Welcome To Our Stateroom

Cruising is an amazing way to spend a vacation. I love the idea of going to sleep in one location and waking up in a different place or even a different country! It is an amazing way to travel.

I like having my meals prepared for me, pretty much eating like a queen for the entire time I am on the boat and enjoying all the entertainment and fun that the ship has to offer! It’s a great way to relax.

Now, since this cruise was only 5 days, it was a little different from the last state room that I stayed in with my family when I cruised the Panama Canal for 2 weeks last January.

When I first walked into our room, I was pleasantly surprised that Fiancé had surprised me with an upgrade to a room with a view! I was so excited!

It was lovely to be able to peek out our window and see the waves rolling on by. It was also nice to watch us come and go in the ports.

To the right of the bed is a little desk area. I kind of set up shop in this area.

When you first walk in the room, you come through this pretty blue door and come down a little mini hallway.

To the right is the bathroom, which was bigger than most cruise bathrooms I have seen before. Shower on the left and bathroom on the right.

In actuality it was a bit bigger than these pictures make it out to be.

Across from the bathroom was our closet.

We hung up most of our clothes and put everything else on the shelves.

Next to the closet was a mini fridge.

Obviously it held only the essentials.

Under it was a mini bar area. Along with the surprise of a room with a view, Fiancé also surprised me with a bottle of wine and chocolate covered strawberries for our arrival!

Seriously, how sweet is that?

Next to the bar was our sad excuse for a television and table area.

Above the bed was a separate bed that came out of the wall, which is pretty cool. These are in all the rooms and can allow a room to go from sleeping one – two people to four people.

I know this from experience. My family has all stayed in a room this size before. It wasn’t  pretty, but it can be done!

The bed comes right out of the wall!

Every night our room steward made little animals out of towels which was fun. I enjoyed this little elephant.

And if you were wondering what I was reading while on the cruise, here is what kept me entertained – the new Runner’s World, Philadelphia Wedding and Into Thin Air. All awesome reads!

We enjoyed our little stateroom. It was the perfect size for us for 5 days.

And of course when we wanted to get out of our room, we were just a few steps away from some amazing views.

    what fabulous pictures! seriouslyyyy. the bathroom is so teeny tiny-makes me giggle. however, the room itself is much bigger than i would have imagined on a cruise. so that's a plus.

    is that your purse on the desk? if so, i LOVE it. the size is fantastic!!

    also, you look stunning, girl!
