After a hard day in the conference room, it’s lovely to be able to debrief with friends.

I love to enjoy a cocktail or two and cruise ships have great cocktail bars and talented bar staff.

A great cocktail is a Cosmopolitan – made popular by the program Sex in the City. You can also make it in a large glass with heaps of ice and a bit of soda water if you’re looking for a thirst quencher.

How to:

  • 45mL Vodka

  • 15mL Cointreau

  • 30mL Cranberry Juice

  • Squeeze of Fresh Lime

    Fill a Boston glass with ice
    Add all the ingredients
    Shake & strain into a chilled cocktail glass
    Garnish with a slice of citrus or flame an orange zest


There are heaps of things to do on a cruise ship once the Conference sessions for the day have ended. You can go for a lovely walk, indulge in a relaxing spa experience, plan your entertainment activities for the evening, or indulge yourself by laying on a deck chair and reading a good book.

CPD is the means by which members of the Nursing profession maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge, expertise and competence, and develop the personal and professional qualities needed throughout their professional lives. A CPD Conference Cruise provides a great conference experience.
