The Graco Duo is the perfect double stroller for cruising. Sturdy enough, good shades and recline and narrow enough to wind your way along on board. Ours went on many cruises. The only time it...

I completely get it - one of my girls lives for playgrounds so I always know where the closest is when we travel. It's also a nice way for them to play with local kids. Google maps are pretty...

As long as it's tandem (front/back rather than side-by-side), it will be no problem at all (except possibly having to fold it to get it through the cabin door). Have a great time!

Best,

Carnival was always great with my special needs child when she was younger. Definitely arrange for an alternate lifeboat drill ahead of time through the special needs department. The kids club will...

Throwaway bibs and placemats. I liked the toys that have plastic links to clip to the high chair so you don't have to keep diving under the table for toys. Any meds you might need and a...

I agree that any ship with an itinerary you like will be fine with the kids, since you will mostly be using the ship as a floating hotel/restaurant and not have time to use the bells/whistles after...

I did that cruise with my twins when they were four and it was one of our all-time favorites. So relaxing. You can find all the information you need on the ports of call boards here. We had some...

I took my 5 year old twins on an Eastern Med (with different ports: Cairo, Izmir, Athens, Barcelona, Rome). By arranging our own tours, it's easy to have an amazing time in port with kids since...

Oh no - no ship does. It's not a facility that does any kind of billing - they're just there to take care of the passengers and crew, so the charges are added to your account like everything else on...

I also had one of my twins get an ear infection while on a cruise (Princess). She was so well-cared for, we wished we could have the doctor as our regular pediatrician - he was wonderful. The...

Just confirm that it's a real certified copy of the birth certificate - not the souvenir one the hospital gives. Otherwise it sounds like you have it covered as long as the parent names on the...

We loved the Radiance and Hubbard Glacier. It's been some time since I visited Glacier Bay, so I can't compare the two, but the ports are all so great for kids, I wouldn't count out a cruise that...

We did an Eastern Med cruise (Barcelona, Rome, Athens, Izmir, Cairo) after Christmas some years back and the weather was perfect for sightseeing. I'd actually much rather be there when it's cooler...

You might want to check out You Need a Budget. It's changed my life financially. I find for our family, if we have a goal of a big trip, it's actually fine if it's two years away - the anticipation...

I'd suggest borrowing or buying a 2nd hand tandem if at all possible. Otherwise, the two singles, but if you're using them in port, you want good sun shades. The only problem with two singles is...

We have always aged my daughter down a group, which is where she belongs. Since she is then much bigger than the others, the counselors have framed it as my daughter "helping" which she loves and...

Loved the MacLaren when my girls were little and took it all over the world. Sturdy enough for cobblestone streets, but light and easy to fold, throw on my shoulder with the carry strap to take up...

I've checked diaper boxes with luggage tags, storage bins, cardboard boxes, bouncy chairs with luggage tags stuck to them and never had an issue. You do want to bring plenty in your carry-on as well...

Completely respect your opinion (and you sound like a dream of a grandma), but keep in mind that at home there is no one coming in to straighten up twice a day, no one delivering coffee in bed every...

I found that one of the most important places to have a stroller was the first day with crowds and long waits. It's nice to have a place to put your kids while you deal with paperwork, juggle hand...

Princess has a great kids program, but no services for under-3s.

We had a great experience on the Radiance in Alaska with 2 and 8 year olds. They have a nursery and a great kids' program.

Lots of us have cruised successfully with toddlers. NCL can be a good choice because of the flexibility of dining times/places. You'll have a table of your own and can ask the waiters to keep the...

Hi Sandie - your auto-correct messed up. I think you meant to say, "Is there a reason you can't walk all the way back to your cabin to change the diaper? Perhaps there is a better alternative, my...

I think Alaska is the best itinerary with kids since it's all about exploring and nature. If your group is all over 3 and potty trained, then I'd really choose any of the major lines based on...
