Pacific Jewel dazzles in this month's top spot as
November's Cruise Ship of the Month.
I love seeing older ships transform over the years and sail with contemporary vessels as if they were the new ships on the yard - it's awesome to witness, wouldn't you agree? Pacific Jewel begins majority of her high seas adventures (some may call it a holiday) from Australia - Brisbane or Sydney - and calls to ports all over the South Pacific; Fiji, New Zealand and Australia to name a few.

When I was in the dollar store before a cruise a few months back, it was during graduation season and so there were a lot of yard signs in stock. You know, the signs that say "The Party Is Here" and "Party's This Way." Then I had this humungo cruise ah-ha moment in the store and said, "I could use these on the ship in the club, at sailaway and for the welcome aboard picture." Oh, but I didn't stop there - I added whistles, glow sticks and leis to the mix! Oh yes, we were decked out and I think you should go all out too!
But let me just warn you now. Everyone on the cruise is gonna want to be with your group (so bring extras to share with others). I was tossing glow sticks faster than hot cakes on a Sunday morning in the night club. I told my fam on the next cruise, I'm gonna open up shop in my cabin (CASH ONLY - lol). So for your next cruise be sure to pack a whistle and add a little glow to your evening wear - it'll take your cruise to cruisetacular heights! Don't forget that optimistic attitude and a few clothes too! Until we talk ship again, keep cruising and grooving! Shout-out to everyone on a cruise right now, too! I hope you're living it up, eating my share and hitting the wrong... I mean right notes in karaoke! Peace and much love--Shon!
So, mom and I sat down and narrowed our cruise selection to three ships--Carnival Fascination, Carnival Imagination or Carnival Triumph--and she let ME make the final call (how nice of her, right?)! Well, the rest is history. Now nearly 30 cruises later, I'm still sailing the high seas! From Costa Cruises to NCL and even MSC, I have found that momma truly does know best. So if your mom tells you that a cruise is something you'll love, you better listen because you never know. You may go from vacation lover, to passion sharer, to enjoying an addiction worth living for!

You know, the days of the the Electric Slide and The Macarena are long gone (no offense). I still live those ones, but we've got some new line dancing tunes reigning at the top of the charts~ We're living (or should I say cruising) in the day and age of The Dougie, The Reject [Jerk] and The Wobble! And the wobble is MY JAM and by far my favorite line dance to date! Can you do it? Is it your favorite one, too? Let me know what songs you like grooving to when on a cruise and let's see if we're "in step!" LOL
