As you scroll down, think about this cruise one step at a time and let your excitement build.

First… it's one thing to go on a great cruise…especially in May - the best cruising time of the year…


Second… it's something else again to re-trace the trans-Atlantic crossing of so many of our immigrant ancestors from London to New York City on the classic Queen Mary 2…


Third… it's still another thing to hang out for a couple of days on each end of the cruise, attending the theatre and seeing the sights in both London and NYC, arguably the two greatest cities in the world…


Fourth… it's even beyond that to do it all with Richard and Linda Eyre who were mission presidents in London and long ago a young missionary in New York City…


And fifth… it's something still better to spend the morning of each sea day on the Atlantic in interactive sessions with the Eyres—pondering ideas, strategies and priorities for the Autumn of your Life—for the next 20 years—brainstorming about how to create a LIFE IN FULL—full of adventure, full of contribution, full of family, full of proactive grandparenting—learning the skills and specifics on how to make the golden years the best season of our lives. (See below for the daily program of interactive discussions)

Further detail on the LIFE IN FULL seminar discussions with the Eyres:

Each cruiser will receive the Eyres four latest books two months before sailing and will be able to come aboard with some background and inputs and questions about what will be discussed. Most of you know of Richard and Linda—New York Times #1 bestselling authors whose books have sold in the millions and been translated into more than a dozen languages.


The Eyres have presented to audiences in more than 50 countries—on Parenting, Life-Balance, Marriage and other family and time management topics. You have probably seen them on major TV shows from Oprah to the Today Show or in the regular family segments they once did on CBS This Morning.

But Richard and Linda’s current interest and passion is working with Baby Boomers on strategizing and planning their next 20 years. “65 is the new 45” says Linda, "and we all need a plan to maximize our next two decades, and it needs to include our health, our wealth, our bucket lists, and our grandchildren."

"The best way to come up with this 'Senior Strategy'" says Richard, "is to spend some concentrated brainstorming time with a group of thoughtful peers who are working on the same thing, and to get ideas from each other."

During the Atlantic crossing, the Eyres will lead interactive discussions on topics like:

"'Over the hill' and other outdated clichés"
"How old do you want to live and why?"
"Protecting your health and your wealth."
"The magical word "YET": Why there is still time to do it all."
"Forming a bucket list that makes sense—and that makes contributions."
"Proactive Grandparenting with its joys and its cautions."
"Falling in Love again."

All of the Eyre’s latest four books are targeted at those of us in our 50s, 60s and 70s; and these books (which everyone will receive before the cruise) will serve as the texts and resources for the cruise discussions and will provide the "take-home" value that will allow this LIFE IN FULL cruise to bring about permanent rather than temporary changes in how we live and how much we enjoy it.

Interactive seminars will be held on ship every morning, leaving the afternoons for reflection and recreation.

Cruise Morning One: Introduction to LIFE IN FULL and discussion of the "7 Key Questions:"

  1. How long do you want to live? (Because the number of years you want will likely be a factor in how many you have)
  2. Who do you want to spend those years with (Because the people who matter most should get the most time)
  3. How do you want to look and feel? (Because you have more control over both than you think)
  4. How much money will you will need? (Because though it is not an end, it is a means)
  5. What do you want to keep and what do you want to start (Because that will determine what you discard and what you stop)
  6. Which God do you believe in and which Self do you want to be? (Because both will influence each of the other 6 decisions)
  7. What, and more importantly, who will your legacy be? (Because with that choice will come purpose and joy)

  • Falling in Love Again (with the same person)
  • The Glory of Grandparenting
  • Siblings, cousins and extended families
  • Reconciliation

  • Contrasting models for work and retirement
  • Will our generation save the world?
