Set Sail

On this week last year, I was sailing away on a Caribbean cruise. I've mentioned before that this was one of the best weeks of college, and for good reason. 18 of us headed to Ft. Lauderdale, where we sailed to Belize and Cozumel. To say we had fun would be an understatement, and SW and I definitely have spring-fever/vacation fever/warm fever, as we've been perusing the Royal Caribbean website quite a bit these days.

If you're wanting to take a little vacay, but can't decide where to go, a cruise may be a great option. We chose Royal Caribbean, and though I don't have another large cruise to compare it too, my friends who did said it was the best yet. I did do a river cruise through Europe which was absolutely incredible, but a completely different experience.

Reasons to go on a cruise:
  1. You get to see a variety of places, depending on how long your cruise is.
  2. There are fun options at every stop. In Cozumel, a group of us went on a catamaran before going snorkeling. Such a fun experience. 
  3. You have a built in reservation every night. The people around us probably hated us, but we had a great time at our two tables. 
  4. If you love food, a cruise is the place for you. Great meals starting early in the morning until late at night.
  5. You get to drink pretty drinks. All. Day. Long.
  6.  Happy hour is every hour.
  7. There are multiple pools and hot tubs to choose from.
  8. Like action? Don't worry, there may just be a surfing pool.
  9. Who doesn't like karaoke?
  10. You have a gorgeous view at any time of day.
  11. Don't worry about getting seasick -- there were very rough seas and high winds the first day, but the cruise is very accommodating, offering Dramamine and other medicines to calm you down.

While I love any kind of vacation, this cruise was definitely a highlight. I've been lucky enough to visit a lot of beautiful places, and while nothing beats a beach side chair at the Atlantis in the Bahamas, a cruise is most a fun option as well, and it was a trip that none of us wanted to leave.

Set sail!



  1. I've been on a few cruises and have to agree that it's a great way to see a lot of different places for a great price!! I'm really interested in doing a Mediterranean cruise - that would be so much fun!

  2. This looks like so much fun!! I've only been on one cruise in high school with my family so I'm dying to do another one. I remember our first day/night we had really rough seas too and at our dinner plates were little packets of dramamine! Haha

  3. I think cruising is one of the best ways to vacation. We are going on a Mediterranean cruise this summer and I can't wait! Bring on the delicious drinks poolside. Also, I’m having a little giveaway if you want to check it out! Also, I’m having a little giveaway if you want to check it out! Celebration Giveaway

  4. I've never been on a cruise but it seems like you had a lot of fun! I just get scared after seeing all the bad stuff about them in the news, but I do hear the food is amazing (which is one of the most important things!)

  5. We are going on another one in September, & I can not WAITTTT!

  6. I have never been on a cruise. It is one of the thinks on my bucket list.
