Oh my! I'm such a procrastinator and get busy and stop things. I decided to add a last few notes on Duinrell before skipping to a review for our Thanksgiving cruise we did to Greece! Zaanse Schans Our last day trip we did from Duinrell was to Zaanse Schans. It wasn't too far from the … Continue reading Duinrell- Part 2
Back in June my Mom came to visit from the USA and we took the kids to Duinrell Amusement Park in Wassenaar, Netherlands. I had read great reviews and joined a group on Facebook that had tons of information. The trip has now hooked me onto holiday parks. We travel a lot and part of … Continue reading Duinrell Holiday Park, Netherlands June 2019- Part 1
May 13 Sea Day Last Sea Day. I started prepacking and enjoying my last day of relaxation before the last port day and getting home. Nothing too crazy went on. It was getting colder so we used the indoor pool, relaxed, I went to the show. Unlike my last cruise I didn't really meet any … Continue reading May 13-15 Sea Day, Le Havre and back to Southampton
So surprisingly for me, my kids and I all enjoyed the Northern European ports more than the warmer Spain and Portugal ports. I thought for sure they'd enjoy lounging and the beach days but they loved getting out and about in the last three ports: Rotterdam, Hamburg and Le Havre. May 9, 2019 Sea Day … Continue reading May 9-12 Sea Day, Rotterdam, Sea Day, Hamburg
No excuse, just been slacking off. Hoping to finish off this cruise review so I can do a couple different trips we've done in. May 5, 2019 Cádiz My main plan for Cádiz was to take a slow day and just relax. I walked the sea edge to La Caleta beach and enjoyed the scenery. … Continue reading May 5-9 Cádiz, Malaga and Vigo instead of La Coruna

Then my best friend came and we went to Paris and to Scotland. And then my husband … Continue reading May 3 and 4, 2019… I got busy!
Our second port day was Brest, France. I'm not sure what the big day trips are from here but I remember that I didn't see anything that would be for the kids. Early on I'd heard that Oceanopolis was nice for kids. Another aquarium but my kids love aquariums so that was fine. I would … Continue reading Brest, France: May 2, 2019
This was the rainiest day of the cruise but it wasn't too bad honestly. I admit, I was born and raised in Florida so if it's not a down pour I think it's easily manageable. We decided to sleep in because we didn't have an excursion or anything booked for the day. It was also … Continue reading May 1, 2019 St. Peter Port, Guernsey
Southampton Monday April 29, 2019 So I paid about $100 USD extra to cruise out of Southampton and not out of Hamburg. It was 100% worth it. I decided to drive in a day early because I always worry about what if there's road delays, the train had us switching THREE times which seemed like … Continue reading Southampton is so convenient!
So here's the cruise we just did as a reminder. MSC Preziosa, 15 nights out of Southampton April 30, 2019. So I got off the cruise last week and have slowly been getting back into regular life things. I had planned on blogging along the way on some of my down town (because let's face … Continue reading Is 15 nights too many?
