This Chocolate Cake Batter Protein Shake is like a big slice of chocolate cake blended into a rich and creamy shake! What could be better than joining chocolate cake and a milkshake that is actually good for you!?! This shake makes an excellent breakfast or snack, and is a great way to celebrate the day! In all of my shakes I use DESIGNER WHEY 100% Premium Whey Protein Powder! It tastes awesome, is affordable,...

My family and I just got back from a wonderful week on the Norwegian Getaway, the cruise line’s newest ship! We all were counting down the days to leave freezing Michigan as this winter has been insanely cold with extreme amounts of snow. We flew to Miami where we boarded the ship.
It was such a neat ship! We were on the second sail after it was built. We first explored the ship!
But the very first thing we did was get ice cream, of course! They had a self-serve frozen yogurt machine! Frozen yogurt is me and my sister’s FAVORITE thing, so we made sure we got our share fix of it on the trip ;).
The next morning, me, my husband, sister, and her husband did a spinning class. It was so hard, but a lot of fun. We definitely took a lot of rest days from working out, but it felt good to move our bodies a few times a week for sure! We just made sure we did it in a fun enjoyable way! :)
Nighttime on the ship was something we all looked forward to. Every night a duo, Summer Breeze, would play contemporary music at the Atrium lounge. We enjoyed relaxing with coffee while playing cards. The last night at seat they had a fireworks show where we danced the night away.
Our first port was St. Maarten. We got off the ship around 10am and explored the local shops.
After we enjoyed some lunch back on the ship, we did an excursion of ATV riding.
That night we went to Teppanyaki, a Japanese Hibachi style restaurant. The food was DELICIOUS and by far my favorite meal on the ship. Our chef, Mel, was hilarious. He sang throughout the whole cooking process!
The following day we ported in St. Thomas. It was insanely beautiful! We did a day at the beach. The beach we went to, Magen’s Bay, has been noted to be one of the world’s most beautiful beaches! It sure was!
My sister and I made a sand snowman…thinking of the -20 degree days back in Michigan of course! ;)
Back on the ship that evening, we went to one of the comedy shows. The evening activities that the cruise had planned were tons of fun! Another night we went to dueling pianos… probably one of my favorite shows all week!
Another activity that was unforgettable was the Newlywed Game Show that my sister and brother-in-law got picked to be in. They got married 8 months ago, so they were the perfect contestants for the newly married couple!
My next favorite dinner was at Moderno’s, a brazilian steakhouse. This restaurant was so neat! It was all you could eat meat, which the guys of our family loved! The servers bring around several different types of meat on huge skewers. They had an enormous salad bar as well!
Sean and I also took a night away from the family to enjoy a date night at one of the restaurants. This is a really great part about going on a cruise with your family… You can all be on the same ship, but enjoying different things, or come together every day/night if you choose!
Our last stop before heading back to Miami was to the Bahamas. We walked through the Atlantis Hotel and went to one of their beaches. Beautiful water!
It truly was an enjoyable week. The best part of it all…. time with my family with no cell phones or internet. It was quite refreshing to “unplug” and spend time with those that I love!
I hope we brought some sunshine home to Michigan and to you guys! Hope you all have a beautiful day! xo Katie
