Personally, I see nothing wrong with it. As long as you're prepared to handle an emergency situation, why not?

Kids that age don't need much.

Yeah I saw that this morning! I''m glad they are all okay. They seemed like a very loving family and their boat was well kept (except for the fact that it failed to work right lol) but still, it's a little crazy and slightly selfish to take such a trip with such young children (esp a 1 year old) something like that, wouldn't they consider the dangers before adventuring off. And even if the boat didn't fail, what was their plan when the kids got sick. There's no way of avoiding problems like that with young kids and 1 year old is way too young. And even though him sure there intentions were good, it still was slightly selfish to put aside their childrens needs for the sake of a dream trip around the world

Must be nice to live your dream. 

Kids get sick.  It happens, and sometimes there is nothing you can do to forsee or prevent it. And better that they called in the distress call than to let the baby get sicker or die, depending on the severity of the infection.

Honestly I would wait until they were older so they could enjoy it more. I think it'd be fun though.
