Residents treated to cruise experience at home!

Residents treated to cruise experience at home!

by Tom Martin (January 2021)

Residents at the Athena Healthcare Group have been treated to a cruise experience at home!

The locals were taken on a brief break from the icy British weather by enjoying a journey of culture, sun and imagination, all without leaving the building!

Across the lodges, residents boarded the ‘Athena Liners’ that took them to a range of beautiful locations across the globe, from Cuba to Jamaica and Spain to Italy, to name but a few.

As the ‘liners’ set sail, residents enjoyed a range of relaxing and engaging activities such as dining at the ‘captain’s table’, pamper sessions in their in-home salon, quizzes and games with fellow passengers and a spot of shopping in 'duty-free’. 

After the boat docks, residents had the opportunity to try the local cuisine and learn more about the country's history and culture whilst also enjoying afternoons of music, song and dance.
