I'm trying to convince my husband for us to do a family cruise with our 3 kids. Yes I will admit my kids are not perfect, my youngest can be a little devil and loves to climb and explore.

This may sound extreme but my husband has crazy nightmares about our kids safety on board the ship and often dreams about our youngest climbing the rails and falling overboard. How extreme is this or, should I ask, how likely is something like this to happen? Please don't judge and say something silly like "Well if you would just watch your kid or learn to control him....blah, blah" TRUST ME... we are doing the best we can and quite honestly, the best of kids get curious and it only takes a split second for them to get into trouble...

Trying not to be paranoid,
Cyd

cyd, my son is 12 and I still worry.

I'd suggest that you choose a cabin without a private balcony. While the balcony doors are pretty heavy and even I find them hard to open at times, it may put your minds at ease if you select a larger oceanview cabin. You can all enjoy the outdoor decks together, with youngest child's hand in yours.

Which ships are you considering? And, how old are your kids? Many ships today have kids programs with lots of activities and safe places to exlore for the young ones.

We are cruising with our 2 1/2 and 11 year old on 01/21/07. We are in an Oceanview, not a balcony room. We chose to do this because I didn't want to worry about the little one on the balcony.
I am a little concerned but we will have alot of eyes peeled to the little one and her quick ways. It should be fine. Just watch them closely as much as you can. If your children are 3 or older there are many onboard programs for the kids.
