Behind the Scenes of Our Extra Special Summer Edition. You Won’t Want to Miss This!


Last summer my family and I did not go on vacation.

We did not hop on a bus.

We did not hop on a train.

We did not hop anywhere,

not even an airplane.

We did not see the sea.

We did not crowd in the minivan,

with a gallon bottle of sweet tea.

We did not pay hundreds,

to see a mouse named Mickey.


We did eat chicken nuggets.

We did visit a public park.

Anything free, was oh so smart.

Mommy worked very hard during the summer.

That I know.

She did not buy clothes that she saw on a fashion show.

Instead mommy did something oh so cavalier

She bought bedroom furniture for us little dears.

This summer we are going to make up

For the lost one of yesteryear.

By doing something great

Unlike last year.

Make sure you subscribe and stay tuned to this space.

Coming soon TeacherCes.com’s special summer edition

How to select a cruise line for your next family vacation


All entrepreneurs should utilize the option of rest and relaxation.  Last summer I worked so hard that vacation escaped me.  This year, it is imperative that I take my family on a vacation.

With so many options, I did not know where to get started.  Although I love to travel, by choice I had never been on a cruise.  Being that I would be taking the kiddos, I decided that a cruise would be our best option.  Next steps involved selecting a cruise line.  There are so many options, especially for kids.  Naturally, Disney sounded like the best option since I would be bringing the kids (see here).
Cruise Ship On The Shore In A Tropical Climate

Realizing Disney would not be the option for us right now, I narrowed down my choices between Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Princess, and Norwegian Cruise Lines.  Each option seemed to have steller kids clubs and other amenities that will entice my wee ones.  After much research, I determined Royal Caribbean to be the winner.  They had a lot of kid friendly options on their ships that seemed like a good deal.

Speaking of deal, I got the best deal that I could get for the high season time that we are going.  Being new to this cruise life, I had no idea that cruising was so expensive in the summer.

There is so much it takes to plan a vacation.  Next on the list is accommodations.

Why is a Disney Cruise Better than a Carnival Cruise?

 

Great deals are to be found!


cruise-ship-floating_MkYuq8__Asking for a friend (not really, I’m asking for myself).  

If a Disney Cruise sounds like an awesome idea but you can’t afford it, what would be a great alternative?  I can’t see paying what they are asking for at this time for my family of four.  I’m thinking about either just taking the fam to the actual Disney World or taking a Carnival/Royal Caribbean cruise this summer.  We don’t go on family vacations every year so I want to make it semi-special this year.  Of course if you are a representative from Disney, Carnival, or Royal Caribbean I would be more than happy to blog and Instagram about my experience.
