Default Cruise w/3 kids, room options?

My husband and I are thinking about taking our kids on a cruise. We've never been on one before and I have a very basic question about the room situation. We have three kids and all I've seen about the rooms is that they have double occupancy, so what do I do with the other kid? ... Is it possible to have three people in a room?

Yes, you can find cabins that hold the 3rd/4th person. With 5 a little more difficult, but check into the family suites or booking 2 cabins. What ships are you looking at?

Default RCI

I've been looking at the RCI 7 day Mexican Riviera cruise on the Mariner of the Sea. I'm worried that a 7 day might be too long for our first cruise. I'd love to go for Spring Break, but is that too soon? I don't even have our passports yet.

Actually, 7 days is a good time frame. The 3/4 day are just on the short side, especially if you are flying into the port.

You still have plenty of time to get passports, but I'd get going on it...

Most families would get a double room for the parent and a triple for the three kids. Put them in an inside room so it is cheaper and get yourself a balcony cabin. Many ships even have adjoining rooms (but generally not balcony to inside - that is harder to find). But you can get a balcony cabin with an inside cabin across the hall easily.
