    Default 2 kids what holiday?

    We want a relaxing holiday next year, cocktail by / in pool, possible massage/spa treatments and fun with the kids etc
    Would you :
    A) go to say to a fiji resort with a 2.5 year old and 8 month old
    Or
    B) go on a cruise with a 1 year old and 3 year old?

    Def Fiji and get a nanny. At least the nanny can look after your bubba and the older one can join in the kids club with the nanny supervision.
    A lot of cruises don't let kids under 3 in the kids club and don't provide a nanny service. I think there was one liner that had kids club for over 2.

    I love cruises but I wouldnt do one with a 1yr old and a 3 yr old.

    Kids clubs usually only go from 3+ and need to be toilet trained ... and the cabins are really, really small so when you have day sleeps and little ones it isnt the greatest.

    So in this case - definitely Fiji

    I would pick a cruise. We went with Royal Caribbean, they have kids club from baby onwards if you plan to use it. We only used it twice, way to much stuff to do on the boat with the kids.

    Hi OP, if you want to have a little bit of 'kiddy free time' then you'll need to look at the age requirements for kids clubs or availabilities of Nannies. We had looked at cruises but most kids clubs were from 3 up. We chose Paradise Resort, Gold Coast, when our 2 youngest were 1 and 2. There was heaps to do with them, and they enjoyed one session of kids club per day and we enjoyed a meal/ walk/ shopping. We are going again soon with 8, 7 and 2 yr old. We will wait til 2 yr old turns 3 to go to Fiji.

    Pretty sure most kids' clubs only take kids from 2 and cruise play zones do as well.
