When you’re a mom of two young kiddos, it’s so easy to fall into a routine. Wake up, get the kids ready for school, go to work, respond to emails, pick the kids up, eat dinner, prepare the kids for bed, go to sleep, and wake up and do it all over again. There’s nothing wrong with routine, but after a while it gets a little repetitive.
What’s the easiest way to shake up a routine? Adventure. Adventure fuels my soul.
Last year, my family and I traveled on vacation to Punta Cana. We had never been to the Dominican Republic before, so we were all pretty excited. When deciding what country to travel to, we looked for a place that had a unique culture, where we could experience things that we normally don’t here in Dallas. We picked Punta Cana because it isn’t just your usual tourist destination — this was a place that we’d be able to explore and live like the locals do, even if it was just for a few days. Immediately, we came up with a wish list of activities that we planned to check off. We wanted to explore the various markets, taste the local cuisine, and take in the beauty all around us.
Adventure is just as important to Royal Caribbean as it is to my family. From the moment you board one of their cruise ships, an adventure lies ahead, whether you are on the ship or on the shore. The staff truly encourage you to get out of your comfort zone and explore all of the areas around you. Our family is full of different personalities and we all have different interests so a great benefit to journeying the seas with Royal Caribbean is that there is something for everyone – seriously! I’m a firm believer in trying everything (well almost everything…) at least once and this is a habit that I instill in my children. This beautiful world has so much to offer and we share Royal Caribbean’s love for fun, once in a lifetime experiences, and exploration.
This trip was one to remember, and I can’t wait until the next vacation with my little crew. Royal Caribbean travels to over 250 destinations, so our next adventure could be anywhere – especially on a cruise ship. The sky’s the limit!
