Default 10/12/03 Sun with 9 year old girl

We are a family group of 8 -- 3 sisters, 4 of our kids and 1 of our grandchildren.

Lizzie, a Jersey Girl, is 9 and we are pulling her out of school for this floating family reunion. We are SS Norway refugees -- and still traveling with part of the Norway SOS history crowd. That is how we ended up cruising during the school year -- an opportunity to learn history first hand.

My concern is will Liz have any other kids to hang out with? She is an only child and very accustomed to tagging along with the adults and very happy to see her cousins and grand-aunts from Michigan, Ohio and S. Dakota, but she does enjoy time with other kids. She does basketball, ballet and cheerleading and is reading Moby Dick and the latest Harry Potter. If you know of any other kids on this trip, she would be happy to hear about them.

I haven't been on a cruise in the past 5 years where there were not kids. Todays scheduling opens it up so much more. You have kids on fall break, kids who are home schooled, kids pulled out of school, etc. I hope she meets with other kids and has a great time. It's fun to tag along with adults, but also good for kids to be with other kids. Happy cruisin NMNita

Nancy,
If there are not very many people who write back on this thread, you might try posting a thread in the teen section asking if any of the teens have younger siblings who will be on the cruise or maybe post a thread for the family section. Also with year around school, there are probably a lot of kids out in the fall for breaks and Nita is right, so many kids are homeschooled and taken out of school for learning through life experiences.

Hi, Rhonda! My niece spotted your reply. Glad to hear your girls will be on board. Liz will be happy to meet them. They have a 9 -12 age group for Kid's Crew, so she and your girls will be together. This is her first cruise. At first she was a bit scared -- the Titantic was her idea of a cruise ship and what happens. I asked her what it hit and told her we were sailing form Miami and she figured out that icebergs are very rare in this area. She is very excited.

You might end up feeling lucky you switched from the Norway to the Sun!!!! Went on it last year...very new, bright, spacious...and freestyle with a group is w o n d e r f u l!!!!!! We upgraded to speciality restaurant one night and preferred the other dining rooms! The folks with knew with kids hardly caught up with them as the onship "campers" had activities early and late!!!!! You might consider taking school supplies to a school in Roatan if that is one of your stops....we consider it an humbling yet awesome experience.......Enjoy!

It appears there will be more kids than you thought. Many schools have 3 and 4 day Columbus breaks now so parents don't mind pulling the kids for an extra couple of days. We were on the Sun a year and 1/2 ago. Lots of kids and they all loved the kids program. One family we spent lots of time with could hardly get their 8 year son to do anything with them. He just wanted to hang out with his new friends. Sounds like you have nothing to worry about and the ship is wonderful.
