Hello from the high seas and our cruise onboard the Celebrity Silhouette Bravo Cruise.
I can’t believe we have been onboard nearly a week and our adventure on the Bravo Cruise ends tomorrow. Its been the most wonderful week, as a family we needed to get away from all the school dramas (still ongoing) but we will be coming home fighting fight and ready to tackle this head on and do whatever it takes to get Joe in a new school.
Sometimes stepping away makes you realize exactly how horrific a situation is how it is affecting your health. It wasn’t ideal boarding ship with a lip full of cold sores but I think we got away at the right time as I have had enough.
And this cruise has done Joe the world of good, we have been able to wrap him in a family shaped bubble and ensure he has had the best time. We have explored, swam, chilled out in the sun and enjoyed each other’s company. It been odd Jack not being here, and the first real holiday without him, I guess that’s a sign of the times and something we need to get used to, weeps.
There may not have been many kids onboard which we thought would be a nightmare. But its been fine and we have enjoyed lots of family time.
During Alfie Boe’s show Joe was invited onto stage with Alfie Boe (Jealous not!!!) Because of that he seems to know so many people around the ship who stop him to say hi. He loves all the fuss and I can see how relaxed he is which is wonderful.
The ship is spectacular, with the most beautiful lounges and pool areas with big squishy sun loungers, perfect for sipping cocktails and soaking up the Mediterranean sun and watching the sunsets from deck.
And the food, omg there are so many options and although the main fining room is wonderful. Celebrity also have the most amazing themed restaurants serving interactive swoon worthy dishes.
As the cruise is a chartered cruise that focuses on performing arts the entertainment is world-class.
With acts such as Alfie Boe, Wynn Evans, Julian Lloyd Webber, Katherine Jenkins and Ruthie Henshaw. Everywhere you look there is beautiful music you just don’t know what to do first. Being a huge theatre fan it really is amazing.
Of course a big part of cruising is getting off and discovering new ports. Which is why cruising is a wonderful way to travel. You get to see the world in luxury but be able to explore several different countries in the space of a week.
We sail back into Southampton tomorrow and hopefully glorious weather so we can enjoy a long weekend in the sun. I have been posting daily postcards over on Cruising With Kids if you fancy a peek.
Have a wonderful weekend whatever you are up to.
