Stampin’ Up! Mediterranean Cruise – Barcelona Day 1

Happy Monday!!

I finally feel like I'm catching up with the world! Wowzers, the jet-lag last week was crazy and most of the week I felt like I was walking around like a zombie!!

Emily and I had an AMAZING time on our Mediterranean Cruise and I can't wait to share it with you! It truly was a trip of a lifetime and I have my loyal customers and amazing downline to thank for making this dream come true!! Today I'm going to share highlights with you from Day 1 of our trip as we travel to Barcelona Spain and board the Norwegian Epic Cruise ship.


Sitting in the London airport getting ready to board our plane to Toronto.

We were so excited for our adventure together!


The best thing about Incentive Trip is meeting your friends at the airport.

We were so excited to spend our week with Rose, Kevin and their daughter Amanda!!


When we landed in Barcelona, Stampin' Up! had arranged for bus transportation to the pier.

But because we arrived around 9am and couldn't board the ship till 12pm, they decided to

give us a tour of Barcelona City. This was once an arena that was now turn into a shopping center.

Just look at the detail on that building!!


One of the things that I loved while on the tour was seeing all the beautiful buildings!


Our bus driver had stopped at one look out spot so we could stretch,

grab a snack and check out this gorgeous view of Barcelona!!


We could also see our ship the Norwegian Epic sitting in dock!


Our home for the week!


Our room had a balcony! My favourite thing was sitting on the balcony and

listening to the waves crash against the boat!! Just being on the water was relaxing to the soul!!


The Norwegian Epic delivered some tasty desserts to our room as a welcome to their ship!! YUMMY!!


Our first visit to the Stampin' Up! Hospitality room. Stampin' Up! set up us this fabulous room,

so we could chat with Stampin' Up! Employees and Corporate Members, mingle with fellow demonstrators,

spin daily for prizes, check out the amazing displays and of course eat some chocolate while we were there!!


One of the highlights of our day was returning to our cabin each night to find a pillow gift waiting for us!

I forgot to take a picture of the inside, I was so excited!

Our gift for the night was a gorgeous Stampin' Up! hat that we could wear during the week and

tickets to the Cirque Dreams and Dinner Show for Monday night!!

After traveling and being up for almost 24 hours, let just say that Emily and I were exhausted and called it a night!! Tomorrow, I will be sharing highlights from our day at sea!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
