A cruise just for us!
The AIP Cruise is a beautiful partnership that combines chef curated meals with the AIP touch, as well as education and fellowship with our AIP Community.
About the Sailing Experience
The AIP Cruise Team are committed to providing a spectacular experience on the AIP Cruise.
From curated menus, to a dedicated AIP Dining Room on the ship Independence of the Seas and exclusive activities for AIP Cruisers, we believe the AIP Cruise will be the perfect vacation experience for autoimmune patients practicing the AIP Protocol and their families.
Meet our Travel Advisor
Rita M. Perez, CTA, MCC
Rita started her travel agency, RitaVentures, LLC, three years after her Hashimoto's diagnosis in 2007. She specializes in working with change making leaders to champion their missions on cruise ship retreats.
Despite having been diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease, Rita never experienced such extreme disease symptoms as she did in the second half of 2020. On her journey to get her health back on track, she discovered the autoimmune protocol (AIP), and quickly wondered how her two worlds of health and travel would be able to coexist with such stringent requirements.
In January 2021, she was able to receive more clarity on AIP after attending the AIP Summit. She then reached out to her support at Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and found that they were more than equipped to handle the challenge of bringing an AIP Cruise to life.
