So Here We Are

I’m officially on VACATION! I have waited 7 months for this since we first booked our cruise. We don’t actually fly out to Miami until Friday!! But I’m headed to my moms on Thursday since we’re catching the plane from there. I’m so excited. First time on MSC Cruiseline. I think regardless of the reviews we will have an extremely great time!! Plus we have that BALCONY SUITE that makes things all the better!! 😉

Now I have to do all my last minute things.. of course I’ve been packed for a week

 Happy to be packed but gotta clean the house. My best friend will house/animal sit for us so I don’t have to worry about anything!! That I am thankful for. Well, talk soon, I have to get ready for MSC DIVINA  -Miami, Fl  -St. Maarten  -San Juan, Puerto Rico -Bahamas!

Pittsburgh

Friday, I decided it was time to color the hair red-again.

Then I was on my way to Pittsburgh for a weekend away to see my family. It was so nice to just be AWAY from my area for awhile. We decided to make Pittsburgh Steelers Wreaths. Although it sounds easy, it took us a total of 5 hours (cutting fabric and putting them together)!! But it was great spending time with my Mom, Grandparents, Aunt, and my Husband.

It was also nice to talk about our upcoming cruise!! Only 15 days til my vacation time starts!! I guess I should probably start packing! My Mom, Aunt and I went shopping and got a lot of really nice clothes for the cruise. 🙂 We are all looking forward to the MSC DIVINA.

The Countdown begins…. and so much to do!! 😀

Five Reasons I Love to Cruise

This hits it spot on! Cruising is my favorite way of vacation, super relaxing and very affordable!

The Travel Voice by Becky

It is no secret that this travel journalist is a fan of cruising. Sometimes it is just me and the hubby, while other times it may be the whole family…either way, it is always the cornerstone for great memories and fantastic value!

Everyone always asks why I love cruising so much, so I compiled a list of the five top reasons why I love to cruise. Sure, there are more, but these characteristics are always common across all fleets.

  1. Value. Cruises offer an all-inclusive vacation adventure with lots of bang for the buck, especially if you cruise during the times of the year when kids are in school. Prices are higher during summer months and holiday seasons when children are on school break, so if you can make it any other time, you are likely to find a BARGAIN! Cruise prices include everything you need to have a great vacation…good food with lots of choices, activities…

ONE Month

Getting SUPER excited for our upcoming vacation. On a day like today when I’m not feeling my best, it really gives you something to look forward to. We’re officially 30 days away from flying to Miami and boarding the beautiful MSC Divina.

We are booked in a huge balcony suite. None of us in our group of 4 have ever even had a balcony so to get the chance to have both a suite and a balcony, it makes this cruise that much more special. Although, we’ve never been on this cruiseline before and knowing it is more of a European cruise we know that we are in for a real surprise. But unlike some cruisers, we are looking forward to the difference in cruiseline.

Something new or different means a new adventure for us and that’s what traveling and cruising is all about. Another thing that makes this cruise special is my Aunt who is going was just diagnosed with Lung Cancer. I’m really looking forward for us 4 as a family to enjoy this vacation to the max TOGETHER and really spend some quality time TOGETHER.

Although this year has been a rough one.. from the time we started planning this cruise back in February we have had many Ups and Downs. But, I know this vacation is what we all need and we will make the absolute best of it no matter the situation.

30 Days………………………………!
