BlogCamp on Board – The Highlights


Many thanks to everyone who joined us on Wednesday onboard the MSC Preziosa for the first BlogCamp on Board.  BlogCamp has always been a special fixture in the blogging calendar, and this year we feel was the best year yet.  We were absolutely blown away with the amount of photos and posts you all shared on your social media channels before, during and after the event.  Below are a few of our favourite Instagram posts, blog and vlog reviews.

*Please note the posts below are a round up to show some of the highlights of BlogCamp on Board. They are not the competition winners which will be announced by Sally and the team at MSC on the 11th October (best photos) and 5th November (best blog post).  

Blog Camp on Board Instagram Highlights

Alex @lambandbear shares her excitement about her first time onboard a ship in this post…

Kacie @therarewelshbitblog was among the many of us to share a photo of the stunning crystal Swarovski staircase.  It’s hardly surprising that this was THE most photographed feature onboard with each sparkly step being worth between €8k – €10k!

Candace @buckets_of_tea shared a mouth watering photo collage of her tasty lunch onboard.

How fabulous was lunch? #cruise #cruising #cruiseship @msccruisesofficial @hibs100 #blogcamponboard

Charly @charly_dove shared a great shot of her in the sparkly atrium.

Emma-Louise from @evenangelsfallblog shared a fab pic of our two best dressed bloggers at BlogCamp on Board – AK & Sara Jayne…

I feel like this photo sums up my day at #BlogCamponBoard best – spending the day with like minded people and having a giggle! AK and Sara-Jayne totally looked the part in their nautical dresses! I was really nervous beforehand because my anxiety makes me feel uncomfortable in large groups of people and my claustrophobia means I'm not at ease when I feel 'trapped'. This meant that a blogging conference on a cruise ship was a little scary for me. I need not have worried. The day was brilliant, largely down to how lovely the other bloggers were. The lovely @chelseamamma gave me a lift with other local #bournemouthbloggers @amy_everythingmummy @charliemoos and @thegermanwife and it was really nice to get to know them all a bit better during the day. The sessions in the afternoon I attended on podcasting by @iamalisonperry & brands/metrics with @tots100 were both so useful. I'm so pleased this was my first blogging conference as it was the perfect way to meet more of the blogging community. Bring on the next one! A huge thanks to Sally & co and to the lovely crew for @msccruisesofficial who let us spend the day on their beautiful ship! #blogcamponboard #excitingtimesahead #bloggingconference #msccruises #tots100 #suchalovelyday
