Last year I took my very first cruise with my husband. We rarely go on holidays without our kids and had the opportunity to cruise for the first time aboard the Carnival Conquest with Carnival Cruise Line. We’d often thought about taking a cruise but were a bit worried about what was all involved; I suppose it’s the unknown that holds you back sometimes. We had such an amazing time that we knew we wanted to take our kids and are excited to be taking the whole family cruising next month.
If you’ve wondered about whether or not you should book a cruise for a vacation, I’m telling you that you will likely find it will be your first of many. To help you decide, read my First Time Cruise Tips for Couples and follow along on the #LetsGOCarnival hashtag from July 9th to 16th when we’re aboard the Carnival Magic. We’re joining several other bloggers and their families at the Let’s GO! Retreat with SJ Consulting.
We’ll be boarding the retreat on the Carnival Magic for a 7 Day Western Caribbean from Port Canaveral where family bonding and exploring the many amenities the cruise ship has to offer. Networking with fellow influencers with a view like this can’t really be called work; Carnival makes it possible with a solid wifi connection so work can be done on board, although, I recommend having fun instead.
Between the vast age differences of our kids from toddler to teen, Carnival has something for everyone. My husband and I are looking for quality time together enjoying the various shows at the Showtime Theatre, a little spa time at the Cloud 9 Spa and delicious food; we heard Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse is a must-have. For the kids, Camp Ocean, Circle “C” and Club O2 has all the ages covered for complete entertainment in a safe and secure environment.
