Meet the Norwegian Encore (Alaska Cruise 2021)

Meet the Norwegian Encore (Alaska Cruise 2021)

Posted October 15, 2021 in Around the World // 0 Comments

As I mentioned in my September Wrap Up, we went to Alaska at the end of the month! It was an incredible experience and makes the list of my top vacation spots because of its atmosphere, wonder, and beauty. We’ll get to that more in later posts, but as always with cruises, we start with the introduction of the ship! To get to Alaska, we travelled round trip from Seattle, WA on the Norwegian Encore. NCL’s policies continue to be stringent and we were required to show proof of vaccination, get tested before traveling and upon arriving at the port, […]

I can not adequately express how AMAZING it was to step aboard a cruise ship after 593 days.  For longtime followers of the blog, you’ll know we love cruising.  I’ve posted about a Transatlantic in 2018, and a Caribbean and Bahamas cruise in 2019… and then… well, you know the rest.  In 2020 we were supposed to go on a Baltic cruise for our 5th anniversary, and while I have promised myself we’ll get to St. Petersburg and Berlin someday… the cancellation of that cruise (eventually) enabled us to visit some of the Greek Islands this July… and go to Alaska […]

There are a lot of different cruise ships out there on a lot of different cruise lines. Matt and I are by no means professional cruisers (but, full disclosure, full time cruising is my retirement plan) but we love being on board and have been testing out different ships as more and more cruise lines begin to said out of New York, Boston, and today… Bayonne, New Jersey! Our latest venture to the Bahamas was the first time I had personally cruised with Royal Caribbean.  I’ve done tours and reviews on a few other ships with other lines – the […]

Good morning my loves! Today marks the first in a series of four about my adventures on the Carnival Horizon and my trip into the Caribbean! This was actually my first time in the Caribbean – my husband and I went to Bermuda for our honeymoon, but Bermuda is actually in the Atlantic ocean, so this is officially the furthest south I’ve ever been! As some of you may know, I tend to pre-schedule my posts, so let me tell you about where I am as I’m writing this. It’s 6:25am and we’re in the middle of the Caribbean en […]

Transatlantic Cruise: Meet the Breakaway (1/8)

Cruising isn’t for everyone, but I love it. Why? First of all, I hate planes. I have a managed phobia of heights and I nearly always get sick on planes. Besides, I swear, I am uniquely talented and no matter what seat I pick, it is ALWAYS the one right in front of the only baby on the flight. +10pts me. Another reason to love cruises is that they are convenient. You get room, transportation, and food all in one, plus most entertainment. You don’t have to spend anything above cruise fare to have a good time. I’ll talk a […]
