 Founders of Journey To Wellness – A Retreat at Sea


Faye Weissblum

President of TravelGroup International, Inc. TravelGroup Int. is a very prestigious and respected travel agency. Travelgroup’s focus for the past 20 years has been in booking and producing large group theme cruises. This focus has allowed Faye and her staff to develop very strong bonds within the cruise industry. These relationships and reputation have resulted in extra care and attention for all her groups.

Having personally escorted many of these groups and cruising for weeks at a time, Faye thought that there was a void in the Cruise experience. The days at sea just seemed to lose their appeal for herself and for many of her clients. Too much overload on food, too many mundane activities that lacked interest, exercise classes that were “very basic” and “primitive”.

Faye wanted something more exciting and meaningful for her guests. “What if we could develop a program that would be educational, healthy, fun and help you come back from a cruise vacation invigorated and in better shape than when you left?”

Through divine intervention, Faye met Donna Haybarger.


Donna Haybarger

Donna is a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach, Holistic and Raw Food Chef and Author of “Eating for Energy and Longevity”.

Donna knows how to live a healthy lifestyle and she’s turned that knowledge into Way2Wellness, a health coaching company that focuses on teaching people how to make meaningful and healthy lifestyle changes.

Donna has designed proven methods to help her clients make important changes. Her programs encourage both healthy eating and adopting a lifestyle that discourage the development of disease. She shows her clients how easy it is to make healthy lifestyle choices. Donna uses “Replacement Therapy” to teach others how to replace foods and lifestyle choices with healthier, more beneficial options that they will enjoy.

When Donna’s friends, family and clients spend time with her they often comment on how easy it is to eat healthy, exercise and feed the mind, body and soul. This got Donna thinking – “what if I could have them with me for a week…..what kind of an impact could I make…. what if I could have dozens of them with me for a week…. on a retreat?”

Voi-la a magical team was formed with Faye and Donna creating The Journey To Wellness – A Retreat at Sea.
This extraordinary cruise is dedicated to enriching your life through health and wellness activities all while enjoying a fun-filled escape with like-minded people.
