My holiday of a lifetime……

My holiday of a lifetime……

So you may know from my previous blogs from last year that i was planning to revisit my favourite ship so far Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas. Just to recap last year me and my family went on The freedom of the Seas sailing from Barcelona around the med and i fell in love with the ship & staff on-board and generally the whole experience from the food to the service & entertainment was exactly what we wanted out of our family holiday and more. When the holiday had come to end we swiftly made the decision that we wanted to try and book on the same ship for our 2018 holiday.

On arrival home and back to work & school for us i started to look at the possible itinerary’s for 2018 school holidays to see what i could find and started to put together an idea that has now turned into our dream holiday! During the 6 week summer holiday period Freedom is doing 7 night Caribbean sailings from the port of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Given my daughters age (nearly 7 now) we have never wanted to do anything that involves long haul flights, therefore we have always stuck to the Med for our holidays and the furthest we have ventured as a family is Egypt. After a few lengthy family discussions we decided to book the cruise only knowing the flights were not available yet and decided on the below itinerary.

Hello cruise enthusiasts!! My name is Becky, hello and welcome to my blog ‘Sail with Saddoo’. I have worked within travel for over 11 Years and I now have solely focused on cruise holidays for 9 of those years! Im completely crazy about cruising. I Cruise regularly on my own family holidays and am a fountain of knowledge when it comes to the particulars such as kids clubs and family facilities. I also occasionally get to cruise without the family and enjoy this just as much. Cruising is a minefield and there is so much to a cruise holiday, nevermind the variety of ships and their destinations but also things like entertainment and dining make it difficult to choose what is best for you and your requirements. This is where I can help the most as the key is suiting the ship and destination to the right holidaymaker to ensure the best possible cruise experience!
