A group of 30 are traveling in April on the HAL Zuiderdam. Many children, including 3 infants. I have several questions, as this will be my first cruise. I will be traveling with 3 children (10, 7, 1). We have a Deluxe Veranda Suite.
First question is regarding my stroller. I'm not sure which one to bring. I have a VERY comfortable jogging stroller. She enjoys napping in it and I think it will be good on sand etc. However, it is not the easiest to fold (getting in and out of taxis, etc). Any suggestions? Should I just bring the umbrella for ease, not comfort? Has anyone used the babysitting services on board? Has anyone had the deluxe suite, were you pleased with the size (I'll have 3 kids in it). Any and all suggestions regarding the baby and kids would be appreciated.

KBF,

I might not be able to answer your qwestions turoughly but I will do the best I can. The stroller is up to you. Only you know what you can handle. The excursions you take are also a factor to consider. If it is more comfortable for you than i would take it, but it is ysolutlyour decision. As for the services for babysitting, they will have a blast. Now the room. It is important to have space, exspecialy when unpacking and changing. It is most likley roomy enough.

hope i helped, enjoy your cruise!

When my son was one we took him on a cruise and we just brought the stroller with a tray and sun shade. I dragged it along the sand backwards it worked for me!!
