    Fiji! We recently stayed at the Radisson Blu with a 9mo and 3.5yo. We went with friends and all the kids went to kids club twice (3hr afternoon session) - we hired a nanny for the kids that were under 4 but they all stayed together and did the kids club activities together.

    The rooms are a good size, get the 1br apartment - then you can put the kids to bed and close that area off. The pools are great, lots of shade sails and there's a waterslide! Plenty of activities and other resorts to visit for different restaurants etc.

    Yep Fiji!!! We went to Outrigger last year with a 2yo and 13mo. Best holiday ever. The nannies are amazing.

    We're going back in 6 weeks!!!

    Depends where you stay but around 5k with flights, hotel should be enough this would include food.

    As for OP I would do Fiji over a cruise.

    I don't know many people that went on a cruise but all of those got gastro while on the trip.

    That's enough of a deterrent for me to never ever go on a cruise 😱

    Fiji. My sister is a travel agent and we asked her the exact same question! We are off to Fiji in October with a 7 year old, a 10 month old and my niece who is 2. Staying at Radisson Blu - can't wait!

    Eta: we are paying just over $4000 for 10 nights, flights, meals and private transfers 😊

    We spent just over $4k on flights (from Sydney), transfers, and accommodation in a 1br apartment (not studio) for a family of 4. It also included some extras like one free kids club session per day for kids 4 and over. We probably spent about $1k while we were there on food, massages, cocktails etc.
