2014 Grand Vacation Cruise Recap

Ever wish you could go on a week long vacation to an exotic place and pay nothing for it?  Well, I did JUST that and I am dying to share it all with you too!!

WOW – that basically sums up all last week… I had every intention of posting this recap yesterday, however when I woke up yesterday I still felt like I was on the ship, LOL!! I was battling a bout of Vertigo, probably cause by dehydration while on the ship.  See if you don’t already know, I am SUPAH CHEAP and water isn’t free on the ship- they charge for water bottles and I drink about 90 oz a day, but not last week- JAJAJAJA!!

I am feeling WAY more normal today, after drinking my weight in H2O yesterday SO all is good.  I am dying to share some highlights from the FAB trip that I returned from too, let’s get started!

This is a MASSIVE SHIP!!

First I have to share the digs we had all week… pretty nice place to crash, I was expecting it to be MUCH smaller… they saved that for the bathroom, LOL!!

This promenade was filled with restaurants, shops, and so many cool things… it was a hard place to focus for someone with ADD, LOL!!

The Promenade…

Then it was outside to the BOARDWALK… complete with a carousel and all.

Boardwalk view to the top.

They had an ice sculpture the first night… I did my mentoring duties of teaching Erica’s kids what you do with an ice sculpture… needless to say she limited the exposure of me with her kids, never figured out why…

Leading by example… you can’t see it, but Addie is TOTALLY copying me- it;s hilarious!!

The kid section was awesome… mostly cause everything was big enough for a 40 yr old kid to play inside…
