Your Host

Please accept my personal invitation for you to join Steve Forbes, an outstanding roster of experts, and me for The 28th Forbes Cruise to Health & Wealth, sailing July 29 – August 8, 2017.

We’ve arranged for an incredible journey of 10 magical days cruising from Vancouver to beautiful Alaska and back, with fellow market enthusiasts and a brilliant faculty of top experts. This year, top physicians/experts from the renowned Cleveland Clinic will join us and provide the inside scoop on cutting-edge developments in medicine and what you can do to stay healthy and discover renewed hope for vitality and wellness, no matter what health issues you may be facing now.

As always, our cruise this year will bring you the unique opportunities that only Forbes can provide:

• An outstanding roster of investment and health experts who will share their insights and perspectives with you, both formally during in-depth presentations and Q&A sessions, as well as informally over cocktail receptions and hosted dinners. You will get answers to your most pressing questions and get to know these experts on a first-name basis, along with their specific recommendations for profitable investing strategies and better health.

• A great opportunity to spend time with like-minded friends to exchange ideas, reconnect with old friends you’ve met on previous cruises, and build new friendships, all while discussing the most compelling trends in the markets and in health care.

• Relaxation in six-star luxury with Crystal’s unique blend of style, luxury, and friendly service, which has been compared to being at a retreat, an upscale resort, a country club, and a spa all rolled into one!

• The best value on the high seas—10 days of worldclass gourmet dining, royal service, and Broadway-caliber entertainment, starting at just $4,895 per person, double occupancy.

We’ve reserved prime cabins, the best possible pricing, and we’ll have an extraordinary roster of speakers onboard. So please join us for this extraordinary adventure. Many of our repeat cruisers will tell you there is no better way to combine pleasure and profit than on a Forbes investment seminar cruise!
