First Thing You Buy for a Cruise? An Otterbox...Gotta Protect that Phone!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


'tis the season to travel and when you're on the go, you simply have to take an Otterbox with you to protect your phone. If you're like me, you've learned this lesson the hard way. Almost every person I know has had a cracked phone screen or broken phone at one point or another, because it's hard to hold onto them all of the time. We take them with us so many places that they're bound to have a spill or two (or twenty). We had an incident today, the phone was charging on my computer, one of my kids didn't realize it and slung it clear across the room accidentally. I admit, I was worried for a second or two, but I picked it up and there was no damage. I have an Otterbox.



I am not the only one in the family who has an Otterbox, both of my grown sons do, and now my son's girl has one too.

One thing you want on a cruise is to protect your phone!
I'm laughing at this picture because it looks like that is my son's hand, I assure that's not his... ;)
Why did she make the switch?? Because she's heard all of our good stories, and she was going on a cruise. There was no way she wanted to lose her one source of communication (there are times on a cruise where you can get a signal) while they were so far from home.


This phone case is cute too. My Otterbox is purple and teal, and I love it, but this Candied Dots protective cover from the Defenders Series is so, so cute! I love polka dots anyway, put them on pink and I'm sold. :)


You can get an Otterbox for most any kind of phone. They're sold in stores all over the world, including phone stores, and they're sold online. They come in all different shapes, colors, designs and sizes. If you don't have one yet, what are you waiting for? The phone you save, could be your own. ;)

Otterbox is such an awesome company. I have an Otterbox for my phone, and it has saved me so many times.

Pat Hatt said...

They sure can do the trick some slick. So far I haven't had a cracked screen, dropped my phone a few times though.

Melissa Chapman said...

I have a phone case and we try to be careful but accidents do happen. I will definitely look into getting an Otterbox case.

Vera Sweeney said...

I love my Otterbox case! That thing can stand up to anything. That's great for me. I have terminal case of Butter Fingers.

Meagan Goepferich said...

I've actually heard great things about the otterbox. I have definitely considered it.

Pam said...

A good phone case is really important, especially considering how expensive phones are these days. I actually have an Otterbox myself.

Liz Mays said...

I'd definitely want to keep my phone protected on trips away from home. Otterbox has some really cool styles to choose from!

Debra Rutt said...

My husband is notorious for dropping his phone. The first accessory he bought for his new iPhone was an Otterbox!

Wisconsin Mommy said...

I'll bet that is one cruise item that a lot of people don't even think about! I would be so bummed if something happened to my phone on vacation.

Masshole Mommy said...

Otterboxes are awesome. My husband and I each have one and I don't know what we would do without them.

ana de jesus said...

This is my first time hearing of otterbox but seeing as I am clumsy it sounds like the perfect venture for me. I really love the design too! x

AiringMyLaundry said...

I've heard these are fantastic! I should get one for my phone. I drop it a lot.

Theresa Mahoney said...

Otterbox is such a great brand. I always use Jason's when I need to protect my phone when we are at the beach or kayaking.

Claudia Krusch said...

I am so happy I bought a Otterbox for my last phone. It has definitely saved my phone on multiple occasions.

Muna Kenny said...

Never heard of this product before but sounds interesting, I guess I'll get one for my hubby, he drops his phone all the time :)

Parenting Patch said...

I am terrible about dropping my phone. I have an awesome OtterBox case that comes with a slide-out area for a couple of cards!

I ONLY use otterboxes for my families phones. They protect so well. I need to look for that polka dot design - so cute!

The first time the Otterbox came out in the market, I got one as soon as I could. I have the tendency to drop things and smartphones do not come cheap. I would purchase an Otterbox again if I get that Sony Xperia I've been dreaming of for the longest time. :)

Corinne & Kirsty said...

I had never heard of this company before. The product sounds quite cool. I would need a protection for my phone! xx corinne

Jocelyn @ Hip Mama's Place said...

I don't buy a case unless it's going to help protect my phone. I have always loved Otterbox, it's a great brand and it's totally worth getting!

Kelly Hutchinson said...

I think this is a great tip! I just got a new phone and I won't go anywhere without a protective case.

Eliz Frank said...

Boy, did I learn the hard way? A new Android that cost me hundreds of dollars was smashed when I slammed my car door on my jacket pocket. A protective case would have saved me money and tears.

Toni | Boulder Locavore said...

So cool! That is a must-have! I will grab one for my phone! :D

Kaitlin Ryan said...

We have used otterboxes for a long time. They are amazing. My husband and I are really hard on phones, and the otterbox has saved us a lot of money and broken phones.

alissa apel said...

We just got Mica his first phone, screen protector, and case. It's more than I wanted to spend, but the boy has to have a phone to stay at home, watch Isaak, and be on a bus for middle school.

AnnMarie John said...

My kids and I have always used OtterBox. They have so many adorable designs and colors! I just love that they keep our phones and gadgets safe in style!

katriza said...

This is something I would absolutely forget but totally necessary! Would hate to miss out on some photos if my phone gets ruined! I love Otterbox too! They offer such great protection and totally worth the price!

Laura said...

Never heard of it! Really need something so think this could be perfect!! My phone is my pride and Joy

redheadmomblog said...

I used to have an Otterbox for my iPhone and loved how much protection it gave my phone. Now I have a Mophie because I go through battery way too fast! Ha ha!

S. Graham said...

Amen to that! I left my phone in my room during my entire cruise because I was afraid I would mess it up!

Ophelia T said...

The pink case is so cute and it looks it can protect my iphone through almost anything. Thanks for sharing.

I need this! I have cracked my screen a couple of time and had to spend at least $100 to replace it! This is a must for me!

My Teen Guide said...

Otterbox is a phone's lifesaver! It saved me so much money because I keep on dropping my phone for some reason. Best phone protective case I ever had.

ohmummymia said...

First time hear about otterbox bout sounds like good quality product

Mary O said...

This is amazing as it's one of the best out there and like i tell some people, why bother spend so much on a phone if you don't plan giving it the best protection.

Jennifer L. said...

I love otterboxes! All my family and I have one and its been a lifesaver. I honestly couldnt imagine not having it.

Kiwi said...
