Royal Caribbean International, the largest global cruise brand, and CruiseOne - Gerber & Associates, experts in both group and individual cruise sailings, join forces and host the 2012 Cruise for Diabetes to raise money in support of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The 7-night cruise to the Bahamas Islands will leave from the Port of Baltimore on March 31, 2012. Participants must register to attend by July 24, 2011.
WHAT:   Cruise for Diabetes on the Royal Caribbean Enchantment of the Seas
WHERE:   Baltimore, MD – Port Canaveral, FL – Nassau and Coco Cay, Bahamas
WHEN:   March 31 – April 7, 2012

WHO:   The Cruise for Diabetes is hosted by Royal Caribbean International and   CruiseOne - Gerber & Associates. Sponsors include Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Howard Magazine, Dubois Design, Maryland Family Magazine, Sign Central, Inc., J4 Promotional Marketing.

WHY:   The Cruise for Diabetes is an effort to raise greater awareness for juvenile diabetes. Diabetes is the name given to disorders in which the body has trouble regulating its blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels.  Juvenile diabetes is also known as insulin-dependent diabetes, a disorder of the body’s immune system – that is, its system for protecting itself from viruses, bacteria or any “foreign” substances.  The cruise will raise money to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and provide the opportunity for travelers to connect with other juvenile diabetes patients, gain support and encouragement from the JDRF community, and attend educational sessions provided by JDRF staff and volunteers. Most importantly, the cruise is meant for families to enjoy time together during spring break 2012, all while supporting a worthy cause.

BACKGROUND:   The Cruise for Diabetes was created by Renee and Michael Gerber of CruiseOne - Gerber & Associates. In October 2010, the Gerbers’ daughter, Ashleigh, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.  In the short time since her diagnosis, the Gerbers have come to appreciate and understand what it takes to live a happy and productive Diabetic life.  Ashleigh has done a fantastic job with the adjustment.
The Gerbers wanted to find a way to give back to the JDRF for all of the hard work and research that is done on a daily basis to support the cause.  From this, the Diabetes Fund Raising Cruise was created. The Gerbers hope to raise enough money to make a difference and find a cure.
