We Booked A Cruise!

We booked our families very first cruise! We will be going on a 7 night Eastern Caribbean cruise with Royal Caribbean!! I am really excited to share with my readers the details of our Royal Caribbean cruise. We will be cruising on the Freedom of the Seas. We booked the cruise last month as soon as the buy one get one half off promotion started. With a family of 5 this was a really great promotion and a great way for us to save money. We chose a promenade family stateroom. The family staterooms are SO wonderful and offer 327 sq ft which is more square foot than a standard stateroom. There will a separate area with bunk beds for the children plus a huge walk in closet that could easily store a stroller plus luggage. The family staterooms also include a mini refrigerator, sleeper sofa and queen sized bed. The children do not know that we are going on a cruise for our family vacation next spring. I am planning a fun reveal once it is closer to the departure time.

Freedom of the Seas

There is so much to do on a Royal Caribbean cruise. I know my three children won't be bored. In addition to the amazing nightly shows, there is a kids only adventure club where parents can drop their children off with counselors to entertain them. There is rock climbing wall, an ice skating rink, miniature golf, Dreamworks Characters on board for a daily parade and meetngreets and there is an amazing H20 Zone. The H20 Zone features a ton of awesome water features for children to play in. We will probably spend everyday here:

My three children are going to LOVE the H20 Zone 

I am going to surprise my girls with the Barbie stateroom decor package. We will be sailing on my daughter's 9th birthday so this will be a super fun way to celebrate her birthday. The Barbie stateroom decor package includes a lot of awesome items including a Barbie doll, Barbie pillow case, Barbie blanket, Barbie bag, 3 Barbie outfits for your new doll, Barbie activity book, Barbie door magnet, chair bow and a lanyard!!! The Barbie stateroom decor package costs $64.99 but in my opinion it is worth it! I am also going to order each of my girls a happy birthday celebration cake which will be delivered at dinner, this is an additional $16.95. Royal Caribbean offers celebration cakes for all occasions. To view the different cakes visit their website

How cute is The Cupcake Cupboard? Royal Caribbean offers a cute cupcake decorating class that I will probably sign up for with my children. 

 I am really excited to choose our excursions. We will be visiting St. Thomas, St. Martin & Coco Cay Bahamas. If you've been on a cruise, comment below what your favorite excursion is.
