    I'm another who couldn't do a cruise.

    Twinklify - sounds frustrating for you. I hope your DS is over wanting his daddy.

    The CAT team have just left so I'm back to my own devices trying to work out what to do with myself. My harddrive on my preferred macbook died yesterday so I might do some online hunting to find a new one to install in it so I can use a decent computer again

    that's crappy about your hard drive! is the other MacBook useable or not really?

    ETA: what did the cat team say?

    DH got up about an hour ago. Ds has been stuck to him like glue the whole time haha. Its his turn. Its his own fault being hungover.

    I hope you have a successful hunt for a hard drive.

    If your going with a big group of friends it would be great as you just swim, drink, play games ( trivia, casino ect) and no one has to drive but I'm a foodie and was really disappointed with the food
    Thanks. We are all going with kids and from the sound of the 7 night one there is loads for kids with kids clubs and events. Hmmmm will need to look into it more. Thanks.

    I found the pool areas not kid friendly ( no slides or fountains, no shallow ends ) the kids club looked like a small crèche that you'd find in a gym, the staff were lovely and DS went to 2 sessions but they never left the room, he much prefers to swim or play putt putt etc so I felt slack leaving him in a room when there were other things for him to explore on the ship but being ours was only a 3 day cruise and not many kids maybe they make it more kid friendly on the longer trips? My 13 year old nieces loved their tween club but it was better for them being older they could come and go as they please whereas DS is 5 and his cousins 4 so they obviously needed supervision all the time

    Yeah perhaps. I've only looked at it quickly but seems they and you are given a pager to find them if needed as they go ice skating and around the ship. Swimming and pools is a thing I'd prefer too though, kids love them and makes them sleep well too. Ha

    Is everything - meals, drinks, activities - included in the cost? Or are they extra? I reckon a cruise could be fun, but DH would hate it I think. Might have to wait 25 years until he retires and I've worn him down LOL.

    For a family of 4 for 7nights it works out about $500 a day for room, all food, drinks on top (can get packages) and stops at 3 islands.
    Too cheap to turn down really. Flights to Fiji alone cost $3k last year.

    That's not bad. We're not huge drinkers - especially if it's a family trip! I reckon it would be fun for the kids.

    Ours included food only at certain restaurants ( buffett which was horrid and a main restaurant) and no drinks - the drinks seemed cheap $10 cocktails but they were all in U.S. Dollars , there was no decent coffee on board at all which nearly killed DH! Our drinks bill for 3 nights was $300 which seems like a lot but we really only had a few cocktails before dinner and a bottle of wine at dinner
