I never expected to be a cruiser. In 2013, Michael, before we were married, invited me to join him on a cruise. I said yes, but I really didn’t think I was the cruise type. I was wrong. Now, I can’t get enough of them, and they have inspired my entire business.

I launched this community for moms after returning from my first sailing adventure with our daughter in 2017. That cruise was a little disappointing because we didn’t learn about all the resources available for babies on the ship until after we were home. This community is here to make sure you have all the information you need to get the most out of your vacation.

"Jamie took a passion of her love of cruising and her love of family and wanted to spread the word on how families can enjoy cruising on Royal Caribbean," Freed said.

"Her social media presence on Facebook was very popular with helping families understand cruising as a great vacation and provided tips for families. She was able to then transition her passion into selling cruises and, in such a short time, created an amazing business ranking as one of the top Dream Vacations franchise owners," Freed added.

Hi, I am Megan Heilbrun and I am a mom to three cruise loving kids and a Husband who loves to cruise like me! My kids are 9, 7 and almost 5 and they all started cruising between 6-8 months old (best time to start)! My middle son has Cerebral Palsy and we have been so impressed with how the cruise lines handle special needs and I find so much joy in helping other families navigate this space to ensure they have the best vacation possible! If we aren't cruising for our family vacations, you can find us at Disney World making more memories! I love helping other families find the perfect fit with the right ship, perfect ports and length of time on board! We have spent lots of time on the Oasis and Freedom class ships but I have sailed every Royal Caribbean class! I would love to help you and your family create exciting memories on a Cruise or at Disney!

Hi, I'm Stephanie! I have been cruising for many years, well before children and for several years since my husband Steve and I became parents. We live in NH, and have three children. We escape the cold winters as much as possible, and jump on a cruise! Our family has sailed many Oasis Class ships, and Freedom Class ships and have stayed in many cabin types, including Interior, ocean view, ocean view balconies, boardwalk balconies, even some suites! Our family really enjoys the Oasis of the Seas! Since we have older kiddos, we take full advantage of all the amenities Oasis has to offer! My current favorite Islands are Aruba, CocoCay and St Thomas! I can’t wait to help you find the best ship and itinerary for you and your family!

Hi there travelers, I’m Stacey and I’m a boy mom living in Central Florida! We absolutely love going to Disney and Universal Orlando, and as an annual passholder, I am quite knowledgeable about the parks. My family’s favorite vacations are cruises and all-inclusive resorts, especially Royal Caribbean and Sandals/Beaches.

Being a military spouse has given me a deeper appreciation of making the most of family time while my previous career in healthcare bolstered my love of helping others and my attention to detail. I would love to assist you in making cherished memories!

Let me help you experience the world, one adventure at a time!

I have been cruising Royal Caribbean since I was 9 years old. I fell in love with cruising immediately on my first cruise on Monarch of the Seas in 1996 and haven't stopped cruising since. I grew up in NJ, lived in Florida for 13 years, then moved to Georgia in 2018. My husband Jon and I love cruising so much that we got married on Allure of the Seas in 2012. Living in Georgia and now with two *wild* young boys, we go cruising any chance we can get! Our favorite cruise lines are Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, and Disney. I have sailed in every category of cabins on various cruise lines including interior, ocean view, a variety of balcony types, suites, and Star Class/Retreat. My favorite ships are Wonder of the Seas & Independence of the Seas and my favorite island is CocoCay. I can’t wait to talk to you about cruising and find the perfect ship and cabin for your family!

I am originally from Pennsylvania, but then moved to Central Florida in 2001. I have 18+ years of working in the hospitality industry, and 10 of those were spent working at Walt Disney World. I met my husband while we were both working at Disney, got engaged at Cinderella’s Castle, and even had a Disney Fairytale Wedding. We are former foster parents of 6 years and adopted our 2 children in March 2022. With living only 30 minutes from Disney World, my family and I frequent the parks and have over 800+ room nights logged in at the various Disney resorts. Besides Disney, my other passion is cruising! Once I am on board, that is my true "home away from home." My family and I cruise a few times a year. I have enjoyed the following cruises: 1 NCL, 1 MSC, 8 Disney (including the inaugural Mediterranean Cruise), and 30+ with Royal Caribbean. Being a mom of a very active 2 and 3 year old, I am also very experienced in traveling with little ones.
With all this experience behind me and my passion for travel - I look forward to helping you on your next family adventure, wherever that may take you!

