Loving Our #CruiseSmile Smiles



The lapping of gentle waves as I read a novel on my balcony. Exploring new cities and seas with my good friends. Laughing til’ my cheeks hurt as we enjoy the entertainment. These are all some of my favorite things about cruising. Its just so….relaxing.

Did you know that October is National Plan a Cruise Month? Well my friends it’s October 1st, so that means it’s time to get planning! (Kristin sorry if you have too many voicemails of me begging for our next girls cruise getaway! Mama needs a vacay!) To celebrate this planning time, the cruise industry decided to launch #CruiseSmile, an exciting chance to win one of 31 cruise vacations from 23 different cruise lines awarded each day, from October 1 – 31st! With someone winning every day, I’d say it’s time to get entering!!

The cruise prizes are simply incredible and include  a seven-night luxury voyage to Tahiti and the Society Islands in the South Pacific, an eight-day European river cruise on the Seine River from Paris, a magical family-friendly three-night Bahamian voyage at sea and even a 14-day Far-East Discovery cruise visiting exotic ports throughout Southeast Asia.  Ummm yes to all of that!

Anyone can enter each day during the sweepstakes by simply submitting a photo featuring a ‘cruise smile’ (That’s ours above. Just look at those grins! ha!) at, or posting their ‘cruise smile’ on Twitter or Instagram using #CruiseSmile and #Sweepstakes. Share your posts for more chances to win. And I’ve broken it down below:

    October is the perfect month for planning cruises because by winter in New England, we are all looking to go to somewhere warm and/or tropical! I’ve never been on a cruise!

    I did not know October was “Plan a Cruise Month” . Winning a Cruise would be so great . I would lounge for the first 2 days then get out and enjoy the activities ( food ) on the ship

    I have never been on a cruise always a little afraid. But with smiles like that I need to really think about it again.
