Are you a fan of breathtaking scenery? Would you like to see Bill & Lois' house where the 12 X 12 was written?

Would you like great information about how and why the 12-steps work and instruction on meditation on a trip with breathtaking scenery and friends in recovery?


Breathe in the brisk New England air in Bar Harbor as you stroll along the quaint streets to visit Abbe Museum and learn about the native Wabanaki people. Then head to Thunder Hole to see the seas serve up some sonic booms. In Halifax, scale Nova Scotia's Citadel Hill for a stroll through history before taking a walking tour through the Public Gardens. When in New York, see why this city never sleeps by sipping an espresso at Café Abraço or catching a Broadway show in the Theater District.

The Itinerary:




September 8, 2019 - Embark the Escape in

New York, New York 4:00 pm Departure

Everyone loves New York and there are a million reasons why. Here are but a few: the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, the Ellis Island National Monument, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, Times Square, Broadway, Greenwich Village, 5th Avenue and Central Park.

September 9, 2019 - Day at Sea + Conference

Enjoy your day at sea. The conference will be available as scheduled.



September 10, 2019 - Bar Harbor, Maine

This coastal attraction has retained much of its charm since its glory days of the 1900s, when America's elite vacationed here in opulent summer cottages. Surrounding the rock-bound harbor is the world-famous Acadia National Park where the opulence of nature is on display.


September 11, 2019 - Portland, Maine

Portland offers all the amenities of a big city: art districts, a vibrant waterfront, museums, parks and diverse shopping opportunities. But within minutes, you can be enjoying the view from an historic lighthouse or tasting a juicy, local lobster.



September 12, 2019 - Halifax, Nova Scotia

Admire the rugged coastline that surrounds Halifax, the world's second-largest natural harbor. This beautifully preserved city is Nova Scotia's capital and was founded in 1749. Take steps through history and climb to The Citadel to witness the Old Town Clock.



September 13, 2019 - Saint John, Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick

Saint John's history is evident in its weather-worn look, passing the tests of salt air, sea winds and a devastating fire that have all contributed to making Saint John the greatest little city in the east. Be sure to look for your ship in the port against the beauty of the Bay of Fundy from Fort Howe lookout.


September 14, 2019 - Day at Sea + Conference

Enjoy your day at sea. The conference will be available as scheduled.



September 15, 2019 - 7:00 am Disembark in

About The Speaker:


Herbert Kaighan, B.A.


Herb was given the gift of freedom from alcohol February 21, 1984. As the result of the application of the Twelve Steps as contained  precisely" in the AA Big Book he experienced a profound spiritual awakening in 1988. Since then he has been very involved in carrying the message of recovery through presentations, facilitating workshops, and leading retreats. 
          He has authored:
"Twelve-Step Guide to Using the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Book" (2004)
"Twelve Steps to Spiritual Awakening; Enlightenment for Everyone" (2010)
"Practicing the Here and Now: Being Intentional with Step 11" (2017)
Many have found them helpful for accessing the instructions and confirming the actual process contained in the Big Book for experiencing and sustaining a spiritual awakening.
Herb was married 52 years (widowed March, 2018), has three adult children, seven grandchildren, and lives in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
His personal journey includes seven years in seminary, a graduate education in psychology, and a 40+ year career in human resources consulting, from which he retired in November 2006.
He has conducted workshops on a variety of topics for the LA Department of Mental Health Clergy Academy and St. John's Seminary in Camarillo, Calif.
