Bon Voyage!

It’s crazy to think that this cruise happened a year ago. I know, I know… I am super late and long overdue with these travel blogs, but I think now would be the best time to share these with you since I just launched this lifestyle and travel-focused blog. Plus, it wouldn’t hurt to share these photos and videos that are stored away in my external hard drive and let it collect (virtual) dust. Right? So, here’s a snippet of my journal entry while I was onboard the ship, some photos, and a vlog of my experience from the day I went on a cruise ship for my first time ever.

Here lies everything I need to know about this cruise 😊


This was our cruise stateroom. We were on the Emerald Deck.

We finally boarded the ship last night! Right when we checked in our bags, and our names were called to get on the ship, Shannon and I were guided to our rooms. After we took a quick look at where we would be living for the next few days, we walked around to get to know where everything is. We walked the entire ship until the all-you-can-eat dining areas finally opened. We ate dinner, met an adorable couple from Quebec, and went back to our rooms to get ready for the emergency drill. Shannon and I didn’t realize how tired we were. We knocked out right after the drill and totally slept in this morning.

Thank you Princess Cruises for being the best!

lots of virtual hugs 💙
