Off on my travels again

Phew – now P&O launch week is over its now time for me to be on my travels again – so as you are reading this I will be in the Canaries (hopefully enjoying the Canarian Sunshine) whilst sailing on the Explorer of the Seas. As most of you know I am a Royal Caribbean fan so when this cruise came up as a good deal at launch we snapped it up, it didn’t come with a drinks package which is fine as my husband doesn’t drink so we both have the soda package and then I will buy any cocktails I want.

We have booked an inside cabin (as you are not in your cabin much) and have booked the Mytime Dining (but we have pre-booked times via our cruise planner) The last time we sailed or even been to the Canaries was back in March 2011 so looking forward to seeing what changes have been made in the ports and just to enjoy some sunshine, Currently we haven’t booked any excursions and think we will see what we want to do on the day but a day at the beach in Gran Canaria sounds quite tempting at the moment.

The Explorer of the Seas has the ice skating rink (and a customer who has just returned from the ship have said its a brilliant show), there is also the flow rider, rock climbing wall etc  I love the parades that go down the Royal Promenade so will be looking forward to those (as each ship does different ones) and also whilst onboard its Halloweeen – normally I sit at home with the lights off to make it look like I am not in but I know Royal Caribbean (being American) celebrate it in a big way on board so will be interested to see what they do.
