Well said Donnajo. Orlanda really does'nt want to take the kids or she would. Like others here I have seen iqnorant parents pushing babies in strollers in extremely hot climates and exposing them to environments/travel not good for them. They all have the same ole tired excuses and if you have an opposing view they all resort back to the the "old coot" thing. By all means take kids on cruise if you want....but at least wait till they are old enough to enjoy it.
