MSF Cruise For a Cause®

Multiple Sclerosis Foundation is excited to announce its 2015

MSF CRUISE FOR A CAUSE®, a seven night EXOTIC CRUISE departing from San Juan, Puerto Rico on February 1, 2015.

Why EXOTIC….look at the amazing places we plan on visiting:

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO - The festive city of San Juan is the perfect place to experience true Puerto Rican culture. Get to know its roots by exploring the vibrant neighborhood of El Viejo San Juan (Old San Juan), which consists mostly of Spanish colonial buildings. Flesh out your self-guided history lesson with a visit to El Castillo San Felipe del Morro, a 16th century citadel that’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then reward yourself with a cooling dip at Luquillo or Carolina Beach, then a tasty tour of the Bacardi rum plant.


CHARLOTTE AMALIE, ST THOMAS - St. Thomas ‘s lofty popularity is earned because St. Thomas offers something for just about everyone, and it's an island that can accommodate a huge, daily population influx. St. Thomas is the bargain-shopping bazaar of the Caribbean. There are over 400 shops along the Main Street area in Charlotte Amalie and some 50 more in Havensight Mall.  St Thomas has many fun things to do including taking a ride on Skyline Drive and enjoy a breathtaking view of St. Thomas Harbor then travel to Mountain Top, the highest point on St. Thomas, and see spectacular views of Magens Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. You can check out Coral World Marine Park, where you can touch sea stars at the touch pool or explore the mystery of life in a mangrove lagoon off the Coastal Trail or sit back and enjoy a relaxing half-day sail to Buck Island aboard a large sailing yacht, or maybe travel 700 feet above the sea via skyride to The Paradise Point and see the most fantastic vistas in the Caribbean.


BASSETERRE, ST KITTS - Nestled between the Caribbean and lush mountains, Basseterre has a long history of colonial struggle that is reflected in its architecture and cultural monuments. The National Museum, St. George's Anglican Church, the Circus area and Independence Square all give glimpses to the city's past.  Basseterre also offers beautiful beaches, lively resorts and quant marinas, offering ample snorkeling,, diving, exploring  sunbathing and relaxing  opportunities.    


ORANJESTAD, ARUBA    - The Island’s colonization by the Netherlands shows in Oranjestad's Dutch colonial architecture, while the buildings' bright colors are distinctly Caribbean.   In addition to shopping, dining and entertainment, the island's capital city offers museums, a butterfly farm, art galleries, golf, historical sites and a marina.  Street vendors, boutiques, upscale chain stores, as wells as casinos and a wide range of unique restaurants and lounges, make Oranjestad a popular destination in Aruba.


WILLEMSTAD, CURACAO - The lively capital of Curacao is a welcoming, upbeat destination with two distinct historic districts divided by the lovely St. Anna Bay. Punda, site of neat, narrow streets, is crammed with shops and museums. Otrobanda, or "The Other Side," is a maze of twisting residential streets, contrasting with the organized grid across the bay. Willemstad's colorful colonial architecture has won it UNESCO Heritage site designations. Swimming with dolphins is a popular activity in the bay.

  From our veteran cruisers: 


MSF cruises have more to offer people with MS. Anything else is just a cruise.

- Jim M.

It was more than I expected. I keep saying the word AWESOME.

- Jackie G.

Do it. Just do it. Find a way to do it.

- Lori L.

It's a once in a lifetime experience. You hear how other people do things, learn from their experiences and realize you aren't the only person going through something.

- Joy R.

We keep coming back. We always learn something new.
