Totally disagree withe the poster who says to cancel your trip! What are you supposed to do? Sit at home until your kids turn 18 and move out?
It will be fun, what a wonderful family experience.
Though we haven't traveled with 3 we have gone with babies and toddlers, it was great. Not the same as travelling without, but great nonetheless.
The one and only thing we found difficult was getting through dinners in the main dining room. We ended up taking turns, some of us would eat in the main dining room, while the others would go to the buffet with our child. If that ship has any time dining, you could go at different times a few nights so that everyone gets a chance to have a full (uninterrupted) meal.
Some suggestions(some have been mentioned):
-box up diapers, wipes, baby foods, etc...
-I second the idea to get cheap umbrella strollers in France, since you have help can you do with 3 strollers?
- I haven't been on that ship, but many have a couch that can be turned facing the wall for a young child to sleep. If that doesn't work a lot of people will put pillows on the floor or do the pool-noodle trick. This way you aren't stepping over 3 cribs which probably won't even fit.
Have a great time, let us know how it goes!
