A Marriage Retreat Cruise to Improve Communication in Your Relationship

Sometimes we get wrapped up in the stress of raising the kids, pressures of work and living…and unintentionally neglect the relationship that should always be a priority. We can’t forget to nurture the sacred relationship of marriage and work to improve it whenever we can. This is your chance to reconnect with your husband or wife while getting away to the island of Bermuda to enjoy some much needed time together.

…sometimes it’s difficult to remember what it was like when we first fell in love…and maybe even why we fell in love and the special moments we’ve shared together for years.

We might event start feeling like roommates instead of soulmates like we used to. When we let ourselves surrender to our daily routines instead of each other we can start to grow apart, causing intimacy problems and maybe even resentment toward one another.

Renew your commitments to one another at Our Getting the Love You Want Couples Cruise featuring marriage counseling by experienced Imago Relationship Therapists.

Make time to work on the state of your “union”. Marriage maintenance is needed in nearly all relationships at some time. Come work on your marriage with us on a 7 day roundtrip cruise to Bermuda from New Jersey!

If you feel the same way, (especially after covid!) and you’d like to renew your commitment to each other, fall back in love, reawaken old feelings and truly experience joy together again, ask us about the Getting the Love You Want Caribbean couples cruise.

Coronavirus notwithstanding, you can’t wait to work on your marriage until it’s dry and depleted…

That’s why we’ve planned a safe couples therapy getaway for you, with multiple Covid19 safety precautions, so that you don’t need to wait and can getaway now to do much needed work together.

Join us in 2023 for a Marriage Retreat Getaway Cruise!

We won’t have counseling the whole time, you’ll have plenty of time to recharge and renew both your physical body, mind, and spirit while strengthening your marriage bond. Therapy will be work, but by the last few days you’re both going to experience a romantic couples getaway that wasn’t possible before imago therapy. You’ll be completely reconnected, communicate effectively and productively with your spouse, and both of you will enjoy the cruise so much more!

Sign you and your spouse up for this journey together to become better partners for each other and improve your communication and understanding of one another.

Spend a weekend recommitting to your #couplegoals and actually achieve and create a beautiful future for your relationship together! An imago marriage counseling cruise from New Jersey to Bermuda might be just what you need to put the spark back in your marriage.

Text, Call or Register now to book a room for you and your spouse on our Bermuda couples cruise this summer!
