Default best rates

I'm a single Dad of a 13 year old girl and a 14 year old boy. Their Mother is in the hospital on a ventilator, we are hoping for a recovery. But the Doctors are not to sure about anything. I want to take the children on a cruise this summer, I want to know what my best rate is on a single parent income..Please help..This is only to help get the kids mind off of what's going on.

summer time the rates are going to be at there highest no matter which line you go on. So the best thing to do is get the lowest inside cabin to hold all of you. and go with it. But In my opion Carnival will have the best rates.

Carnival also has a good kid's program. Where do you want to leave from? That might help you narrow it down.

I would try Carnival too with an inside cabin. They will have the best deals.

It's always cheaper if you can drive to the ports. If you are only trying to get the kid's mind off their troubles, then any ship will do that. But I would echo what the others have said and suggest Carnival or Royal Caribbean for their kid's activities and many options.
