Cruising with Gwen and Tina on their Seminar at Sea to Alaska was life changing. Not only did I receive my own workbook with my personal roadmap to menopause success, I developed friendships that will last a lifetime. I was very impressed with the content provided by the Care Providers in the Seminars. Go Menowave.


New York

My first cruise ever was to Alaska with Menowave. I would have never expected such a magnificent time. Every detail was in place. The Seminars at Sea were so informative. I feel incredibly supported by the team at Menowave. It’s a wonderful thing knowing I don’t need to “cruise” through midlife alone. I can’t wait to go on the 2024 Menowave cruises.



The Mexican Riviera Menowave Cruise was life changing for me. Menopause hit me so hard and I felt lost. Because of the friendships I made on the cruise and the coaching from the Menowave team, I now know I have a tribe that will be there with me. I’m not scared anymore about what’s been happening to me. I learned so much in the seminars at sea. Thank you Gwen and Tina and all the wonderful care providers.



I came the whole way from London to join the Menowave cruises to Alaska and Mexico. I have never felt so supported and understood. I learned everything I need to know to “cruise” my Menowave with grace, gratitude, confidence and ease. The Menowave team are professional women who totally get it. Every woman in menopause needs to be on the Menowave sisterhood cruises. Your life will be changed.



I was apprehensive to go on a cruise with other menopausal women but my husband encouraged me to. I’m so glad he did. Not only was I completely enlightened about what’s been going on with me but I now have a complete support system to walk beside me in my menopausal journey. I know I’m not crazy and I know I can do this. I feel like I owe my life to Menowave.



I never thought I was a cruiser until I went on a sisterhood cruise with Menowave. What Gwen and Tina have created is life changing for those of us struggling in midlife. From the friendships I made, to the educational seminars, to the private events on board our ship to the beauty of Alaska, I can say I’m a cruiser now and will join Menowave Cruises every chance I can. I’m not alone on this midlife journey and knowing I have such a strong support system is so comforting to me.
