My family and I left yesterday for a seven day cruise to the Caribbean. While I am looking forward to this nice little vacation away, it was a little bit stressful to have to prepare for taking a baby on a cruise.
Babies have so much gear and so many necessities, that I wanted to make sure that I had everything I could possibly need. Just in case. A cruise is a unique situation, because unless it’s here with you on the ship, you really can’t get it anywhere else.
I am confident in the preparation that I did do and I’m sure that this cruise will be great and I will be able to enjoy my family.
Maybe even a little bit of alone time!
