Eastern Caribbean Antilles


Embark on a spectacular 8-night adventure on Virgin Voyages The Scarlet Lady through the Caribbean featuring a day in Puerto Plata, a late-night stay in San Juan, and a visit to St. Croix. After 3 days of indulging in the (very) good life on board, you’ll sail to The Beach Club at Bimini to revel in our private beach club experience.

Tropical tranquility in the U.S. Virgin Islands

The largest of the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Croix has been coined “The Garden of Antilles” for its lush geography and less touristy feel. From sipping champagne on pristine beaches with crystal blue water to exploring world-class diving spots, the island stands out as an escape from everyday life.

If you are bringing a spouse, kids, family members, or friends, we ask that they still register, but they are exempt from the registration fees if they are not participating in our group activities including: private excursions, workshops, masterminds, networking, group dinners, fun swag, and more…

Is there a COST to come on the cruise? Do you mark it up?

Our main goal with this cruise is to create a memorable experience for women to connect and co-create with like-minded women, not to make money from it. 

That said, we are including a $500 event fee to cover additional expenses, such as programming, open bar parties, sustainable swag, directory, name tags, private excursions, and more…

What is NOT included in the price?

Not included in your price is:

Can I book separate with Virgin and attend the Rise HigHER at Sea Cruise Events?

Absolutely! We encourage you to book directly with Virgin and let them know you are with the Rise HigHER at Sea Circle.

However, without paying the $500 event fee, you will not be allowed to join our networking events, mastermind sessions, private dinners in the main dining room, cocktail parties, private excursions, beach parties, and more…

How do I become a group leader or workshop facilitator?

Simple. With our affiliate program, we set up a special link for you. When you refer 5 cabins, you become a Group Leader. When you refer 10 cabins, you become a VIP Leader, plus you get a $2,000 after-cruise Cash Rebate.
