Maybe it’s because I’m a bit of a cruise addict, but I love reading live blogs on sites like Royal Caribbean Blog, Cruise Habit, and CruiseRadio, among others. In a live blog (sometimes called a trip report), the cruiser posts a rundown of each day spent on the cruise – what he/she did, ate, drank, etc. Some of these can be rather extensive, and they give you a really good idea about what life is like on the ship and in the ports being visited.
I had a mind to do a live blog for our Pacific Coastal cruise in September, but due to a number of factors, it didn’t happen. In part, I felt bad telling my husband to leave me alone once a day so I could write and post a blog entry! So upon embarking on my first solo cruise, a live blog seemed to be the thing to do.
I’ll be leaving on a 4-night sailing of Royal Caribbean’s Majesty of the Seas today, Monday December 4, and hope to post on the blog every day this week telling you what my days at sea (and in port) consisted of this week. It’s my first time giving this live blogging thing a try, so bear with me!
Our cruise leaves from Port Canaveral and visits CocoCay, Nassau, and has a day at sea before returning back to Florida. I’m excited to return to Majesty of the Seas after our short Bahamas cruise on her last August. I’m looking forward to hanging out (and writing blog posts!) in her lovely public areas — and mostly I’m looking forward to NOT having one of her tiny inside cabins!
