Monopoly Lifesized adventuring around the board

Did you know that Monopoly has been played all over the world since 1903?

For those who don’t know what Monopoly is. It is a multi-player property themed board game. The game involves players rolling two dice to move around the board, buying and trading properties, and developing them into houses and hotels. Players can collect rent from their opponents. Money can also be gained or lost through Chance, Community Chest and the Tax square. Players can also end up in jail. The ultimate goal of the game though is to buy as many locations possible, build properties on them as to charge rent and make other players bankrupt.

Now you can play Monopoly unlike you have ever played it before, this time in REAL LIFE as you walk around the board, buy property, build houses but you will for sure be wanting to avoid being sent to jail!

I was lucky enough to be invited along to the press night of Monopoly Lifesized in which I took along a few friends of mine to compete against other teams as we travelled around a board of Monopoly.

Question is did we end up broke or rich, what you think?

Monopoly Lifesized

Hasbro and Gamepath Entertainment have combined forces and now bring to London a lifesized Monopoly in which you can physically walk around the board, collect real estate, charge people rent and play games to gain extra money.

Princess themed seacation cruises onboard Regal Princess and Sky Princess

People who know me call me cruise ship crazy, why? as I just love to cruise when it comes to taking my holidays throughout the year. I tend to do around three a year but I have never cruised with Princess before until now.

During the pandemic of 2020/2021 cruises have been hit badly and not been able to sail loosing lots of money sadly. However this summer 2021 the government let a select few cruise lines sail from Southampton but sailing to nowhere just out to sea, calling it a seacation. Even though there was not going to be any port stops I did not care as like many other cruise lovers we just wanted to be back out on the open sea and enjoy everything onboard as it has been too long. There is two particular well known cruise liners in which me and my husband we normally sail with but this time around we thought we would try out Princess. During this summer they sailed out with a few mini cruises which just sailed the high seas along the UK coast. Looking over the sailing choices we decided to enjoy two of their 3 night special themed seacation cruises.

There was three themed cruises to choose from Mind, Body & Soul, Culinary Stars and Comedy Cruise all of which consisted of well known celebrities from TV.

I and my husband we opted to do the Culinary Stars on board Sky Princess* plus the Comedy themed cruise on board Regal Princess and both were as equally as entertaining.

Princess cruises

Princess started out in 1965 with a single ship cruising to Mexico. Since then Princess has grown and has become one of the premiere cruise lines in the world. In April 2003 Princess became a part of Carnival Corporation.

The Princess fleet presently consists of Caribbean Princess, Coral Princess, Crown Princess, Diamond Princess, Emerald Princess, Enchanted Princess, Grand Princess, Island Princess, Majestic Princess, Regal Princess, Royal Princess, Ruby Princess, Sapphire Princess and Sky Princess.

Princess has spent over 50 years sharing a world of exploration with their guests they look forward to continuing their journey. With new ships currently under construction with a new generation, dual-fuel LNG powered ships on order, Princess is the fastest growing premium cruise line in the industry.

Their fleet carries more than a million passengers each year to more worldwide destinations than any other major line. Apart from 2020/2021 when they were hit hard as they had to halt all services due to the pandemic.

Now up and sailing again with 3/4 mini UK seacations for now Princess are back giving passengers a great and safe experience and in a responsible and covid safe manner.

When they can start to sail abroad again Princess sails to a staggering 380 destinations, 7 continents for you to discover and explore.
