Hi everyone! This is my first time here, and my first cruise! I have a little ways to go for my cruise, but i was hoping everyone could help me. We will be traveling with a large party (10 or so) My 2 small children (2 and 5 when we go) will accompany us. We will be traveling on the Destiny ( that's what my mom said shes hoping to get) Any and all advice, tips, warnings....whatever, lay them on me!! I am CLUELESS!!!
Glad you found us and we are ready to help you. Camp Carnival is a good place to start your research...go onlone and see if thiis something you would like to participate in...Yes or not, your kids will have a ball onboard.
Figure out if you want early or late dinner, and plan around this for happy kids in the dining room..BTW, I have never experienced cranky kids in the DR any of my cruises.
Once the ship and itinerary havwe been decided upon, google the islands to get the lay of the land. Check your excursion options, and start dreaming....Once you get booked and you know where you are going we will throw tons more info at you:):):) yayayayaya for you!
Trip, with her book & tea!

I was on Destiny for my first cruise. I absolutely loved it. Ask away about the ship. The destinations have changed somewhat..
Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.
