If you are wondering we went on a six day Carnival cruise to Jamaica, Gran Cayman, and Cozumel. This post isn’t sponsored or anything by then but thought I would share some of the things that made my trip so fun.

Another thing to know is a lot of cruises have accommodations for kids. If you want to cruise with
kids be sure to check this out. On the cruise I just went on there was a childcare service called Camp Ocean for the children that was amazing. We did a bunch with the kids, but we also dropped them off and went to shows on the cruise ship or went and got dessert. So if you’re going to cruise with kids use the child care and don’t feel bad about it.
Look also for cruise lines with child friendly activities. The cruise ship we were on had mini gold and a kiddie splash pad. Also there are a ton of on shore excursions that are kid friendly. I’m Jamaica were went to a private beach and played in the water. When we were in the Cayman Islands we went to a giant turtle farm. They let the kids hold baby turtles. And my eight and five year old even learned to snorkel. In Mexico we toured Mayan Ruins which the kids loved and then went to them most amazing beach I’ve ever been on. We were able to find excursions that were fun for everyone.
Something that I can’t stress enough that made our vacation so smooth was tons of prep. I brought FIVE boxes of granola bars, tons of snacks, and new toys for the whole trip. I kept the kids fed and didn’t rush them. I also tried to do activities they were wanting to do and were excited about. We took time to nap and rest and had the best time.
I really loved going on this cruise with my kiddos. And we had a blast with them. Comment below with any tips or anything you’d like to add. Peace, love, and chicken grease.
