It Is Time To Leave Winter Behind and Cruise With Carnival Cruise Lines

OK~ February is the time of year when I'm ready to get out of the North Country and head South. Unfortunately, I won't be able to head South until March. I'm gearing up for a vacation on Carnival Cruise Lines, you ever been? I'm totally new to cruising and excited to experience the fun that Carnival Cruise Lines has to offer. We've had a week of no sunshine here in North Iowa, so I'm finding my own sunshine today through Carnival Cruise Line! This sure looks enticing, I'm finding a lot to share with you.

We will be cruising on the Carnival Sensation that cruises from Port Canaveral  and through the Bahamas. Travel with Bender offers insight on what the Carnival Sensation  has to offer and more. Our cruise looks to be a fun filled family adventure! Just what I thought, there does not seem to be a lack of activity for kids of all ages.

While I'm cruising for more great information on cruising with Carnival, I'm reminded that there is no shortage of kids activities. Travel Mamas offers great insight when it comes to cruising with kids on Carnival Cruise Line. From the arcade, teddy bear workshops, to lots of water activities; there looks to be a variety of activities to keep kids busy.

It looks like Carnival Cruise Line offers a great spa opportunity for those looking for the ultimate spa experience. Travel writer Karon Warren shares her spa experience aboard the Carnival Fantasy when it comes to all you need to know about the spa experience while cruising with Carnival Cruise Line. If a spa is on your radar while cruising, it looks like this should be booked a few weeks in advance. Spas look to be very popular when it comes to cruising.

My dreary, rainy day in Iowa today is turning into a day dreamer's paradise. I'm finding a lot to share when it comes to cruising with Carnival Cruise Line. FamilyTravel offers 11 Reasons To Cruise! Seriously, they had me with Reason #1.  These are 11 amazing reasons to cruise- makes me want to cruise now!

I love how Jessica with Suitcases and Sippy Cups shares how cruising is a great opportunity to do things that you normally would not do! Jessica and her family cruised on the Carnival Magic and are now believers that cruising is the perfect family vacation! Jessica is making a believer out of this Mom. As I sit and look at the ice outside my window, I want to cruise now.

We depart from Port Canaveral. We are staying at Ron Jon Resort: Cape Caribe the night before we cruise and the night after we cruise. The cool thing about this- we don't have to pay for parking at the port. Stay tuned......I've got much more to share on Ron Jon Resort: Cape Caribe in 2013! We'll be sharing our trek over to the Port- and I might add, it's a short one! Ron Jon Resort: Cape Caribe is the ideal place to stay before and after you cruise out of Port Canaveral. Stay tuned- I've got more information on saving money while cruising~ Ron Jon Resort: Cape Caribe is your go to resource for saving money while cruising.

I'd love to hear about your experience cruising. Florida is a favorite place of ours and I have a feeling we are going to embrace cruising within a short period of time. Anything tropical is cherished during the Winter months! I'll keep dreaming today and know that in a relatively short period of time we will be cruising into Paradise. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
