Zone Cruise  Update

Our hearts go out to everyone devastated by the recent hurricanes. Some of the ports that the 2018 Zone Cruise is scheduled to visit have taken a hit, and we are receiving island status updates from the Holland America Line on a regular basis. The Zone Cruise will depart from Ft. Lauderdale on March 31, 2018 , and return on April 7, 2018. The cruise is scheduled to visit Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Thomas and Half Moon Cay, Bahamas. At this time, indications are that all ports will be fully functional and receiving visitors well in advance of the Zone Cruise. In the unlikely event that a port is unable to accommodate the Zone Cruise, Holland America Line will arrange an alternative Caribbean port of call. This website will be updated as additional information becomes available. If you have any questions or would like additional information, contact our friends at Cruise Holidays at 401-223-4729 or

Join Us on an Unforgettable Caribbean Cruise

Come aboard in Ft. Lauderdale and head south to Grand Turk Island before sailing to San Juan, St. Thomas and Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas. Visit these ports to enjoy beaches, local craft shopping, horseback riding and more. Enjoy the highlight of the new Zone Cruise with gourmet 5-star Zone meals each day and learn the secrets of The 5 Stages of Zone Living from the creator of the Zone Diet® and NY Times best-selling author, Dr. Barry Sears.

Why Cruise with Zone and Dr. Sears?

Although we are living longer, it is not clear we are living better. Recent changes in our diet have accelerated the development of chronic disease at an earlier age. On the Zone Cruise, Dr. Sears will show you how to make simple, yet powerful lifestyle changes that will control diet-induced inflammation, the primary cause of weight gain, early development of chronic disease and premature aging. These changes will help you live, look and feel better as you go through life.

While traveling with us, you will enjoy:

  • Zone cocktail reception
  • Zone cuisine — 21 exquisitely prepared meals featuring the next generation of Zone foods
  • Zone seminars — Presented by Dr. Sears
  • Zone round table discussions — Exclusive access to Dr. Sears and Zone staff
  • All the amenities and experiences the ship and ports have to offer
