A Frozen Experience At Sea with Celebrity UK.
My little girl loves Anna and Elsa and many days are spent using the two Disney characters as an incentive to motivate positive behaviour. Our Daughter also loves to travel so when I told her we were going on a Frozen themed holiday she was overjoyed.
This year’s cruise would be cruising around the Baltic with Celebrity Uk. One of our itinerary stops would be Tallin, Estonia. I couldn’t think of a city more suited to reenact our search for Queen Elsa’s castle. Our adventure was to start as soon as we boarded our cruise for many reasons…
On board the celebrity eclipse you can enjoy an extensive art collection at sea.
Through the eyes of a four-year-old, Olivia perceives white mountains full of snow, frozen tower’s and gigantic snowflakes. We are in a full blown frozen experience and luckily Mum remembered to pack some small and discreet frozen characters to join in on the fun. Every day whilst we are onboard te celebrity Eclipse we were able to pop past Elsa’s ice palace and enjoy a private child led show. (Not rolling my eyes at all)
The overall feel of the art on board the ship is a cool, contemporary colour pallet.
*Clearly the sculptures and art on board the celebrity Eclipse are no way associated with the Disney cartoon frozen*
we still had a visit to Tallinn to look forward to where we would seek out gothic landmarks, and maybe even a castle amongst the cobblestone walls. Everyone knows the Frozen sisters live in a castle! Right?
The first point of call when we arrived in Tallinn was to visit a small cut flower market. Well, I was totally in my element and Olivia was totally in hers. As we skipped down the flower filled streets we imagined being in a scene from Frozen Fever. The Frozen sequel! The colours were amazing and the sun was shining, Tallinn is a real easy town to explore and includes a palace, a cathedral and a castle. We climbed Toompea hill and traipsed around the castle walls. At the top of the hill, there were a few shops and interesting things to see. We visited a church and purchased some rosary beads… a tradition of ours when abroad.
Learning about the different culture and seeing street vendors in traditional costumes was a real eye opener for Olivia. Our little girl really enjoyed her day in Tallinn and was happy to play along with our fairytale frozen escapade. I was impressed by how much we managed to fit into one day. I was also impressed at the fitness level of my thrill seeking child, we climbed hundreds of steps and raced around the medieval castle walls.
I am looking forward to seeing what story line we will be following on our next yearly cruise. As a Mother I am secretly hoping that we will move past the Frozen stage before our next sailing.
Many thanks for stopping by!
