6 reasons Disney Cruising is an ideal family holiday 

Q, my mom and I recently took a 7 night Eastern Caribbean cruise with Disney Cruiselines. I had never cruised before, but my mom had been on a number of cruises over the years, but never with Disney.  As I shared last week, I had a number of misgivings about family cruising, but every single one of them was completely unfounded, and it turned out to be an absolutely perfect vacation for … [Read more...]

Should you cruise with kids? Absolutely!!!

When you hear about avid cruisers, who do you picture? I know personally, I used to think of cruising as more of either a college students party kind of vacation, or something that retired people do. I didn't know of too many people my age with kids who had really embraced the cruising lifestyle, or so I thought.  Q, however, had become completely enamoured with the idea of cruising after … [Read more...]

Inside the mind of my 8 yr old

I've been seeing one of those cute "ask your kids" questionnaires floating around on Facebook over the past few weeks. Basically, the premise is that you ask your child a series of questions, and then record their answers exactly as they say, without any prompting.

My amazing, spectacular Christmas vacation – Q’s views

My Christmas holidays were awesome. First, me and my Dad went sledding at the Rotary Stadium hill. I crashed twice but it was fun. My sled got wrecked because it got a hole in it. Dad went sledding too, on my sled. It was cold and there was lots of snow. The hill was steep and I was tired from climbing up. I was glad I went.  The next day me, Mom and Lola went to Fantastic beasts and Where … [Read more...]
