What do bloggers do when they want to reconnect with their blogging friends and develop a close connection with a fantastic brand? They register for a Brandcation for a #SeasTheDay trip, that’s what they do! I will be joining 39 other incredibly talented and inspiring bloggers in April on a 4 day cruise to Cozumel, Mexico aboard the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas!
Brandcation is a sort-of conference, sort-of retreat created by Brandfluential and MomDot, and this will be my third time joining the gang on an adventure. In the past, I’ve explored the sandy beaches of Pensacola with the Bloggers Gone Coastal Brandcation trip, and explored the total opposite with BlogCabin – the Smoky Mountains in Pigeon Forge!
Both trips were so much fun and so professionally rewarding that I knew I had to go on this cruise – plus, duh, it’s a cruise. Y’all know how much I love cruising!
This is going to be my first time cruising with Royal Caribbean and I am so excited!
A little about the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas:
Operating out of Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the Liberty of the Seas has 1,817 staterooms with 1,084 ocean view rooms – 842 of those are balcony rooms and thank my lucky stars, I will be in a balcony room!
Since this will be my first time on Royal Caribbean, I am super excited about exploring all of their onboard amenities!

Obviously I am trying to lose a few pounds prior to the cruise so that I can indulge like a mad woman and still fit into my clothes when the cruise is over…
It’s not all about the food, though! The Liberty of the Seas also has wonderful options for relaxing, which I am pretty sure at least half of us moms on board are going to want to take advantage of!
