Sea Day May 3, 2019
So I got way behind on doing this cruise review. A short recap… My Mom came and visited and we spent a week in the Netherlands and also went to Chessington amusement park. Then my best friend came and we went to Paris and to Scotland. And then my husband came home after being away for 6 months! I’m really going to try to work on updating while I’m traveling though, but I admit, traveling with a 9 and 10 year old often leaves me exhausted in the evenings.
So the first sea day was really nice. We spent a lot of the day playing at the pool and the water splash area and slide. The weather was warming up and we just took the day easy. We got some gelato which was something we spent money on a couple times a day sometimes. We also got the kids some legos. My daughter (10) also enjoyed a lot of the kids club offerings.
Here’s the daily activities.
Lisbon, Portugal May 4, 2019
I pre-booked a great tour for Lisbon before we got onboard with We Hate Tourism. We booked the Pirates of the Cruise Ships tour. The kids were half price which was definitely an added bonus. Our tour guide was waiting for us and there were no other people with us which was also nice. I would definitely recommend the tour and my favorite stop was definitely Cascais and I wish we could have stayed longer. We were taken to an authentic place for lunch which we all enjoyed also making it a really good deal.
Here’s the daily. Most evenings on port days were spent just relaxing, going to the shows, kids went to the kids clubs (my daughter is SO obsessed) and just enjoying our time together.
