Thinking of doing a family cruise out of Galveston in 2009. My daughter and son in-law have 3 children who will be ages 8, 5, and 3. Any suggestions on suitable cabins with a budget-minded approach? 8)
The cheapest would be a 1A and a inside cabin across the hall if you can find one. Some 1As have port holes on Conquest. They only hold 2 people, so the other cabin will have to hold 3 at least as far as booking.
Or find two inside cabins adjoining. You might not want to put two of the children in a 1A. You could book an adult in each cabin and switch when you got on board, but the 1As, have a twin and a sleeper sofa, so the adults wouldnt want to be in this cabin.
No cabins hold 5 on the Conquest, so no matter what you will need 2 cabins.
Don't forget to ask your TA or PVP...a good one will give you the best options and the price for each.
I was thinking you in one cabin and your daughter in another cabin. If so, an idea may be two adjoining inside cabins with one of the kids listed in your room. Where everyone sleeps can be worked out once you're onboard but having the two cabins adjoining can help with sharing bathrooms and closet space.
Life's a Beach ... enjoy it on a Cruise!
Royal Caribbean has a family suite the might work for you but as last posted 2 cabins with at least one adult in each cabin will work too. you can call Carnival directly, the family suite was not listed online, but the RC vacation planner i talked too told me about it.
