If the ocean’s a-rocking…

If the ocean’s a-rocking…

… Then I’m probably curled up with a busted ankle, giggling about rude stories and popping seasickness pills at an alarming rate.

The holiday is over, friends, and my beloved and I have returned home to the bosom of our fur babies. We had a spectacular time…

We left from Sydney and headed to New Caledonia. I’ve decided I am quite a fan of going away with my beloved, particularly when it includes a cruise ship, amazing music and lots of fun. Nothing could make a dent in our holiday spirits. Nothing.

And it was actually in these really shitful moments surrounding a busted ankle that the staff aboard the Carnival Spirit raised the bar. I’ve had a think about it, and I reckon it comes down to this: value. The staff members, from our gorgeous cabin steward Sam through to Jacqueline at guest services, from Dessi the maître d’ through to Soulfire, with the stunningly talented Sam Crane – these individuals seem to genuinely place value on people, and their experience on board. It matters that the passengers have a great holiday. And if they can help make that happen, then you can bet anything that the Carnival team will do it.

I made many tales to tell about the last ten days. And I reckon that every single person on board has their own set of tales to tell. One thing that I realized while on holidays is that even though it looks like we’re all traveling the same direction, there’s no way we can assume that we’re taking in identical views. So stay tuned, and I’ll share some of my own stories aboard the Carnival Spirit with you.

But right now, I need to come up with a way to convince my beloved that we need to book our next cruise sooner rather than later!

Are you a cruiser? Do you love it? What has been your best ever experience on holidays?
