: the Official Hungry Girl Cruise! On April 7th, 2018, we'll be hitting the high seas for an incredible 7-night trip to the western Caribbean. I truly hope you'll join me for this life-changing experience. Need a little convincing? Here are my five favorite things about the Hungry Girl Cruise!

FYI: Most of the Hungry Girl destinations were not impacted by this season's hurricanes, and those that were will be fully operational and ready for us in April! The Hungry Girl Cruise program is sailing full speed ahead, so get on board!

1. The Bonding! Forming Friendships to Last a Lifetime

This cruise is like a luxury summer camp for grown-ups! You'll connect with me and fellow HG cruisers, and you'll build a support system that will last long after the cruise ends. I can't wait to get to know you and help you achieve your goals. Whether you come with pals or family members (FYI: husbands and kids can come at a discounted rate), you'll definitely leave with a new crew of forever friends!

2. The Programming! Information & Motivation to Help You Live Your Best Life

This isn't just any cruise... It's a cross between a tropical vacation and a life-altering event! The Hungry Girl Cruise programming will give you tools and know-how to achieve your health goals on and off the ship! We've got panels, discussions, interactive Q&As, and exercise sessions for all levels with my personal trainer! We'll tackle emotional eating, weight-loss plateaus, and other common struggles... No topic is off-limits!

3. The Destinations! Tropical Ports That Are Basically Paradise

The Holland America cruise ship is a dream locale in and of itself, but we'll also be spending time at four phenomenal western Caribbean locations: a private island in the Bahamas; the white-sand beaches of George Town, Cayman Islands; arguably the best spot in Mexico, a.k.a. Cozumel; and the wildly gorgeous Key West, FL. Experience culture, shop 'til you drop, take a swim in the ocean, or just lounge on the beach. FYI: The last Hungry Girl cruise visited that private Bahamian island, and it was one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever set foot on. I’ll never forget those turquoise waters!

4. The Food! Delicious Hungry Girl Dishes & More

Whether you want to lose weight on the cruise or you plan to indulge, this trip has got you covered! Hungry Girl entrées and desserts will be served nightly, complete with calorie counts. And the rest of the Holland America food is TOP NOTCH: so many healthy options, plus decadent ones worth splurging on! There really is something for everyone.

5. The Nonstop Fun! Parties, Get-Togethers & Beyond

I LOVE spending time with the HG cruisers, especially at our special parties and meetups! Sip Hungry Girl cocktails, snap selfies with me, dance it up to live music at B.B. King's Blues Club, join me for after-lunch deck-walking, enjoy karaoke led by my super-entertaining pal Julie… Seriously, the fun never stops! And don't forget about everything the ship has to offer: the casino, duty-free shopping, a deluxe spa, and more. I can’t wait!
