Cruising Chronicles: Our Carnival Freedom Adventures on Camera

I’ve shared quite a few stories about our family travel adventures on last year’s sailing on the Carnival Freedom. From hanging out in Camp Ocean, celebrating Molly’s birthday to exploring new ports during the week – we experienced a lot of great things together as a family.

We were asked to participate in Carnival’s new web series “Cruising Chronicles“. A professional film crew followed us around the Carnival Freedom during portions of our cruise to capture all of our adventures and made a fantastic video. It’s a keepsake that I’ll cherish forever and I’m just as excited to be able to share it with you too.

The little look on Molly’s face when the server brought out her birthday cake just melts my heart. I’m not sure how we will ever top Molly’s fourth birthday – celebrating on a Carnival Cruise is pretty top notch!

My other favorite part is watching our faces light up at the Green Eggs and Ham Character Breakfast – what a blast! This video really encompasses our excitement and the fun families can have cruising together.

 More About ‘Cruising Chronicles’ 

“Cruising Chronicles” followed five bloggers – Caroline MurphyAmanda Tinney, the husband-and-wife team of Stefanie and Rick Fauquet and my family. Each of us had our video showing how we experienced the ship.

We were also provided with hand-held, water-resistant video cameras to document our experiences during the trip – some of the footage we took ourselves is featured in our video.

We had a blast working with the film team to create our fun video. I’m hoping we can continue to do more videos in the future — so stay tuned!

What’s your favorite thing to do on a cruise?
