Quantum of the Seas : Royal Caribbean

Some things that I am invited to as a lifestyle and travel blogger are so special, I seriously have to pinch myself. This weekend was just such an occasion.  I had been invited to board to Quantum of the Seas for its pre-inaugural voyage. We would be the first guests to ever test out this new ship that was heralded as the one that changes everything!

Tall Dad (my hubby) and I spent the first two nights experiencing as much as we could of the worlds first smart ship.

Ana Snapshot : Starwater

I’m back from a fantastic and awe-inspiring trip on the worlds most technological ship Quantum of the Seas with Royal Caribbean.  Cruise sceptic Tall Dad has now decided that cruising is definitely going to be our next holiday (I hate to say I told you so Tall Dad but…)  so all in all a huge success.  Before I get chance to write up my full report on the two nights we spent aboard the Quantum, I wanted to share with you a snapshot, a virtual postcard if you will of the amazing production Starwater, which we saw on our final night.  With technology such as video mapping and ground breaking robotic technology, I was blown away by the dramatic and theatrical performances, and the music chosen was perfection!

A Weekend in Amsterdam : My Top Picks and Tips (photo heavy post)

Earlier in the week I posted about my weekend in Amsterdam, we stayed at an amazing hotel (InterContinental Amstel Amsterdam) thanks to me using up some of my IHG Reward Club points, which even covered the flights too for both of us. You can read all about my experience using my 1 Million IHG Reward club points HERE.

Well in this post, I wanted to share a little bit more about what we got up to.  It took Tall Dad and I a while to get acclimatised, and if I’m honest, some parts of Amsterdam, weren’t really for me.  The red light district being the main thing.  To be so overtly there, at the turn of a corner I really didn’t like.  We even saw a nursery in amongst that area, I did struggle with that concept. We did however see so many other things that we absolutely loved, so here are the top picks! Continue Reading
