About

The upcoming 2022 cruise will be my 8th year doing this annual event. This is a full paralegal conference combined with an amazing tropical vacation adventure. It’s so much fun and nothing like any other paralegal conference you’ll go to… Will there be CLE? YES! Will there be super fun and unique social opportunities as well? Also YES!

So first let’s talk about the cruise … It’s an amazing cruise adventure… You can click on Explore the Ship to learn more about the ship, and click on Cabins to check out the different cabin options. You can also click on Destinations to learn more about the tropical places we will visit during our trip. It is everything that a first class tropical cruise should be.. fun, sun, adventure, excursions, amazing entertainment, so many meals and restaurant options, fruity drinks (or wine or whatever you prefer) and so much more.

Next, let’s add in a paralegal conference – but a super fun one!!

Will there be classes? Yes! Classes will be held on sea days and you’ll enjoy them. Don’t feel like coming to classes? You don’t have to come! It’s totally optional. YOU get to design the trip YOU want to have. Pick and choose the classes you want to attend, and skip the rest. You’ll find that our classes are unique in that most of our speakers are paralegals who excel in their fields (not attorneys who don’t always speak the same language or don’t always understand how we “do” what we do….) … they are also passionate about their topics… You’ll find them to be educational and you’ll take something away from them, they aren’t full of fluff.  You’ll also find a super relaxed environment for learning and socializing. Don’t bring your suit (well, if you want to, you can) … but, we encourage vacation wear… come as you are… come ready to learn while you enjoy yourself.

Will there be social events? You betcha!! We will have an amazing social networking cocktail party on the first and last night… We will also have other fun events including “cocktails and coloring” where you’ll bring a cocktail, hang out and make some new friends and just chat a while… (if you knit or prefer to do some other relaxing hobby while you hang out, bring that as well!!)… There will be group dinners, happy hours, and even a private wine tasting and martini tasting (there is a small fee for the wine tasting and martini tasting outside of the event registration fee due to extra fees charged by the ship for those)…

On the two island days, you’ll be free to spend your day however you want, we may have a little social activity or two for people with no plans, but you’ll head off the ship and have an amazing time.. you can even get together with other paralegals to go on excursions… (I’m going to the caves!)

Who can come? Well, YOU! If you are a paralegal, a legal assistant, a legal secretary, a receptionist – you get the picture.. (shhh, even attorneys can come!!)… students are also welcome… You are also encouraged to bring friends and family members… bring it a girlfriend, a sister in law, bring your mom (my husband, mom and dad come every year)… bring your partner and your kids, or, leave the kids at home and bring the hubby and make it a romantic getaway, or leave them all at home and take a much needed girls trip…  Everyone who comes does need to register, but friends and family who are not in the legal field can register for a reduced fee (this is because the cruiseline does charge us for each person even if they don’t attend CLE etc, plus we host each person as our special guest, even if they aren’t a paralegal)…

This event is hosted by me personally, you do not need to be registered or certified to come… You don’t need to be a member of a specific association or in fact any association, you don’t need to report CLE either…

Worried about being alone? You won’t be. About half of our attendees come “alone” but you’ll never be alone… (unless you want to be lol) You’ll have access to a private Facebook group to meet fellow attendees before the cruise, and we will make sure you have tons of fun… You’ll make friendships that will last forever…. People pair up for dinners.. they pair up for excursions etc… You won’t be lonely or alone unless you prefer to be…

Also, will there be goodies? YES! I think some people just sign up for the goodie bag, it’s a lot of fun…
