Travelling the world is glamorous. Until it isn’t. Things can go wrong in the most unexpected ways and most inconvenient times. I wish I could say the last 5 years of travel has been 100 percent smooth sailing. But in the moments when plans went pear-shaped or events took a turn for the worst, I was glad to have travel insurance.

When you work hard every day, all year long you need a really relaxing break. And there’s nothing quite as therapeutic as unwinding on a majestic cruise ship sailing into the sunset towards a dreamy tropical destination. Whilst there was no shortage of fun, family-friendly activities I enjoyed with my kids on-board the Carnival Miracle, I also discovered a bunch of reasons why parents love cruising to Hawaii with Carnival. It’s so much fun being an adult too!
This was my kids 6th open-ocean cruise so they knew the drill. The buffets, the soft service ice-cream dispenser, the hot tubs and of course, kids club.

Cruising the Hawaiian islands for 15 days on the Carnival Miracle sounds like the perfect family vacation… and it is! Warm weather, swimming pools, endless buffets, sandy beaches and the Aloha spirit. To make the trip complete, here’s a few shore excursions tips and hacks that will work regardless if you’re strapped for cash or rolling in it.

I like Thanksgiving. Heralding from Australia, I can’t say I’ve got heart-warming childhood memories of family get-togethers on Thanksgiving Day. It was just another normal day Down Under. But there’s something about the spirit of this holiday which transcends cultures and countries. A universal understanding that a grateful heart is a happy one. And this particular day is a perfect time to stop and reflect on the reasons we have to be grateful.
