Mediterranean Cruise




They say life under the sea is better than anything up here, they also say the best experiences are those you don’t plan, the ones that lack of expectations and, therefore, fill you with surprises not even your best abilities could have achieve for. That was our experience when cruising for the first time on board of Brilliance of the Seas, on which we were invited to enjoy the music festival of Shipsomnia.

Although our invitation was centered into enjoying the music, the good company and the unlimited use of the facilities, after we celebrated a musical festival just a few days before, we decided to make our adventure the most hedonist one (and a bit decadent, to be honest) on board of a cruise that would take us from Barcelona to Ibiza and Séte.

Dicen que la vida en el mar es más sabrosa, también se dice que las mejores experiencias son aquéllas que no planeas, que carecen de expectativas y que, por ende, te llenan de sorpresas que posiblemente tus mejores habilidades no hubiesen podido lograr. Así fue nuestra primera experiencia en un crucero, a bordo del Brilliance of the Seas para celebrar el festival de música Shipsomnia.

Si bien nuestra invitación se centraba en asistir para disfrutar de la música, la buena compañía y el uso ilimitado de las instalaciones, después de haber celebrado un festival de música tan solo unos días antes, decidimos hacer de nuestra experiencia la más hedonista (y un poco decadente, para ser sinceros) a bordo del crucero que nos llevaría por Barcelona hacia Ibiza y Séte.


9:00 Continental breakfast
                 with the bluest view…


Waking up with the first rays of sunlight, far from any urbanization noise except for the narcotic rhythm of the Mediterranean waves, it’s nothing but a unique experience, one that, surprisingly, we didn’t expect from a cruise. To realise that there’s nothing else for you to do except have breakfast, soak in sunscreen and letting yourself go on adventures with Hemingway on a book, it’s one of the most liberating sensations I’ve enjoyed in a while, especially if you’re a workaholic. There’s no wifi here (unless you pay), and the possible incoming calls from the office are so limited the only thing you can do is to laugh about them while thinking tomorrow the office will remain standing. Despertar con los primeros rayos del sol, lejos de cualquier ruido de urbanización a excepción del ritmo narcótico de las olas del Mediterráneo, es una experiencia única y que, sorpresivamente, no esperábamos de un crucero. Darte cuenta que no hay otra cosa que hacer que desayunar, empaparte de protector solar y dejarte llevar por las aventuras de Hemingway en un libro, es la sensación más liberadora de todas, sobre todo si te cuesta despegarte del trabajo. Aquí no hay wifi (a menos que pagues), y las posibles llamadas entrantes de la oficina están tan limitadas que lo único que puedes hacer es reír y pensar que mañana la oficina igualmente seguirá de pie.
10:00-18:00 Soak in the sun; read,
      love, play. Time is non-existent.

21:00 Watch the sunset while
    thinking “What day is it again?”


This is the first post of a trilogy on which I’ll tell you about our ephemera but valuable getaways to small points of the Mediterranean you need to visit if you’re within the area, whether you let yourself get hypnotize by the cruising experience or do it by airplane. Because it’s officially summer and everything is doable.

Este es el primer post de una trilogía en donde contaré nuestras efímeras pero valiosas escapadas a pequeños puntos que no puedes dejar de visitar si estás en el Mediterráneo, ya sea que decidas dejarte hipnotizar por la experiencia de un crucero o hacerlo mediante un vuelo. Porque es ya es oficialmente verano, y todo se vale.

  5. Great blog post! I love it that it is not only me talking about the beauties of Mediterranean! The sun, the sea, the air, everything is special here. Have you bathed in the sea? It is simply mesmerising and magical.

    • Hi babe, thanks for commenting. Yes I had! I’m actually not very found of bathing in the Mediterranean because it’s very, very salty. Mexican beaches are way better, tho :) xx
