A family Cruise Holiday!!!!

22 June 2015


Being very short on time and needing a quick getaway with the kids I thought why not go on the 4 night relaxing Cruise - Auckland to Sydney - and have three action packed days in Sydney!

This was a family focused holiday so I asked the kids to research all the places that they would like to travel to in Sydney, and research they did!!

Our holiday started at the Auckland Cruise terminal with the friendliest & happiest check in people I have ever come across! (I felt like they were coming on holiday with us!) As soon as we boarded the Pacific Pearl Cruise Ship we dropped our hand luggage to the cabin and headed up for lunch….

After lunch we were so full that I'm surprised the ship sailed!! We headed to the top deck for the Sail Away party!! There were cocktails, music, dancers, and of course sailing in June, the wind!!

The kids rushed off to join the Kids Club and explore the ship, and before we knew it, it was dinner time! There are two dining experiences, one is the Waterfront Restaurant with three course meals, and the second restaurant is Plantation which is a buffet restaurant all included in the fare, so there was always plenty of choices. Dining whilst watching the sun set over the water is an experience never to be forgotten!

After dinner of course it’s time to visit one of the nine bars on board! a couple of cocktails and then the Comedy show in the Marquee Theatre!

Great Food, Great Cocktails, Plenty of laughter at the Comedy Show & Kids Sorted!

What a way to start the holiday!!!

Next week….Sydney….the kids way!
