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?
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.
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.
I am the editor, but I also speculate, ask questions and play devil's advocate. I reserve the right to change my mind.
