Fisher-Price, Royal Caribbean and My Kids

Our family recently took a trip aboard the Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas with Fisher-Price. Yet we didn’t go alone. We went with 15 of our most favorite and fun families, our fellow Fisher-Price Ambassadors from Canada and the US, the #FisherPriceMoms.

The mission? Learn about Royal Caribbean’s partnership with Fisher-Price and what that means for travelling families. Yet, there is of course wonderful side effects to our epic adventure: sun, sand, swim, food, palm trees and a whole lot more. Including a ton of laughter, smiles and in the midst of everything, wonderful memories to cherish forever.

So how better than to explain what parts of this trip meant the most to the kids, than to ask the kids themselves. To show #FisherPriceOnRoyal through the eyes and mouths of my very own Fisher-Price children. Literally, this is their first official review on My Organized Chaos.

A very excited conversation with Katie:

I miss the ship, Mom. I want to see the ocean and the pretty water”

Fisher-Price, Royal Caribbean and My Kids

“At Adventure Ocean we got to dance. and they had games and friends”

“Then after Adventure Ocean, we’d go to the party downstairs. Pretty lights, pizza and cupcakes!”

.

Sophia, wanting to state her favorites about the trip, was very quick with her best memory.

“Mom. Mom. Mom! My most-favorite part is the cars. We drove on the ship. On the ocean!” {PowerWheels for the kids!}

“we went really REALLY fast!”

“Katelyn drove a car, Mom. I’ll do that one next time, ok?”

“and the Little People Birthday Party the other night. I like birthdays!”

“and, oh and we played with the train. and the babies. That was fun too”


.

Isabelle was eager to get her opinion in, finally!

“That boardwalk is the best, I’m so glad it was there. We went on the carousel so many times!”

“I think I lived in that round pool for a week, Mom”

“But, I liked visiting Cozumel and Labadee too, I swam more there too. But, we really should have bought that hammock …”

“And, I met the best friends ever … I miss them”

This was the point in the conversation where I stopped asking the girls questions and just replied,
“I miss them too”. I absolutely miss everything we experienced….

I’m happy we took along the girls’ Fisher-Price Kid Tough Digital Cameras {we brought both the new and old versions of this product, you can learn about them both at the link}.

With their own sturdy camera, the kids got to capture their favorite parts of our family trip. Now that we are home, I can flip through their photos and know what meant the most to them. Plus, they are thrilled to show others all the photos that THEY took themselves.

Usually I’m the sole shutterbug everywhere we go, yet perspective is welcome. So my biggest tip to families traveling with children is to pass that camera around, let everyone capture some of their own favorite memories. You’ll get some great photos that way, I promise. As a side bonus, Mom might actually be in a photo or two!

  1. I absolutely love this post. It was so nice vacationing with your family, spending time with some of my favorite people and doing it all on an incredible ship. The integration of adult and kid friendly activities is perfect because we all know that carousel is not just for kids!

  2. Wow what an amazing time. Every looks like they really enjoyed it!

  3. OMGosh! I am so jealous! My kids would love a trip like that!

      My travel agent sent me vacation sales last week and the Allure of the Seas was on it! {Wester Caribbean Cruise}. I think it was $440 pp for the week. Not bad, especially if you can find a seat sale. Even better for those close to the ports!

  4. It’s so cute to read it through their words. I totally think the cars are cool too.

    • That was a perfect activity to get the kids really excited, and they had a variety of Powerwheels too. Thanks for the compliment Stephanie!
      :)

  5. That is beyond priceless! We love that sweet camera too. I have always lived little people toys. I actually called my daycare that at one point. When my girls wee babies we fostered and ran a daycare. It was a staple here to have all the little people environments to foster creativity.

    Thank you for sharing your family vacation with me! ALWAYS enjoy your stories and photos!

  7. What fun, it looks like you had a blast. Your pictures are so fun too, thanks for sharing them!

  8. Thank you for sharing with all of us!! Looks like a truly amazing adventure! xo

  9. Wow! This is an amazing partnership. It looks like you had so much fun! The boardwalk looks like a blast.

    • Tammi says:

      That was one of the highlights for kids, for sure. But, adults were on the carousel and rock climbing wall too, don’t get me wrong. Just a fun gathering place, and never crowded too, which is so nice!

    Love this perspective, so true!

  11. WOW! What an awesome experience for your family. I’m glad you had a great time!

    We are going on the Allure *next* Thanksgiving (I can’t believe I have to wait a year). Are the Power Wheels always there, or was that just for your trip? My kids would love that. Well, along with the gazillion other things to do on that ship. :-)

    • Tammi says:

      The PowerWheels are a regular activity, open to all. They do it at least twice in the week at the basketball courts. So excited for your trip, and plenty of time to plan!
      Tip: if there’s a show {Chicago was on stage when we cruised} or the comedy show – pre-book your tickets before the trip. Those shows are oftentimes sold out. You could wait at the doors an hour before, and try to get standby, but who really likes waiting in lines?
