DISCLAIMER: I attended an exclusive tour of the Carnival Breeze through the Bloggin' Mamas Network. It was sponsored by Earth Friendly Products, makers of Baby ECOS. No compensation was received for this review. As always, all opinions are my own.
The sun was shining. I was shining in my strapless Lilly Pulitzer shift, turquoise beaded necklace, seashell studded clutch, and wedges that turn heads every time I wear them.
It was the perfect attire to wear on my pre-Mother's Day brunch aboard a cruise ship. Not just any ship... the Carnival Breeze. Built in 2012, it is the newest ship in their fleet until the Carnival Vista launches in 2016.
If you've never cruised before, there is a check-in process similar to boarding an airplane. You drop off your baggage, present your passport and boarding pass, and go through security. After that, you proceed to a lobby area where you wait until you're allowed to board.
During that time, the other mamas on the tour and I received a nice gift from one of the sponsors, Amrita Singh Jewelry and Accessories. How cute is this anchor necklace? I think it paired nicely with my turquoise one.
I'd like to also take this time to recognize our cruise ship tour sponsor - Earth Friendly Products, makers of Baby ECOS. They have lots of natural products including Baby ECOS Laundry Detergent, Baby ECOS Stain & Odor Remover, Baby ECOS Bottle & Dish Wash, Baby ECOS Toy & Table Cleaner, Baby ECOS Here & There Cleaner, ECOS 4X Concentrated Laundry Detergent, ECOS Ultra Laundry Detergent, Dishmate Dish Detergent in Pear, Fruit & Vegetable Wash, Parsley Plus, and Window Cleaner in Lavender.
Now, to the tour. I created a great video that takes you to my favorite places on board. It highlights the staterooms, dining, spa and amenities for kids and adults. Here are a few pictures to give you a taste of what to expect in the video below.
I have to admit that being on this ship really made me want to set sail. NewsyDad and I have been on two cruises before. We really enjoy it. It's nice to just relax and know that your room and food are included. We have yet to take Monkey & Lil Tank... but after seeing what's offered for their ages on the Carnival Breeze, we're ready to give it a go.
Have you cruised before? What do you like best about cruising? Would you like to set sail on the Carnival Breeze?
