In just a few days, I will be crossing off a few things from my bucket list. Traveling internationally…check. Taking a cruise…check. Swimming with dolphins…check. It is quite an exciting time!
Almost a year ago, I boarded my first cruise ship, the Carnival Elation, and took a tour of the new Fun Ship 2.0 Improvements. Even though the cruise didn’t leave the port, I was hooked. A few months later, I was invited back to tour the Carnival Conquest and I participated in a social media scavenger hunt.
I will be enjoying my prize in the upcoming days by setting sail with my family on the Carnival Conquest (don’t get any ideas, I have house sitters and an attack guinea pig). I am starting to pack my bags but I need to hear your tips for first time cruisers. Should I take Dramamine or Bonine? Do I bring casual or fancy clothes? What are the “do not forget” items? Anything special to consider when traveling with kids? Help!
