Honeymoon: Mediterranean Cruise

Voyager Of The Seas
The next stop on our honeymoon was right out of the ports of Barcelona. We jumped on a cruise that took us around the Mediterranean for 7 nights... it was beautiful! (I'll tell you where we went in the next few posts!)
TL's mom used her credit card points and got us a Junior Suite on the top deck. I have never stayed high up with a balcony before, so we ended up staying in our room a lot looking over the balcony.

Our room had a walk-in closet!! So of course, I had to take a picture ;)
Cocktails and a beautiful view... we were so happy!
Our room!
There were CRAZY thunder and lightening storms over night for a few of the nights. I have never seen lightening so bright and the thunder was rattling the entire sky. It kept us awake, but we loved it - it was stunning! Good news, it never rained on us during the day!
This was the largest cruise ship both of us have ever been on. It had an ice skating rink, and and mini golf course - we played a little mini golf, I lost.
This was the craziest point of the entire cruise. A helicopter had to land on our ship to pick up a person who was ill! Our captain actually had to turn the entire ship around and go back closer to the port. They sent a rescue boat out from France, and when that wasn't enough, they sent the helicopter. You can see it if you look just below the big white ball - its red. It was really cool to watch, even though it took 2 hours and I hope the guy was okay.

The cruise was really nice for the food - we ate a ton at every meal! It was also nice to stay in one place for 7 nights with all of the moving around we did. It was so much fun!

OMG! One of my bridesmaids is here (watching Grey's, obvi) and I just realized you and her were on the same cruise! She went to Spain right after the wedding and then the next week left for the cruise out of Barcelona! She said a helicopter landed on her boat! Small world!

I think crusing must be THE way to do Europe. I went to Europe two summers in a row, and packing and unpacking was crazy!

I've only been on one cruise, and it was fab! So glad you had a wonderful time, can't wait to see where you went and all you saw!

Kristin said...

Lightning storms over water is one of my favorite things. We see them a lot in my neck o' the woods. What an amazing cruise that must have been!

Simone said...

Okay.....beautiful ship but I want to know where you stopped!!! Girls need to know details please young lady LOL??!!! Just which cities is fine :)

I did a cruise once around the Caribbean....it was FAB!! :) xo

Heather said...

So fun - I love cruises with the right cruise line. There is nothing like being out on the boat surrounded in every direction by the sea. We did a 14 night Mediterranean cruise last fall and it by far was the best trip we've taken. Looking at your pictures makes me want to go back immediately.

Some people that were on our boat just kept staying for the next two weeks, and the following - had been out there for 6+weeks. Can you imagine?

Glad you had so much fun. :)

I cannot believe how awesome your room AND that ship were! Fabulous!! I've never been on a cruise.. mostly b/c I just cant decide if it's something I'd like. Um.. if I'd been on yours, I think I'd only take cruises the rest of my life.. haha! So much fun! PS.. I'm finishing a blog post and about to leave you a little something on my blog! No need to even ackowledge-you've got plenty of honeymoon posting I'm loving, girly! Just wanted to let you know I missed ya and your blog rocks my world! XOXO!

Simone said...

By any chance did you stop at Villefranche - that's where we go every summer and lots of cruise ships stop there....it's really pretty!

OceanDreams said...

Oh I love cruises. I have only been on one but this one looks fabulous! Don't you wish you could have filled the closet all up? What a fun closet! Hope the guy who was hurt was okay too. So glad you enjoyed your time there, so many adventures!

So glad that your co-worker told you the story. Now I want to move there ASAP so I can see the both of you! It's nice knowing that if I did move up there that there would be someone I know, well, you know what I mean. I feel like I know you already girl! Enjoy your Friday.
