When I am asked about our favorite family vacations, cruising is always at the top. We all loved to cruise. From the moment you step aboard the ship, you feel your mind start to shift to fun and relaxation. 

One cruise we all have wanted to go on is to the Caribbean. We love visiting different islands, and this is the perfect way to see a few of them without having to pack and unpack. Plus, I can't imagine a more beautiful sight than cruising in the Caribbean with those amazing blue waters.

Royal Caribbean’s Seven-Night Western or Eastern Caribbean Cruise really caught my eye! It is the ultimate 2016-17 family vacation onboard one of the largest and most innovative cruise ships there is. You can sail out of Ft. Lauderdale or Port Canaveral, FL to the Western or Eastern Caribbean.  During Plan A Vacation Month, you can enter to win a cruise with your family of four onboard Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas or Allure of the Seas for seven nights. The winner will stay in spacious accommodations with your own private balcony, experience signature adventures onboard including ice skating, rock climbing and surfing on the FlowRider surf simulator, and enjoy delicious dining in 20 restaurants and exciting Broadway-style entertainment.   

Doesn't that sounds amazing?!

We felt both relaxed and full of adventure after our last cruise because there is so much to do, and places to relax, depending on how you want your day to go!

  1. We are actually planning a cruise right now! We’re only planning a 5 day cruise…but maybe I should enter this contest just in case. Because 7 days wouldn’t be so bad, just sayin’. 😉

  2. I’ve never had the extreme pleasure of going on a cruise before but what a spectacular experience it appears to be. I wouldn’t know how to contain my excitement. I think about all the fun experiences and photos I’d have.

  3. This sounds like a great cruise line. I am scheduled to go on a cruise next week to the Bahamas. I would love to go on a 14-day cruise to Asia stopping in Shanghai and Hong Kong.

  4. Plan a Cruise Month? Sounds like my kind of month. I have never been on a cruise but I would love to go on one.

  5. I wish we had the time scheduling wise to go on a cruise! Perhaps if I look far in advance, last summer I waited too late! Thanks for the push!

  6. I have never been on a cruise before but have always wanted to go. These is a fantastic contest for a chance to win one.

  7. I have always wanted to go on a cruise. It would be amazing to win one. The Caribbean would be an amazing destination.

  8. I have never been on a cruise before. I have always wanted to though. This would be such a great cruise! I have always wanted to do a Caribbean cruise too.

  9. This would be a dream come true to win a cruise. I have been looking at different packages and it is so hard to choose.

  10. We love taking cruises, especially on Royal Carribean, because you know that there is going to be great food, drinks, entertainment, and amenities. I can’t wait to take my boys on a cruise one day!

  11. Funny I just did a cruise post on my blog today too but not with RC. I only experienced one cruise line but I heard great things about RC…maybe one day I can do a review with them in the future!

  12. How awesome! What great tips! I’ve never been on a cruise but can’t wait to at some point. Looks like so much fun!

  13. I have never been on a cruise before, but it is definitely on my bucket list. I am totally entering because it looks like you had a blast.

  14. My husband and I have been on several cruises and Royal Caribbean is our favorite cruise line hands down. It has been years since we’ve been on one but now you’ve got us thinking of booking one very soon!
