It may sound silly but taking the cruise ship with the entire family is not entirely a bad idea. The three to four day trip could spell a disaster coming especially with children around, but some made it alive.
Checking-in in a cruise ship is just like in an airport where metal detectors are everywhere. Parents may want to advise their kids about men with guns and plenty of people in uniforms. The lines could be nasty and long so it is important to offer snacks, toys and other things that could be handy for the kids while waiting.
All cruise ships will give everyone an ID pass in which your credit card number will be surrendered to the ship. This ID will allow you to shop everything you bought inside the ship. Bear in mind that you may not want to consider having your children with your credit card number part on their ID pass. Try asking the cruise attendant if your children’s ID pass will invalidate any charging.
Rooms in cruise ships differ. For a family of four, it is great to have double bunks for your children. There are beds that can be folded and can instantly turn into a sofa. The toilet is just about the size of an airline with a stand up shower. The toilet will flush just like on the plane which is pressurized.
The food inside a cruise ship is cool with two different choices. First is the cafeteria style which is great for family. Anyone can eat what they want in big servings. Sit down style is cool where children have their own kid’s meal that contains Mac and cheese, hamburgers and fries. Unfortunately, there is usually no baby stuff on board for infants like mashed foods and warmed up bottle of milk. Junk foods can be seen in the entire ship where ice cream machines, hot dogs and pizza are everywhere.
Taking the entire cruise with the entire family is fun and exhilarating! There are many things to do inside a cruise ship and parents can leave their kids in a baby sitter.
