  • Depends on the cruise. One that is geared toward children may be ok.

  • Yea, depends on which line your taking. Some (like Royal Carribean) have Ocean Adventure for the little ones to stay at while the mommy and daddys get to go do their own thing. Last time I went on one was when my DD was 7 months old. We had a blast with her their. She of course didnt go to any programs, she stayed with me the whole time. Well actually, my parents where on the cruise also, so they took our DD if we wanted to go dancing or to a show or something. So if your not comfortable with leaving your child with the program, you could also take along a friend or family member to "help".

  • No. I think 3 is too young. Maybe 5 or 6 would be a better age.

  • Yeah, Disney cruises are suited for all ages of kids. They have special activities for every age and even have a daycare.

  • I would say as long as the cruise has activities for children. If you are going on one geared toward adults only, your 3 year old will be bored and that will be super bad for you.

  • I'd think a Disney cruise would be okay...they're geared towards kids (AND giving the mom & dad a break!)
