We dreaded our first cruise. It was "earned" as a sales incentive through my husband's business. What in the world were we going to do for a WEEK? We are officially addicted. All travel is stressful with small children. This is travel with a fixed base for you, endless possibilities for food, staff that will bend over backwards to meet your needs (if you meet someone who doesn't, ask someone else--staff that isn't helpful or overly helpful are in the minority)--it may turn out to be one of the least stressful things you could choose to do with kids. (think Chevy Chase's ill-fated car trip to Wally World--there are a lot more difficult options for family fun.) My kids have always been along for the cruise (Although my youngest had her best voyage in-utero) and we wouldn't trade it for anything.
