So I have a little favour to ask you…
Nick and I have booked a Cruise!
After a lot of deliberating we decided that this would be the most suitable holiday for all our family this year so we decided to just go for it. You can read about why we have chosen this holiday here.
Neither of us have ever been on a cruise before so the whole experience will be completely new. We have chosen a 14 day Royal Caribbean Cruise around the Mediterranean. We will be visiting Gibralter, Barcelona, Nice, Rome, Valencia, Malaga and Cadiz.
We want to pack in as much as we can on our days at port with lots of sight seeing, obviously we will be doing all this with a 1 year old in tow. We want to get it right so that everyone is happy and has a wonderful holiday.
This is where you come in, I’d like to ask for your help. Have you been to any of these places? Do you have any tips, advice or even any links to posts on any of these countries? I love getting advice from people who’ve already visited; You find out some great hidden treasures.
Have you been cruising before? Particularly with a toddler, any tips and tricks to make it run smoothly?
Thank you in advance, You da best! If you’d like to email me instead you can do so here.
What are your holiday plans this year?

Rome is busy but so historic. If you plan to go to the colosseum book the tickets in advance online as it can save you queuing for ages. Have a fabulous time. I'm on a road trip to New Orleans, Memphis and Nashville!

Oh wow! That will be wonderful. I'd love to do that one day, in a mustang! Thank you so much for the tips. We will definitely be booking ahead any trips in Rome as time will be short! X

Ahh I've been cursing but always around the Caribbean! It is the most amazing way to travel and visit places, I would love to do a European one! H x

I've never been to any of these places, but i would love to go on a cruise to the Caribbean! A cruise in the Mediterranean sounds amazing! I can't wait to hear all about your holiday! xx
Sarah Cantwell6th March 2016 at 5:45 PM
Yes we thought about the Caribbean but you have to fly to most of those so we thought a Mediterranean one would be better with a toddler. I'm hoping to vlog it all xx

Rome is beautiful, the Vatican and the Colosseum are wonderful. Book tickets for the Colosseum as it saves queuing. Also eat Gelato and lots of it! Food is expensive so try save where you can. Barcelona is also beautiful, look out for all the wonderful mosaics that line the streets.
Sarah Cantwell6th March 2016 at 5:50 PM
Oh Becky. You have got me all excited! I can't wait to see those places. We will be planning our trips before we get there as time will be tight and we want to do as much gelato eating as poss! Xx

I can't help with advice on what to do in those beautiful places, however I have great things about Royal Caribbean Cruises. I look forward to hearing how you got on.

I feel like I have advice to share!! We went on a cruise last year with Penelope round the Italian Med. It was amazing!! I blogged about our trip too. I'd love to talk to you about anything you want to know xx

That sounds like so much fun! I've never been on a cruise but I think it sounds like a great idea with a toddler and have been looking at them too! xx
