Having fun with “Shrek” and the gang at Universal Studios Hollywood

A few days ago we wrote a blog post about how a trip to Disneyland before or after your Cruise from LA is a great thing to do but if you’ve already been there you can check out Universal Studios Hollywood instead.

And as mentioned, Cruises from LA go to cool places like Hawaii, the Panama Canal & Mexico so not a bad place to sail from at all when you see those options! 🙂

So recently…

…we spent the day being entertained at the Halloween themed Universal Studios Hollywood

…where we screamed a little on some fast rides and watched some entertaining shows.

After that, we filled our hungry tummies with a fabulous Brazilian Steakhouse dinner at Samba at Universal Studios Hollywood “City Walk” where they come around to your table with super long skewers that contain deliciously flavorful roasted meats, ready to cut off a fresh slice for you table side.

Did we like it?

…let’s just say we were “more” then happy with our dining experience!

And then after our day at Universal Studios Hollywood we went to the Kodak Theatre. Yes, the very same Theatre that hosts The Academy Awards each year. We went there to see “Iris” a Cirque Du Soleil production show…

…what can we say about that?

Well, it was our 15th Cirque show, so we “could” proclaim to be expert reviewers by now :-)… but all kidding aside, it was FABULOUS!!! They are so innovative, each show adds a new twist and something uniquely different each time that keeps us coming back again and again to be entertained.

We had a great day as you can imagine at Universal Studios Hollywood!

But check out our video below for the proof!

We hope you enjoyed our Universal Studios Hollywood video and that you have the chance to Cruise from LA soon and get to check out this fun theme park before or after your Cruise!

We Appreciate YOU!
