Celebrating Life's Transitional Seasons

Gwen Harris and Tina McDermott ...
The Dynamic Menopause Duo

Gwen and Tina are on a mission to inspire women to “cruise” the Menowave with grace, gratitude, confidence and ease. It all started in 2013 when out of menopausal despair, Gwen formed the Menopause Support Group seeking answers. Five years later, Gwen and the group were featured on Good Morning America.

In 2018, Tina joined Gwen in her inspirational pursuit and they started hosting cruises for women within their Menopause sisterhood. The cruises offer worthwhile travelling experiences that inspire, educate, encourage, and build strong relationships among our sisterhood in over 120 countries around the world. We are a community of accomplished women eager to have fun together while marking a significant milestone during our menopausal journeys.

Our vision is to globally change the imprint for women feeling invisible through education, inspiration and a loving supportive community. 

Our special interest cruises will carry forth this vision with the support of our council of experts who have joined our team.

Gwen’s Brilliant Idea

The Menopause Support Group has grown to over 50,000 women located in over 120 countries around the world. This is a closed group for women to share their woes about life's transitional seasons in a safe space, where they will be encouraged, inspired and not feel "SO ALONE."

Being a first time "cruiser", I didn't know what to expect from this cruise.  Also, despite the amount of public speaking I do, I am a bit of an introvert and was a little nervous to go alone, in fear I may hibernate in my cabin.

Well nothing could've been farther from that fear.  I am so glad I didn't invite my boyfriend because it meant I could go do and be with the AMAZING women I made that I now and honored to call "friend".  

Although my cabin was clean, quiet and spacious,  I spent very little time in it and lots of time exploring the ports with the girls, evenings out dancing, learning new kitchen hacks at the on-board America's Test Kitchen (what can I say, I'm a nutrition coach😀) and we even played BINGO one afternoon!

And although our destination was majestic in a way that only Mother Nature herself can deliver, the highlights were the interactions with other women.

At first, we all did a nice job at making good first impressions.  Then the  breakout sessions and activities that Gwen Harris planned for our Menopause Support Group were remarkable.  

 A couple private cocktail parties helped break the ice, as did the dining arrangements.  Don't even get me started on the food.  

Our expert panel did a fabulous job at explaining the science behind meno symptoms and natural ways to relieve them. 
Our very own Anjl Rodee, pulled out all the stops with our therapeutic painting (champagne) party, then an evening of comedy and connection as she entertained us with her hilarious menopause parody songs played on the Ukulele.  We laughed until we cried (or peed ourselves a little).

But the daily laps around the deck, the spontaneous chips and salsa at midnight on the Lido deck and the amazing stories my sisters had the courage to share over a private cup of tea, or breakfast, was the magic.  I took the time to be available to my sisters, to be vulnerable, authentic and introspective.  I let my hair down and my guard down and I returned from this trip feeling whole, and I didn't even know I was feeling broken.   

I booked my cabin for the next cruise as soon as I got back and cannot wait to meet YOU!
