We’re Going Cruising!

Sometimes things happen to you that you’d never expect and you need to sleep on it for a day or two just to make sure it’s real. You don’t want to say anything because you’re scared you’ll jinx it or reality will set in and you’ll realize it was all a dream.

And then you realize it wasn’t a dream and you want to shout your good news to the world because you can’t stand keeping it inside any longer.

Well, I’ve reached the “shout it from the rooftops” level of excitement and I am so excited to share that my family will be sailing on the high seas with Carnival Cruise Lines  in early 2016!  We will be sailing on the newly re-imagined Carnival Pride from Baltimore to the Bahamas.
Carnival Pride
We were seriously looking into a sailing in February during our kid’s winter break and Carnival was at the top of our list, thanks to their great military discount rates and rave reviews from my friends Carrie and Amanda. So to now be partnering with Carnival for this cruise? It’s pretty much the most amazing thing ever.

I can not wait to share our entire Carnival Pride experience with you. February may seem like a long time from now, but there’s lots to plan and think about before we set sail. Each month, I’m going to share our to-do’s and cruising tips here on the blog and on Instagram.

If there’s anything you want to know about Carnival Cruise Lines or cruising in general be sure to leave a comment or tweet me and I’ll try to answer your questions in an upcoming post.

Disclosure: Our family will be guests of Carnival Cruise Lines this February. I was not required to write this post.

    DUDE! That’s amazing! We’re looking at a cruise in March..I think the kids are finally old enough to be in the “kid area” without freaking. Can’t wait to hear about your experience.

      Yes! The kid’s ages were a huge reason we hadn’t looked into cruising before. They’re finally old enough to appreciate it all and we can get some adults-only time. We are so excited!
