Are there any sitters on board..we need someone to keep a eye over our 8 year old for a couple hours everyday? We will soon be on the sensation. He hate Camp Carnival, thinks he is being punished in a day care..Thanks for your help.
You are nice. I would tell my child to suck it up and make the best of it. Most 8 year olds don't get to go on cruises. Either that or I would tell him he could stay with whichever relative he dislikes the most.
And yes my daughter gets very frustrated with me sometimes. lol
Yes, make sure he understands that he doesn't have to go all day. In fact my girls came and went (you can set it up so you have to sign him in or out OR he can come and go as he chooses (although at 8 years old I don't know if that is an option...)
Bring a set of walkie talkies with you and he can "call" you when he wants to leave the camp.
That worked out well for us.

What a line, i must say i do agree, at 8 which my daughter was when we went , she was fine and took part in all the things we did , as it was a family vacation , she went to Kids camp for a hour or two when there was activities she wanted to do, so guess you all have to make the best of it
I love the idea of walkie talkies..that is great.But I kind of think we as parents need to "suck it up"not so much the kids... as someone said. There really aren't many places he can't go...(casino.).we aren't drinkers so we don't care about the bar.The kids just think family vacations mean just that..our family together. Thanks for opening up my eyes to what is really important on a family vacation.HE IS!
