My husband and I went on our 13th cruise together. We love to cruise. This last cruise we did with a 4 year old and a 9 month old! Crazy right. Normally I would show you the cute pictures that I carefully selected though out the week. But cruising has its other side too. Lots of waiting. Boring things. Not fun vacation things. Don’t get me wrong, I love to cruise and we will go again, but I thought I would share a different side. Please don’t see this post as complaining. Just things that usually happen to me while I am on a cruise. Enjoy!
Look a great view of a helecopter but someone is in front of me so I can’t take a good picture.
Sun tan lotion and bug spray.
Kid pool is closed because someone POOPED in it.
151 sqaure foot room with 2 kids. One in a pack and play. You had to move the back in play to get to the bathroom or the closet.
Dirty windows. So much salt it is hard to keep them clean.
Trying to get a picture of the statue of liberty. But there are so many people it just did not happen.
Oh look, you are not the only people to bring your kids on a cruise. 30 other kids are in your childs age group on the ship.
Not pictured: Lifeboat drill, waiting in customs, waiting in life for an elevator because you have a stroller, trying to get food at the buffet for yourself, a toddler, and a baby while people are not following buffet rules, and waiting for food at a sit down restaurant while a toddler is crying.
Finally, listen to other people complain on their vacation about things.
Again, we LOVE cruising, and we will do it again. But it is not all white sand beaches, clear water, and sunsets. But i will share one anway.
