Counting down

As I mentioned before, we will be going on a Cruise to New Caledonia soon and I am counting down the days until the day arrives. This year has been really long and I am glad holiday time is almost here so I can relax and enjoy the remaining days of this year. We will be spending Christmas on board so it will be a different experience.

I have to say I am a bit anxious about this particular holiday because I will be spending most of the time in the ship. This is our first cruise and being first time cruisers we were a little bit apprehensive and are doing a lot of research. I have sailed before but never been on a cruise so I am having mixed feeling. I am busy doing my research to make sure I don’t make any mistakes and reading everyone’s’ experience I can see that most of them really enjoyed it so I am hoping to come back and report that I had a fun holiday.

The most worrying part for me is seasickness. I normally don’t get sea sick and I am going to take heaps of medications as well to help me be normal but sometimes you can plan all you want and still things may not work out so a bit worried about it.

Most of the holidays we go to, I have full day plan for nearly all days so I know what I am doing and in control of everything but this holiday we are going to have few sea days and I have no idea how we should spend those. I have been doing my research and there seems to be heaps of things to do in Carnival like going on water ride, golfing, swimming or just relaxing but still not having a proper plan is making me worried a bit.

Apart from that, I think most of the things should go smoothly. I will spend 2 weeks with my loving husband by my side just relaxing, swimming, snorkeling, eating and enjoying ourselves. Can’t thank him enough for make my birthday so special and making me so happy with the cruise as a birthday gift.

If anyone has been on Carnival Spirit before, your suggestions will be highly valuable.

I am very excited about our destination. I have heard a lot about New Caledonia for years now and always wanted to go there and now we will be stopping there in less than a months’ time. I always love tropical holidays with lots of sun, sand and sea and this one is going to be one like that too. As all of you know, I am a summer person and tropical holiday is my cup of tea 🙂

One of the stop for us is Isle of Pines and I have seen so many amazing photos from this place. Isle of Pines was dramatically formed by a series of volcanic upheavals and is truly beautiful.

Another stop is Lifou which is within the Loyalty Islands of New Caledonia and known for their coral reefs and limestone caves.

Hope this holiday will be exciting and fun so we can book more cruise holidays in the future too.

See you with my next post soon.

  3. What a great birthday gift! Hope you guys enjoy your travels!

  4. Hi, thanks for liking my picture!
    I have never been on a cruise ship, but I have crossed the Atlantic on a 35 feet sailing boat – 21 days without seeing anything else than a vast expanse of water … I loved it, would do it again right now and never experienced a single second of boredom!
    I’m sure you’ll enjoy the cruise, and that you’ll experience some wonderful unplanned moments! 🙂

  5. its quite different but yet challenging 🙂 hope you both have all the fun and merry christmas in advance 🙂

  6. I am sure you’ll have a great time…I have never been to cruise myself but I sent my parents on one when they were here and they had awesome time. Sometimes unplanned vacations work out best…Enjoy!!

  7. i have never done cruises I am freaked out by spending such a long time surrounded by water (yes, I am weird). I hope you guys have a wonderful time and come back with lovely pictures and amazing memories 🙂

  8. Have fun… looks to be a wonderful time!

  9. Looks like a paradise !! Have fun. You will never get bored in a cruise. We had similar tension when we booked our first cruise. It’s an experience you will enjoy for sure. After sometime you roundly even feel the ship is moving unless you got to the deck or looking through your window. There is log of activities in the ship which will keep you busy. And when you dock you have lot of activities to do like snorkeling scuba diving and other activities . In short you will not realize how fast the days go by. Have fun and share your travel tales and pics.

    • I am hoping to have heaps of fun and thanks for sharing your experience. We got the room with a french window and boat seemed to have lots of entertainment in the evening. Worst case ,we could always swim whole. let’s hope everything works out as planed. Take care.
