Mission Statement

Founded in 1992, the National Professionals Network (NPN) is an international association of multidisciplinary professionals who annually sail the globe. Our mission is to share unique business and professional expertise, while networking and vacationing in extraordinary environments. Every year, 500 professionals, historically 60% single and 40% couples, from 65 major cities internationally and 30 different disciplines, sail together and share this extraordinary and exclusively unique experience. You, too, are cordially invited to join the annual NPN Leadership Summit & Music Festival at Sea.


The Floating Forum

NPN will provide you with Howard University accredited “Sailing to Success” seminars, hosted by Education at Sea in the morning, and fantastic comedy and concerts, hosted by Entertainment at Sea, every night.

The Cultural Celebration

“Legend in Our Own Time” is the annual theme for the NPN Evening of International Elegance, a show-stopping celebration of our diverse cultural heritage in native attire. It is highlighted by the shipboard presentation of the NPN Living Legend Awards to outstanding leaders or organizations with a demonstrated history of commitment to the culturally diverse community.
