Default Two adults and four children

We would like to take a cruise with our four children around March 30-April 7 for spring break. We live in north florida and can go out of several ports including tampa, port canaveral, mobile, new orleans or basically anywhere in the northern gulf.

Do the ships have adjoining rooms or can we fit all of us in one room? Which lines work best for our size family?

Royal Caribbean ships have Family Stateroom that sleep 6. Our friends had one on the Radiance and it was very nice. It had a small room with bunkbeds and a privacy curtain, a sofa/bed and a queen bed area. The cabin was over 300 sq ft. If you look at some ship's deck plans you can find decks that have a balcony cabin with an adjoining oceanview cabin usually located forward. Then you would have 2 bathrooms, 2 TVs and privacy! Have fun planning.

At this point, you're looking to cruise in only two months with 6 people, which restricts your choices a bit. It's a popular time to cruise due to spring breaks so I think your best bet is to either see a travel agent specializing in cruises or check out CruiseCompete.com. You can plug in your dates and you'll get lots of travel agents emailing you back with the availability and rates. What works in your favor is that you don't have to get airfare and have port flexibility.

Smooth sailing,

we are going on our first cruise in April and we put 1 adult with 2 kids in each cabin-cabins are next to each other. This way we saved a little over booking a suite.
