Cruise ships can be huge places. They’re even bigger than a floating hotel, and often have handfuls of restaurants, theatres, and activities on them, plus enough rooms to house thousands of guests and thousands of staff. Disney Cruise line is no different, and I had a great time on the Disney Magic Mediterranean cruise back in September. It was my second time on this ship, but I hadn’t stepped foot on this incredible floating home since 2010. Quite a bit had changed.

With so much to see and only a set number of days to do it all, here are my favourite places on board the Disney Magic. I hope my list inspires you to book a cruise, or gives you ideas for your must-do things when you are on-board.

Some people are naturally more independent than others. While some people will happily travel the world on their own, others will rarely venture to the restroom without any company. I’m here to tell you why you should never worry about doing what you want to on your own. Most importantly, you should never let the opinions and availability of others dictate what you do.

Basically, if you want to go and see something at the cinema, make sure you get yourself a ticket, no matter who is with you.

I’ve had some great theatre experiences in my life, from seeing Newsies on Broadway to sitting on the front row for Miss Saigon and Wicked. But this one night in a tiny off-West End theatre in Kings Cross was probably better than all of them. Thanks to my theatre-nerd friend Carrie, I ended up with a ticket to see the last ever London performance of In The Heights. Yes, we had bad seats right at the side, but the atmosphere was everything. To top it all off, composer of both In The Heights and Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda (aka my idol) showed up and I could not handle it.

What a night!

Read on for all the highlights.

After the agonising task of whittling down all my favourite musicals to my top 10, I realised that there are some that I really haven’t enjoyed. It must be just as important to share that information with you, as there’s nothing worse than being vaguely disappointed by something that you have gone a long way and paid a lot of money to see.

Obviously theatre is very subjective, and I’m sure you’ll love some of those on this list so I’m going to explain exactly why I didn’t enjoy this one.

Don’t think it will bother you? Then give it a try!

Since moving to London just over a year ago, I’ve seen 16 musicals. It’s fair to say that I’m a little bit obsessed!

Now that people are starting to realise just how often I head to the theatre, I’ve had a fair few people asking me to recommend a show for them. It’s always tough, especially because different shows will suit very different people. I’ve decided to try to answer this questions through a handy blog post of my top 10 favourite shows ever. Not all of them are still showing in London but a lot of them are.

I’ve also ranked them in order. The top four are practically all my favourites, but I’ve managed to put them into a hierarchy. What do you think will claim the top spot?
