Surprises for Tyne from MSC Cruises!

Yes I know, I've mentioned it before....but I am now literally counting down the days until we get to sail off on a lovely 10 day cruise holiday on this beautiful ship....the MSC Opera!

We're heading to Amsterdam, Le havre, Portugal, Guernsey, Vigo and Bilbao from Southampton on 27th September and I absolutely cannot wait!

With that in mind, it was a lovely coincidence and surprise when a few weeks ago Tyne received a lovely box of nautical themed treats in the post from MSC Cruises themselves!

Here is a look at the goodies he was very kindly sent: 

Some lovely arts & crafts supplies and a great Ocean Creatures sticker book. 
The egg shaped crayons are great as they're aimed at children from 12 months plus, they fit perfectly into his little hands and he already had great fun colouring in with them!

I absolutely LOVE this Usborne Big Book Of Ships....I can't wait to get it out closer to when we set sail to tell Tyne all about the different kinds of ships....

And of course point out the fabulous cruise ships just like the one we'll be going on!

Tyne's favourite treat was this fab pirate bath ship, he's been absolutely delighted splashing about with this in the bath tub!

And MY favourite thing was this gorgeous nautical themed outfit from one of my favourite Baby Clothes brands, Junior J!

What is great about this is that we received it in size 18-24 months which means it should fit Tyne perfectly for when we go on our MSC cruise....

The hoody is nice and warm for when we sail out of Southampton, and I just love the stripe detail on the bottoms! Isn't this the perfect little outfit for him to wear to set sail on his first cruise holiday?!

I filmed a little video showing Tyne opening his box of goodies from MSC, if you'd like to see his excitement please take a look below!

We'd like to say a massive thank you to the very kind people at MSC Cruises for sending us these lovely goodies....we can't wait to set sail with you for Tyne's very first cruise holiday in September!
