DH's family are very generous and it's an international holiday on a cruise, so it's set times and not possible to only go for a couple of days.
DH is a really great guy but I think he is hurt that I'm not excited about what his family has offered. His comment about taking bub and I didn't have to go, was just to get a reaction out of me, which worked!! He knows it's not even a possibility and I also agree he has no clue (neither do I) what it's like to have a young baby on holiday or away from me especially as I plan to breast feed!

Stand your ground, just say that you want to spend your first Christmas with bub at home!

I don't see that offer as generous. I see it as controlling and inconsiderate! !hey have not considered you or the fact you will be a new mum...or that they are totally excluding your family.
I would say in return that if they plan a more suitable holiday you would go for 5 nights....but expecting you to take a 6 month old on a cruise is just rude imo

I'm feeling anger for you! I understand that your dh was only after a reaction but to say he would take a 6mo away from the mum for 2 weeks would have me smacking him with a frypan. Not acceptable. As for a 2 week cruise with a 6mo over Christmas? Maybe the grandparents haven't though it through from your or bubs perspective. A holiday house for a week where you get your own space and you can do your own thing would be ok but a 2 week cruise is just silly
