Mike's so busy, that we can't get a good picture of him standing still, so Sean Connery will have to suffice as his body-double for now.

Is this Legit?
What is the deposit needed to book now?
The current deposit needed to secure your reservation is just $250 per person. This secures your cruise reservation only. Once you have secured your reservation here, our travel planning team will be in touch with you to confirm all the details as well as timelines on the remaining balance. Sooner rather than later, you should submit your session payment of $300, either by check or credit card (more information on how/where to pay can be found a the "How to Book" section.
Is my deposit refundable in case I need to cancel?
What if my spouse or significant other (S.O.) is not an agent?
The education investment of your cruise rate is only applicable to you and not your spouse or S.O. Space-permitting, your spouse/S.O. can choose to attend the session with you (please reach out to us very early to confirm if this is what you want so we ensure that we have enough space for everyone). Please do not bring your spouse and your girlfriend/boyfriend to the same session, as this will not be tolerated.
Do I need to attend all the sessions?
The short answer here is no. You can attend one, two, three, or all four. You will receive CE credit (where applicable) for only those classes you attend and sign-in for; but if you wake up one morning on and decide that being poolside seems more exciting than being in class, that is your prerogative. We promise we will not be offended :)

Is this a tax write-off?
We are definitely not accountants. However, when I attend a conference or other education program anywhere in the world, I make sure to reflect my expenses on my returns. Your mileage may vary. Talk to your accountant to be sure of your eligibility, but with an education or networking or tour program nearly every day of our itinerary, we don't see this as being a big hurdle to clear.
Can I attend just for the sessions?
Absolutely. Currently we have Continuing Education Approval in Minnesota and Iowa. We are working on additional states. If you want to simply sit in on a portion of any session then you are welcome to do so, but to be courteous to your fellow attendees we ask that you only enter and exit sessions during a break.
You do not need to attend all sessions, just attend what you want and earn CE (if applicable) for those sessions.
If you have an entourage that you will be bringing with from a state other than the above, we can work on CE approval for your state. Just let us know. We will update the above section as we get more CE approvals.
I'm a returning cruiser. Do I get anything?
Yes of course! We love our returning cruisers. You can take $100 off of your session fee. No codes needed, it's done!
