I just read a blog post at 2 Wired 2 Tired Travels about a cruise she went on. Over the years, I've read about many cruise adventures from various bloggers, but I've always nodded my head, thought, 'that might be nice,' and moved on. In the last year or so, I've become really, really interested in the idea of a family cruise, and now the idea is peaking.
A lot of you know we usually travel to Europe once a year for our big family vacation (something we love, Love, LOVE). There have been times we have saved here and there all year long to plan out the exact trip we want. Next year, however (we've already paid for our upcoming trip this year), I'm considering two things instead:
A). A cruise in Europe (not sure I'd like this as much as a land trip though, because it's so nice to just be there that I might not want to spend a good part of the trip on the water), but if you've done this I could maybe be persuaded...I dunno. Please...post away on your experiences with such a cruise, I'd love to hear about it. I bet a lot of us would!
B). Skipping Europe all together (gasp...I can't believe I said it), and do a cruise (the price would probably be about the same...I think? Maybe a cruise would be more? I've heard they can get pretty pricey).

And what about Disney...has anyone been on a Disney Cruise?
And on any cruise, do you have to pay for all of the great activities on board, or are they inclusive?
Any ideas, thoughts, experiences, opinions welcome. I'm just in the fishing stage on this one, but the reality of a family cruise might not be so far off after all (I bet the kids would love it!).
Totally looking forward to your thoughts and ideas.
