As you know, I’ve really wanted to be able to travel and see so many different countries and culture, but flying isn’t an option for me at the moment due to my anxiety and health. I’ve been to many places within the UK and I’ve even briefly visited France (the inside of the train station anyway), plus I’ve been to Florence for a few days, but I’m not widely travelled.
I unfortunately found out while on holiday in St. Ives last year that I’m extremely sea sick on smaller boats, which is absolutely awful, but I’ve come to the realisation that I might be able to take a cruise ship! Apparently, as the boat is much, much bigger, ocean cruises are not choppy or rocky if you avoid the harsher weather and areas where oceans meet with each other. Meaning I technically shouldn’t feel sea sick. If that’s the case, count me in!
If I was able to take a cruise, I think that would be a dream holiday all in one! I would absolutely love to explore the Caribbean islands with those crystal blue waters, and maybe even seeing dolphins! How amazing would that be? Have any of you taken a cruise and seen dolphins? I love the fact that you can stop at some ports as well and get off and explore for the day, that would be perfect. I’m not sure if you can do that in the Caribbean, but fingers crossed! If not, just seeing my blue and white surroundings while on board a cruise ship sounds perfect to me.
I was contacted by Titan travel to do some recommendations for some ocean cruising, so I couldn’t be happier to share my ideas with you. I would love to also visit the Greek islands and Italy on a cruise. As you know, I have always wanted to go to Greece. Since it’s not too far from the UK, just like Italy isn’t, I think those two places are actually doable! I’ve been to Italy before, but only the city of Florence as I mentioned, I’ve not been to anywhere coastal, which would be amazing. The fact that I would have a hotel on board the ship, entertainment, restaurants and even shopping is perfect too though, you would never get bored even in the middle of the sea, plus it wouldn’t feel like I was on a boat at all, just like I was in a shopping mall, I hope!
I wont leave out the glaciers either though. I know there are some cruises that you can take where you get to see the glaciers and that would be an absolutely incredible experience, wouldn’t it? Seeing all of those huge, blue and white glaciers from the deck of the boat, looking out onto them. Just wow. I know if you are lucky, sometimes you can see whales while your around that region too.
If I got to experience going on a cruise and it was fine for me, I would be unstoppable. I think Adam and I would save up all our money every couple of years and book a new cruise each time just so we can visit all these different countries and explore them all at once. It sounds like the perfect scenario for the both of us. I really hope this can happen one day and I can sail off on a fancy cruise ship, having the time of my life. Now that I know it might actually be a possibility, I am excited to share it with you. Please do tell me any experiences you have had on cruises or with sea sickness! It would be really helpful.