I am the mother of two boys, Joseph (6) and Jude (2). I have been married to my husband Dustin for 10 years. Whether it’s camping, cruising or traveling to Hawaii, we love to explore new places. I also enjoy being the friend who organizes a cruise from time to time with my girlfriends, even if just for a long weekend. My current favorite ship is the Wonder of the Seas, which I went on in February with my family and had the best vacation I have had in years, even with a 2-year-old.

New Jersey

My passion for travel began when I did a semester abroad in Ireland. Over two decades later, exploration has been a nonnegotiable in my life. Whether it's hiking through local state parks, exploring new cities, or sailing across the ocean, I am always chasing that next adventure with my husband and three kids. I believe travel and experiencing new places and different cultures is one of the best ways to grow my children’s awareness and love for others, and my husband and I do our best to take them to as many new places as we can, both in our own state and country, as well as abroad. My experience cruising is varied, I love the atypical itinerary. Exploring places like Alaska, Maine, Nova Scotia, and Europe are just a few of the adventures that have shaped my travel experience.

Whether I’m sailing along the Alaskan coast, zip-lining across the island of St. Thomas, or playing with the dolphins in the warm waters of the Bahamas….THIS is what life’s journey is all about to me. Taking moments in time & turning them into family memories that will last forever. I’m a mom to my sweetest 10 year old - Bennett, our 2 little pups - Gracie & Luke, & wife to my incredible partner in both, life & in travel - Phil. We are a family who love a nice quiet day sailing at sea - equally as much as we love a crazy jam packed day at Disney World. Travel is my love language & I’m thrilled to be a part of this elite team of Moms at Sea! “Adventure is out there!” – Up

Hi, I’m Bre! I’m a wife to my husband of seven years and a mom to a two year old daughter and two sweet black labs Mya and Millie. As someone who didn’t travel growing up - I stepped onto my first cruise ship in 2016 and haven’t stopped talking about my love of cruising since. I knew that I didn’t want to stop traveling once I became a mom and take my children to experience all the things I never did until I was an adult. Needless to say I am creating my own little cruise addict who asks to go cruising almost daily. We enjoy the Caribbean as well as the “pink sand” beaches of Bermuda! I am so excited to be part of Moms as Sea and help other families create memories to last a lifetime.

New York

I’m Melody, party of 3 here! I’m a proud military wife and mom to my sweet little boy, JJ (who loves cruising just as much as his momma). I’m an Upstate, NY girl and only a 3 hour drive to Cape Liberty, NJ!! My love for cruising has taken me all over the Caribbean, Mexico, and Europe. My favorite port being Naples, Italy where I sipped on fresh Limoncello and took in the views of the Amalfi Coast. Happy Sailing! 

Royal Caribbean, NCL





I'm mom to 9 year old boy/girl twins and a 7 year old girl. Born and raised in Minnesota, I feel at home on and around the water. My husband Steve and I have been married for 13 years. We became engaged on our stateroom balcony during our first ever cruise onboard Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas! I believe that cruising is one of the best vacation options for families, allowing the perfect mix of both relaxation and adventure for adults and kids alike. I have personal experience traveling with neurodiverse family members, as well as navigating food allergies/sensitivities onboard. I understand the complexities of traveling with children and love to share the tips and tricks I have learned through my experiences. I truly enjoy the process of cruise planning and helping others experience the magic I have found onboard every ship that I have ever stepped foot on!

Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Carnival, NCL





I’m a former flight attendant turned stay at home mom to a 3 year old boy and 6 year old girl! I love to travel and my absolute favorite way to vacation is cruising! Besides cruising, my favorite land vacation is Hawaii! I’ve visited every Hawaiian island and my husband and I were married on the Big Island. A Hawaiian cruise is on my bucket list! Another fun fact, I absolutely love animals and own 3 rescued cats and a giant dog! When I’m not planning cruises, or taking care of my menagerie of pets and kids, I love drinking coffee, sleeping, red wine, food, shopping, scrolling the gram and talking on the phone. So if you love to talk on the phone about cruising and traveling, I’m your girl.
