why would there be a problem? your children speak english and spanish.
when children are among themselves, language is not a problem.
Only grown-ups have problems with themselves when they don't understand
a language. I am from quebec. There is a french and english problem there.


happy cruising

I agree with the two above posters. There will not be a problem! You and your children will not have a problem communicating....in fact you may even get to use your Dutch on board the ship!

You will be surprised. The universal language is a smile. And most people are smiling on a nice cruise like that. Language will be a bonus, not a problem.
