Can you hold a tree pose on a moving ocean liner? That’s one of the pleasant challenges on this 15th annual themed cruise where outdoor morning yoga sessions offer plenty of fresh sea air and the gentle warmth of the rising Caribbean sun. MSC Cruises’ Divina, a 4,345-passenger ship with an Italian pedigree, becomes a floating holistic health and education center for the trip. Roughly 1,600 participants choose from among 125 lectures and workshops: yoga, plus everything from meditation and Pilates to nutritional topics. Food is a focus, with creative vegan meals (including five-course dinners) prepared by 22 chefs who are especially brought along for the trip. But this is a Caribbean cruise, after all, so there are also on-board parties and shore excursions to shop, swim in tropical waters and explore ports of call in Antigua, St. Kitts, Martinique, St. Maarten, the British Virgin Islands and the Bahamas.
