The 2017 NACLNC Conference Cruise is just 11 days away, but before you can plan on tropical drinks and relaxing in a Bahamas hammock, please review the Conference Cruise Itinerary for the list of NACLNC Networking Events.
It seems like it was just yesterday that we were cruising the Southern Caribbean. Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Aruba and Curacao are now memories (some foggy, some distinct). I’m so excited to announce that for the 2017 National Alliance of Certified Legal Nurse Consultants Conference we’ll spend 7 nights cruising the Eastern Caribbean on one of Royal Caribbean’s newest and largest ships, the Harmony of the Seas. It’s so new it won’t even hit the high seas until 2016 – so we’ll be some of the first and finest passengers aboard!
Thank you for making the 2015 National Alliance of Certified Legal Nurse Consultants Conference Cruise such a success. I loved hearing how much you learned from the CLNC speakers and seeing you network with your new CLNC friends. I had such a blast with all of you.
This morning we get off the ship in San Juan and head to the airport for our flights home. I know some of the Certified Legal Nurse Consultants are extending their cruise vacation to spend a few more days sight-seeing in Puerto Rico, but I’ve got to get ready for the 2015 CLNC Certification Seminar in Las Vegas later this month.
Wow! It’s hard to believe that 7 days could pass so quickly. Today is a full day at sea as we sail back to San Juan and you know what that means – a day full of more terrific NACLNC educational sessions in the Conference Center on Deck 2. The CLNC Pros are ready to close out the 2015 Cruise with some of the best sessions yet.
Today we’re in Willemstad, Curacao. This is our last port city before returning to our last day of the NACLNC Conference sessions tomorrow. I’m really excited about Curacao – it’s the largest of the six islands in the Netherlands Antilles. The colorful architecture along Handelskade is unmistakably Dutch in character and will be fun to visit. Maybe I’ll hunt down a cup of tea on the harbor. I just hope the food isn’t too Dutch… Just sayin’
Yesterday was our first full day of 2015 NACLNC Conference Sessions. My opening, 10 Game-Changing Questions Every Certified Legal Nurse Consultant Must Ask, created some thought-provoking comments among the CLNC consultants.
We have all been having so much fun with our CLNC colleagues that it was easy to forget the reasons we came on the NACLNC Conference Cruise. It’s not just the networking, partying, excursions and duty-free shopping (well maybe for some of the CLNC consultants). It’s for the education too!
This day is sparkling and it’s my first visit to what is officially known as the “Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis,” a two-island country and part of the Leeward Islands. I love trees and in the historic Romney Manor’s gardens there is an African Saman tree which is supposed to be 24 feet in diameter, cover half an acre and is 350-years-old. You don’t see that every day back home on the mainland.
Here we are in the duty-free shopping capital of the world. Luckily, the streets of St. Thomas are a whole lot safer for duty-free shoppers than they were in the 18th century when fearsome pirates like Blackbeard roamed the streets. Today, instead of pirates, the streets are loaded with Certified Legal Nurse Consultants looking to bring home a bargain.
