Preparing for our Next Family Adventure: A Cruise

We are getting ready to go on our first cruise with a kid! It’s a 10 day trip on Princess Cruise lines and we are going through the Panama Canal. I’m so excited! We haven’t been on a cruise in a long time, maybe 10 years or so.

The cruise was a gift from Grandma. My grandfather passed away last year and she wanted to get the family together. My half brother and sister will also be there and I’ve only met them once before, several years ago, so it’s also a family reunion of sorts. (and that’s a story for another day, lol)

I thought it would be neat to commemorate the trip, so I had these cute ornaments made by – 

So PLEASE share your cruise tips with me! Got a blog post to share? Even better. Post it in the comments and I’ll check it out. I need all the tips I can get. 🙂

  1. Sorry, I don’t have any tips for you but I do wish you a phenomenal time! We’ve never gone on a cruise but are thinking of going on the Disney cruise for my older daughters 15th birthday. It’s a few years away, so we hope to start saving soon. Haha! Because you know, the size of my tribe and all! 😏😂😊


  2. I hope you have a great time! My parents do cruises all the time and always come back with funny stories. I guess a good solid tip I learned from their cruise adventures is to pack appropriately. I guess they took a trip to Alaska and my parents, who have only lived in hot climate, packed for Antarctica. It turns out Alaska is not as cold as they thought and had to buy light jackets during their trip which costs more for tourists if you end up having to buy them at a gift shop. LOL


    • I need to find out what the weather is like in Panama! I am just assuming hot lol. But that’s what I thought my first time in CA and I had to buy a tourist jacket 😆
