I dont think thats too early.
The only issue I see is that you would be caring for an infant the entire time and might not be able to enjoy yourself as much. Kwim?

I took my dd at 15m and we had fun but we also had others there to watch her so we could enjoy ourselves.
I get motion sickness so I was worried about that so I saw her Dr about it.

Also check with cruise lines some of them have rules. Child care for some starts at 2yrs. Imo with out someone to help you with ur child you will not be doing anything but holding your baby the whole time and seeing the water around you. Cruises r not for very young children. I would honestly say not till 7 or 8 years old. I've been on about 9 cruises.

It's for my mom's 60th b-day. And she wants to take care of my daughter while my dh and I go out. I know it sounds crazy, but that's what she wants! Lol Also, I won't let he be in day care.

I know many ppl that do it and still have fun. Kids that age will be happy regardless of where they are. Id say go esp if u have family help.

Go! Vacations are fun at any age.
We took my first born on vacation, cross country to visit my relatives at ten DAYS old. My third went to Disney at six weeks.
We travel a lot and having a baby has never slowed us down.
Go have fun, take it easy, relax!
