Greetings! So my hubby and I have been to the Western Carib before. This time we are traveling with our boys (21 &13) in January. We are thinking we will do the Southern route for a week on Princess. But really...is this the best one for a family? And during this time of year? Any opinions? Thoughts? Thanks for your help!
I enjoy a Southern itinerary, but whichever you choose it will be what you make it. Get the boys involved in planning activities, maybe even selecting the cruise within your parameters.
All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield

We would normally include the kids for input but this time it is all a surprise. We gave the oldest the dates so that he could take off of work and we renewed the passports. But otherwise they will open their Christmas gifts to find out where we are going. Southern was out preference for sure and the one we put the deposit on but then I started questioning if it was a good one for families...thus the reason for the post and for input. But it looks like our ABC cruise is everyone's favorite so it should be ours also
