I feel like such a dud because I live on the Gulf Coast, less than an hour from the Galveston TX cruise port and I have never ever been on a cruise. My husband and I actually talked about taking Leandra and Tevin (my last kiddos at home) on a cruise instead of having a Christmas celebration this year. That’s all still up in the air, so when I had the opportunity to join Brandcation for a cruise, I was all in for it. Especially since its the day after my birthday.
If you remember I have actually attended 2 Brandcation events in the past. The first one was Bloggers on Burbon in New Orleans in 2010 and the second one was in Kissimmee Florida also in 2010. I had a blast at both Brandcation events and plan to do the same at this one.
This time 40 bloggers will be boarding the Royal Caribbean Ship Liberty of the Seas leaving out of Ft Lauderdale Florida and heading to Cozumel. The event is hosted by Brandfluential and MomDot, from April 3rd through April 7th.
I will be leaving on April 2nd and coming home on April 8th. Since my birthday is April 1st, I will be celebrating the entire time and sharing my trip with you on my Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. You can keep up with the fun by following the #seastheday hashtag.
I am planning to have a ton of fun. And I will share some great information with you. I’ll show you what I pack, share everything I do, and write a ton of follow up posts. I plan on parasailing and riding 4-wheelers in the sand dunes. Not too sure about snorkeling. When Leandra and I went snorkeling in the Florida Keys I quickly found out that I was afraid of the underwater creatures.
Since this will be my first time on a cruise, out of the country and all that good stuff, if you have any tips for me, please let me know, I will take heed! I need all the recommendations on everything from what to wear to excursions to do. I don’t know what I am more excited about. Being able to live a few days by the pool, hanging out with bloggy friends, or sipping a drink in the beach in Mexico.
