Welcome to #CarnivalBreeze

DSC00244 Where to start? This ship is amazing. In the picture above the kids are taking in the Lido and the Sailaway party from Miami as we set sail for the Caribbean. The ten hour flight was soon forgotten, the atmosphere so relaxing that the time difference and jet lag soon melted away. A bit of sunshine and soon we were all relaxed. Continue reading

A family Carnival Cruise holiday – you had just a few questions…

2013-10-251Firstly dear readers, thanks for being so sweet about all our cocktail and sunset laden updates. As you may know, the Alexanders were lucky enough to be chosen as Carnival Cruise Line’s funnest family.

We have just returned from our first cruise, around the Mediterranean on board Carnival Sunshine, for the first 5 days we had a film crew with us which was a real giggle. It was all so utterly amazing I had no idea where to start, however, I know I was unconvinced about cruising before I left, so I thought I would ask my readers and facebook friends to remind me what first timers want to know about cruising. You did not disappoint. Continue reading

Switch on the F.U.N. We’re off cruising! #carnivalfamily

carnival funnest family bannerI can’t believe we are finally off!

Suitcases packed, house sitter in place, severe excitement setting in! Switch on the fun! Last week Carnival published my answers from our application to be their funnest family on their facebook page -I had totally forgotten what I had written – all about a life changing conversation about family life Mr A and I had which prompted me to apply, and so it has made our trip feel even more poignant!

You can read that Post over at Carnival Cruise Lines UK and keep up with our escapades with a daily post or video on Carnival UK’s facebook page and website.

I will be sharing here, on Instagram, Twitter and facebook too. Huge apologies in advance! If it makes you feel better, we have lots of work to do behind the scenes, reviewing, vlogging, photographing, documenting and having a film made about our experiences.
