Best bikini tip and Quantum of the Seas cruise planner

Good morning from New York, The Big Apple!

I´m just going to land a few minutes in the lobby of our hotel to update you. Although it´s been vacation time, our schedule has been non-stop. There shall be no doubt that I have gotten the most out of my days in London and New York prior to our two weeks cruise to Bahamas (baby)!! Mom has made sure that we have loads to do, and it´s all been so memorable! I´ve taken a lot of photos and I´ll put them on the blog eventually.

We´re soon off to New Jersey to go on the world´s largest cruise ship, Quantum of the seas!! I really don´t know what to expect, but I think it will be awwweesome! Like mind-blowing! Just have a look at this:

I arrived in London with a full luggage. But no bikinis or sunscreen! Haha! Well prepared for a 12 days cruise in other words… Well, I had bikinis from last year, but I just thought that this is the perfect opportunity to fill up with new ones, and shop 😀 In a mad dash, in between nails, hair styling and body prep, I found four (!) bikinis at River Island in Canary Wharf and Aeropostale in Times Square, New York! QUANTUM OF THE SEAS, HERE WE COME!
