Did you know today is #nationalplanforvacationday 🌏? What’s your idea of a “vacation” these days and what are you planning and saving for? For us, our backyard is our getaway for now, and we’d just LOVE to actually catch a fish at the local lake (haha!). Yet, we’re spending time dreaming of places like: Alaska, Antarctica, the Caribbean Islands, Japan, Northern Europe, and the inviting shores of Mexico! #keepdreaming #cruise
Welcome to our new followers! We’re so glad you’re here! You’ll always find positivity and support here! A little about us here at CruiseTipsTV... I’m Sheri, a California based Mama and Wife (22 years married this year!). My family and I began creating tip videos for cruise travelers on YouTube in 2013. We had NO professional training and very little experience with video- aside from filming weddings for a few years (even when I was 8 months pregnant!). Not only that, but I was terrified of public speaking until I volunteered on a nonprofit board of directors and faced my fear! Due to the global health crisis, we haven’t left our state in nearly a year- we’re playing it safe and saving our travel pennies (and vacation time) for safer times. I have a full time job which I LOVE and have worked for the same organization for 23 years. We started CruiseTipsTV to inspire cruise travelers to create their best travel experiences through planning and the power of attitude, so we have created HUNDREDS of videos about travel tips and tricks, so you can make every cruise your dream cruise! Like you, we have a set amount of vacation time each year. We love to spend those vacation days on the high seas, with our 11 year old boy (aka Jr. Editor) and over the years, we’ve recorded our cruise adventures in the form of vlogs, ship tours and port day “how to” videos. Truly, our favorite thing to do is to HELP OTHERS create their dream travel experiences. With over 500 videos on our two YouTube channels (CruiseTipsTV & SheriTV), you can find tips on just about anything cruise & travel related - from packing for a cruise to Alaska to what it’s like to take a food tour in Sicily, and even some fashion and beauty talk! We’re surrounded by an amazing collection of travel loving friends who have nurtured our community over the past 7 years. We welcome YOU and we invite you to visit our bio to learn more about us, and how we serve our community! We love learning from YOU too, so if you have any topic suggestions for us, please share them! If you have questions, please ask. Love, Sheri & The Boys
My husband is a smart one- he says “Every Day is Valentine’s Day!” No cards. No flowers. No gifts. And DEFINITELY no crowded restaurants for us. BUT, like my friend @em_hanley so beautifully said- we can totally love #ValentinesDay through our kid(s). And we do! Junior made custom cards for his friends which we’ll safely drop at their houses today. What are you up to today? Xoxo Sheri & The Boys
🌸A little in-state getaway was just what we needed. The weather was kind to us, the @hotelmaya provided cruisey-vibes and we feel refreshed and restored. 🌸It was SO fun to see Carnival Panorama & the other ships in the area. Check out the latest video on our YouTube channel to see a livestream from the terminal near #carnivalpanorama - You can actually HEAR the captain making announcements- we were THAT close! We’re getting closer friends - cruising will be back, and it will be better than ever! 🌸How was your Spring Break this year?
It’s been 14 months since our last family hotel stay & it’s hard to put into words how it feels to be back on the “playa at the maya” at @hotelmaya - our favorite pre-cruise property in Long Beach, California. It will be a few months before we can cruise again, and we were anxious to be close to the sea, and some ships!! Our room has a view of #carnivalpanorama & #queenmary - as well as the #hotelmaya fire pits where we fully plan to roast s’mores and feel the sand beneath our toes for a few days.
Ever get the feeling you’re “doing” a lot, but forgetting to just BE. That’s been us. Today we took a vacation day. We drove to the coast, sang in the car, ate at a restaurant (outside of course) for the first time since November, and we “did” nothing. It felt good to BE a family, to BE by the shore, and to BE free to enjoy this beautiful place we call home. Workaholics - I see you. We gotta take breaks to *breathe* and re-unite with our our creativity and spark every so often. It’s really okay to BE and not DO.
Hey Cruisers! For many years, our community has reached out to ask how they can directly support our work creating travel films & educational cruise videos. The answer has always been, and will continue to be that watching, listening and engaging with our YouTube, Social, Website, and Podcast content is the BEST way to directly show your appreciation. For those of you who would like to take that support to the next level, and to help us to continue to create FREE content and keep sponsorships to a minimum, we’ve decided to start a membership. As a founding member of our “Backstage Crew”, you’ll have access to a monthly VIDEO recording of our podcast and some other cool perks like member only live chats. Our free videos, vlogs & podcasts WILL continue, and will be the pillar of the CruiseTipsTV Community as they have for the past 8 years. ❤️Visit the link in our bio to learn more about becoming a founding member & watch our welcome video. Welcome to our Backstage Crew! Xoxo Sheri & The Boys
We’re just a WEE bit excited! Soon we will be spending a few wonderful spring days at one of our favorite spots. For years, we’ve booked @hotelmaya for our pre cruise stays in Long Beach, California so it only seemed fitting to head back to “the playa” for our FIRST overnight hotel stay as a family in nearly a year and a half. We plan to do a little “ship spotting” in the area, enjoy the property to it’s fullest (their safety protocols are amazing!), dine at @fuegolb and take advantage of some outdoor family fun! LOTS of pics & stories coming next week!
