Life'sabeach, I'm glad to see you have a sense of humour!
And while we're on the subject of cruising without kids, that is the reason I cruise, to get away from the kids I work with (pre-schoolers in daycare).
My own kids never cruised until they were almost adults, so I can say they were never brats on a cruise.
Yes, I said brats. Generally, I'm pretty tolerant of kids anywhere, and actually enjoy them. But it's the parents who don't supervise them or discipline them who need the wakeup call!
May I also say you have 2 beautiful children, and I absolutely love your daughter's dress! Once you get to know me, you'll realize I am the QUEEN of PURPLE!!
