Cruises are a mums best friend!

Enough talk about snow. Let's chat about something nice & another cruise!

I cannot believe that I love cruises.

I am an original back packer, lived in a camper van for a year whilst touring Europe & all of our vacations have been D.I.Y. in an apartment or villa as we like to be in dependant.

A very good friend of mine has been talking me into cruising for over 5 years. This lady... Mrs O is the kind of friend who has opinions that you value, for goodness sakes she enjoys sarcasm which gets her a Blue Peter Badge for starters!

We went on a cruise last year & loved it. Ladies as a mother you cannot get a more relaxing holiday....believe me!

Everything is done for you and you find "yourself again." Not the mother's, or wife image where you are thinking of everyone else's needs but your own. The kids make friends, they enjoy the kids clubs & beg to go in them. Sir L & I could go to the gym, swim, run, take a walk or even read!

The food is excellent and international with superb Indian food. Lots of entertainment, singers, dancers, shows etc.

My only complaint would be that it was not long enough.. a mere 7 days for goodness sakes!

I am of European heritage & need a least 2 weeks to unwind!

But aren't you constantly afraid that a little person might fall over the edge somehow? I would be a nervous wreck I think.

I was last year as he is a climber however the sides of the ship are really high. And do you know the Captains #1 rule is: NO climbing or you have to leave the ship!

That did it!

Don't you mean a 'fortnight' to unwind?!

Glad you had such a good time, we've been contemplating a quick cruise down to Mexico for a while now, I'm just terrified of the 40lb weight gain I would have in the space of 7 days!

Go for it as there is a gym, a jogging lane & walking level so you can push the strolller onboard. My friend just came off the Mexico trip o Saturday & had a brill time.
