Cruise Compete

Ok…I need to get back into the blogging swing of things now that the wedding’s over. Sorry… for the past week I’ve been in the process of moving my stuff and getting into the groove of my new life. Unfortunately, I am leaving this friday for my honeymoon (yay!) so there will be another short hiatus next week. I’m still waiting for my wedding photos but when I get those I will blog about the rest of my wedding :)

So the next big thing going on in my life is that I will be turning the big 3-0 in a few weeks (yikes!). I originally wanted to throw a big summer camp type shindig but I realized it was too close to my wedding and I don’t think I could round up enough people when they did all of this traveling just to come to my wedding a few weeks ago. I definitely want to do this one day though so keep an eye out for it.

Instead…I’m going on a cruise! A really short, weekend one though because I have so many trips planned for the rest of the year (one every month!). It will be a 3-day baja cruise which is similar to one I went on with my family last year which was oh so fun! Tell me if you are interested in going!!

So I ended up getting a quote for the cruise for $191/person!! This is a pretty good deal considering it includes all meals, entertainment, and boarding. So how did I get such an amazing price?????

I used this website called Cruise Compete. How it works is that you pick the cruise you want to go on and the dates and then travel agents will email you quotes! You pick the lowest one and book with them. You can also read reviews on the travel agents you get quotes from. It’s pretty cool and very easy! So if you’re into cruises, definitely bookmark this website for future bookings!
