With so many options, I did not know where to get started. Although I love to travel, by choice I had never been on a cruise. Being that I would be taking the kiddos, I decided that a cruise would be our best option. Next steps involved selecting a cruise line. There are so many options, especially for kids. Naturally, Disney sounded like the best option since I would be bringing the kids (see here).
Realizing Disney would not be the option for us right now, I narrowed down my choices between Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Princess, and Norwegian Cruise Lines. Each option seemed to have steller kids clubs and other amenities that will entice my wee ones. After much research, I determined Royal Caribbean to be the winner. They had a lot of kid friendly options on their ships that seemed like a good deal.
Speaking of deal, I got the best deal that I could get for the high season time that we are going. Being new to this cruise life, I had no idea that cruising was so expensive in the summer.
There is so much it takes to plan a vacation. Next on the list is accommodations.
