Cruising With Toddlers

Blogger: Sweeter Side of Mommyhood, Ross

We were blessed with an invitation to accompany my husband’s mother’s side of the family on a week-long cruise to the Bahamas (the MAhamas as we now call them thanks to Lilly).

Planner that I am, I spent weeks reading forums and blog posts about cruising with babies.  I was looking for insider tips, advice, recommendations and warnings. Turned out to be a pretty big waste of time because *most* of the tips and advice shouted “DON’T TAKE BABIES ON CRUISES” in bold capital letters and I was panicking.

Guess what, nay sayers? We baby-cruisers had a BLAST.  That’s probably more of a nod to my sweet little girls than anything else (they were really beyond awesome) but I still find it my civic duty to share my own tips for cruising with babies and toddlers (and LOVING it).
