If this photo is any indication of how our trip was you know it wasn’t the best vacation we’ve had. In fact it may have been the worst one, but we are all safe and sound. We did not see Bermuda on this trip, but a huge shoutout to our Captain on @carnival for choosing to keep us safe. Rumor was they were fined for not going in, but as a mom I cannot thank them enough for keeping us safe.⠀
We’ve gone through a hurricane before and it was rough but this was miserable. None of us have ever dealt with motion sickness, but we were all miserable. We heard beds were flying on the lower decks and people ended up sleeping on the Lido deck because it was so bad. We were on the 11th floor yet felt the pounding of the waves. We hit 18’ swells for about 18 hours. Y’all it was rough. But everyone was troopers and we spent time with family. For almost a solid 24 hours we could do almost nothing. ⠀
Then the Captain announced we could not go into Bermuda. I wanted to cry but I knew he was keeping us safe. We later found out other ships went in and had limited power. So it was truly for the best. And kudos to Carnival for giving us 100% credit towards another cruise. ⠀
As for the person the Coast Guard rescued, we are 🙏🏻 they are doing well. We heard it may have been a pregnant mom who had her baby, but it was all just rumors flying. It was however a crew member, so wishing them the very best. ⠀
We have some good memories and laughs from this trip though. ⠀
~two unnamed children clogged the toilet and left the plumber the funniest note along with some cash.⠀
~kids who tried squid, calamari, mussels, and rabbit.⠀
~a kid who then broke out in a rash from eating one of those foods.⠀
~flying all over the deck-literally 🤪⠀
So who wants to join us on the next cruise? 😂😂⠀

You have to step out of your comfort zone. Be broke for a long time. Lose the people that don't believe in you. Work hard. Have some sleepness nights. And learn to believe in yourself. 🛳🙊😍🚢⚓ #mondaythoughts#workplustravels#cruiselife
And away we go. I mentioned to Charlie that almost the moment we started sailing, I just felt the weight of the world left off of me. There’s something about both literally and metaphorically leaving everything behind as you had for open waters can be very freeing.
Dining at #palo on a Disney Cruise is an amazing experience reserved for those 18 and over. It's a multi course food extravaganza with amazing touches from your server to the plating! #disneycruisetips reserve your dinner on the #dcl app prior to sailing for your prime dining time choices!
A #foodies dream!

Save the date! Next Tuesday, September the 24th, the Queen Mary 2 will make a stop in Hamburg and we have a very special event organised for all of you. Our dear friend Stephen Payne ( @navalarch2 - the naval architect responsible for the design and construction of the QM2) is traveling aboard the ship and will be visiting the museum again. This time, he will be giving his lecture "Genesis of a Queen" at 3 pm CET on deck 2 of the museum. Attending the lecture is included in the regular entrance fees to the museum. For those among you that can't be at the event in person, we will be streaming it live on Instagram. Join us as we learn how and why the actual Queen of the Oceans was built. It is surely going to be a great experience. We would like to thank Stephen Payne for kindly giving us all this opportunity, and also @cunardline Hamburg for their support.
The museum has several models of the QM2 on display. Certainly the most spectacular one is this over 7 meters long diorama of the Queen at the Dock 17 of Blohm + Voss. It is built in a scale of 1:50, using Legos exclusively. The diorama is on permanent display on deck 1 of the museum.
