Back to Reality

Welcome back home, fellow cruisers. Coming off this cruise, I feel so incredibly blessed. I was so fortunate to have had so many amazing opportunities and experiences that I can't wait to share with you all. All of which make coming back to land that much harder. I'm sure I'm not the only one currently battling post-cruise depression. But as always, I'll be posting a full review with plenty of pictures in the days to come. For me personally, this was the best cruise to date. And I didn't think it would be possible to top the previous ones, but they managed. A few of my quick thoughts coming off this cruise....

Cruise Highlights
  • Best concert ever!! I couldn't believe my ears as we were treated to songs we haven't heard live in over a decade as well as songs I was sure we'd never hear again live. We only had like 4 or so of the usual singles and the rest were all surprises. Just wow!

  • Selfies galore. Every single Backstreet Boy had the patience of a saint this cruise and took so many pictures with the fans. The amount of time they spent taking pics with fans was unprecedented. Nick especially stepped up this year, as compared to years past and it didn't go unnoticed.

  • Wizard of Oz costumes....Nick as Dorothy. I still can't stop laughing.

  • A sneak peak of the documentary screening. While I had actually seen the full movie at the NY screening, it was amazing to see some of it again and be able to ask the boys directly about the film. Only a few more months until we can see the full thing. Can't wait!

  • 2 fun game shows! Lots of laughs both the 90s game show and Don't Forget the Lyrics.

  • Another great beach party at Half Moon Cay. And no rain this year.

  • ABC night- such creative costumes from the fans and the boys. Not sure if it was quite what I was expecting, but it was a lot of fun.

  • The addition of scavenger hunts. Such a fun surprise in the terminal to find out there would be a scavenger hunt with some high stakes prizes on the line. I don't want to give any spoilers, but lets just say I have A LOT more to share on this topic ;)
I also want to say how nice it was meeting many of you on board! I just wish I had more time to spend with everyone. On every cruise I meet more and more amazing fans. I just love the Backstreet Army. I want to hear all your stories and see your pics, so be sure to reach out to me! This is also your official invitation to be a guest blogger to share some of your favorite memories.
