Crusing with 3 year old twins - sleeping arrangements?
For those of you who traveled with toddlers, where do they sleep? Do you always get a suite? We haven't traveled with the kids yet, but would love cruising and I think the girls would love it. I think they'd be either 3 or 3.5 yr old when we go... I just can't see where they'd sleep in one of those regular size cabins. Do you get two cabins?
Actually most standard cabins can accomodate 2 adults and 2 small children very easily. The cabins will have either a sleeper sofa or bunk beds, when you look into the cabin descriptions it will tell you what the accomodations are in your cabin. If you want a larger cabin with more floor space, more living space and a bigger bathroom you could look into either a mini or junior suite, that would be all you would need.
When my kids were that young on a cruise, we'd take the upper berths (like bunk beds) and have them take the lower berths just ot make sure no one fell out of bed! They'll love the whole cruise experience esp. if they're potty trained -- then they can go in the youth programs. (Carnival and NCL are the only lines which allow non-potty trained kids in their youth programs.)
