Cruising the Western Mediterranean {Guest Post: Kate}

Good Morning Pink Persistence readers! My name is Kate, and you can find me blogging over at Green Fashionista. I'm excited to be filling in for the fabulous Pinky while she's taking the trip of a lifetime across the pond. I thought it would be fun to share the Mediterranean cruise I took during my first trip across the pond a few years ago.

Our first stop on our European adventure was in Barcelona, and then it was time to board the Norwegian Epic for a 3 night Mediterranean cruise with stops in Marseille, France and Palma de Mallorca, Spain before finishing off our trip in Lisbon, Portugal. Cruising the Mediterranean was absolutely surreal, such an amazing experience!

Other than Royal Caribbean's Oasis and Allure of the Seas, the Norwegian Epic is the largest ship on the water. It was massive!

*1st drinks of the cruise - of course I got the souvenir cup*

*Svedka Ice Bar ~ $20 admission which includes 2 vodka mixed ice drinks*

*Amazing to look out the window and see the beautiful Mediterranean Sea*

*Main Dining Room*
*Casino Bar*
*H winning us some money at roulette*
*One of my favorite things about cruises is all the food*
So much amazing entertainment on this ship! Blue Man Group, Cirque du Soleil dinner shows in the Spiegel Tent, comedy club, piano bar, Irish pub, jazz club, night club, and dance parties under the stars.

Now if only I could rewind back time for my countdown to look like this...

Make sure to join Kerri, Emily, and I every second Wednesday of the month for Wanderlust Wednesday to link up your favorite travel recaps and wishlists. 

Kate, I totally agree with you, once you go balcony there is no going back. Right now we're enjoying our balcony view on our Eastern Mediterranean cruise, but I think we might need to check out the Western cruise on our next big trip. Thanks so much for guest posting, beautiful! 


  1. I love cruises! I definitely want to do a European Cruise at some point!

  2. I'll be honest, cruises have never appealed to me for some reason. But lately I've been seeing so many amazing pictures and have heard so many great things about them! Maybe I should give one a try! xo, Kristina

  3. Our first trip to Europe was on a cruise. We loved seeing so many different countries, but I think our next trip over there would be staying directly in the country. The cruise was great but not sure I am a huge fan of the timelines and schedules needed to be back at the boat and missing out on the night time experiences. Yours looks amazing though! Thanks for sharing :)

  4. I haven't been on a cruise since high school, this makes me want to try one again, especially one to Europe!

  5. Kate's cruise through the Mediterranean sounds magical! And yes a balcony room is needed for a cruise like this one.

  6. This sounds so amazing! I would love to do this.


I LOVE LOVE LOVE your comments! Make my p!nk day and leave me some love!
