Thanks for the advice. As I was doing my home work about this cruise it got sold out! So now we are looking at the next one which will make the kids miss a few days of school...which believe it or not may shoot the whole trip (per them not me!) We plan on having a family meeting to decide but I'm am inclined to agree with you about keeping the cruises for just my husband and I. But its so tempting especially since they have extended the requirements for passports for another 2 years. The extra money on passports sure makes the cruise a less expensive option.
My Mom and sisters are thinking of an Alaskan cruise in Sept. We are worried about the weather being bad as it is close to the end of the season. Any advise?
