Guy, not to worry about your typing/spelling...some call my way of typing Triponese
Traveling with your kids is a great way to experience cruising,and yes you can get adjoing cabins...I would say book early to make sure they are available on the cruise you select.

Depending on the ship, in the main dining room, tables for 4 are offered,as well in the pay dining option venues.

I would, in my opinion, do not do a short cruise...the dynamic of a shorter cruise often makes them more of a party cruise,and by the time you get comfy on board, you are ready you leave the ship. 7 days is what most first timers choose, but 10 would be heaven Decide where you want to go,the itineraries are diverse, and getting the most pout of your port days, makes for an exciting cruise. Let us know what you decide...more questions??

WElcome LG,
I think the idea of a family cruise for a first cruise would be such fun for everyone. I would suggest doing some research and deciding on the places you want to visit. You only have a few options when cruising from the East coast, possibly look into flying or driving down to Fl? I also think, doing a 7 day cruise would be the best option for seeing more islands...What time of the year do you want to cruise?

Let us know if you have any questions or problems....

Thanks for the welcome . I checked on New Posts and see nearly all politics .It looks like more people post on that then cruising . Very strange .When you get to be as old as me you realize that discussing politics makes no sense because everyone has different opinions and most people will not change theirs .

I really expected cruisemates to be 100% cruise related . Can I ask why you have politics ?Did you used to have politics always ?This is not what I was told about this place .

Guy..one tip...Book with a cruise specialist, not directly with the cruise line....Pick their brain, for their expertise,and get matched with the correct ship for your wants and needs...another must is getting travle insurance..take it form me, it's priceless!

HI LG,
No, the politics board is fairly new. WE have always had a chit chat folder, where anything other than cruising is discussed.. Pretty much the rest of the boards are all about traveling/cruising.
