A little taste of luxury!

I can’t believe we are now into May which means the month I get to travel on the Celebrity Eclipse.  We are all excited, especially as it is Kevin and Millie’s first time on a ship.  A lot of my good friends are going too so it will be great to all get together.  Millie says that she wants to get to the children’s club so I don’t think I will see her much.  We travel down to Southampton the day before the cruise and we are going out for a nice meal and some cocktails.  The cruise is then two nights, a quick hop across to Le Havre and back.  We aren’t planning to leave the ship, just want to enjoy the facilities for a weekend.

Last week I found out that have been chosen to travel on the Oceania Insignia one day after I come back from the Eclipse.  I am SO excited as I have wanted to travel with Oceania for years and now finally have the opportunity!  We are doing a three night part of a much longer sailing – I wonder if they would let us stay on for longer?  We join the ship in Rome on the Tuesday, after flying in on the first BA flight to Fiumicino.  Our first day is spent at sea which is perfect as this will be a great chance for us to explore the ship.  We will be able to take lots of lovely pictures and videos to share with you.  Our second day will be taking in the amazing city of Barcelona.  I have been a few times before and it is one of my favourite places.  I hope we will be able to try out one of their excursions this day, it would be good to be able to experience one.  Our third day is unfortunately the day we need to leave the ship.  We disembark in Alicante and then fly home back to normality.

A busy month ahead I think you will agree!
