MeShell, a summer cruise to the Med sounds perfect. You'll have a great time. Jewel is a beautiful ship. And your daughters will have the time of their life, I can almost guarantee it! There should be lots of young people on your cruise, too, being the start of vacation season.
Myself and my daughters are American but we live in the UK with my UK husband....
My birthday is May the 26th..
I should say we are not cruising virgins as such. DH and I did a transatlantic from Southampton to Barbados back in Oct 2003 on Oceania. Which got us hooked on cruising. This is our first opportunity since then, and we can't wait!!!
Same with the boys. They will complain but deep down will enjoy and hopefully learn something. My parents will go along with anything so it is all up to me! It will be hard to make everyone happy.
I am in Chicago. Where are you?
We took the kids on the Sun a few years ago. We all had a great time.
