The main thing that puts people off booking a cruise is the fear of being sea sick. It’s a tough decision to make, as you don’t know how you will react until you actually get on the boat. As someone who can feel queasy in the back of a car, I have taken a few steps and I am fine with sea sickness, even on rough seas.
Here are my tips to make sure you don’t get sea sick, and advice for which type of cruise you should pick if you’re worried.
I’ve got some exciting news to share about my next holiday – and it’s a big one! In 2017, I’ve already been to Disneyland Paris twice, making the most of my annual pass, and now it’s time to venture slightly further afield. Still keeping with the Disney theme, I’m going on a Disney Cruise around the Mediterranean, departing from Barcelona, Spain, and with cruise stops in Italy and France. I could not be more excited, and this is why.
Back in 2008, I went on my first Disney Cruise with my family. It was a three-night trip around the Bahamas to try it out and see if we liked it. Looking back, it was just as much about finding out about cruising as it was making sure none of us were seasick! Needless to say, we loved it, and we booked a longer seven-night cruise around the Caribbean for two years later in 2010.
We properly got into the swing of cruising with Disney on this trip, but I haven’t been back on a ship since. That’s seven whole years without Disney Cruise Line. But that is about to change.
Of course I will be bringing you daily vlogs from the trip, from our arrival and exploring Barcelona to the best bits of the Disney Magic, the ship we will be travelling on.
So why do I love Disney Cruise Line so much?
I love Disney World vlogs so much that I decided to make my own back in October. I have watched countless hours of video footage on YouTube from Magic Kingdom and the other parks, but then I started to want something new. I went on a few Disney cruises back in 2008 and 2010, so tried to find some vlogs from aboard Disney’s four cruise ships; the Wonder, the Magic, the Dream and the Fantasy. To my surprise, they’re a lot more few and far between than I anticipated. So, for your convenience, here are my favourite Disney Cruise Line vlogs from top vloggers.
Some have millions of followers and others have a few thousand, but they all create great Disney Cruise vlogs. Hopefully you’ll find some new favourite YouTube channels from this list! Which is your favourite?
Today, I am joined by a fellow journalism graduate and – more importantly – one of my roommates from when I worked in Disney! The wonderful Rebecca Barrett has kindly written a great article on why cruising isn’t just for the retirees. In fact, it’s perfect for us 20-somethings as well. I’m definitely convinced, and I’m sure you’ll soon be as well, so I’ll see you on the pool deck.
