Cruising with a 2 Year Old

 Cruising with a 2 year old
Oh boy. We’ve been back from vacation for over a month, and I’ve had the post written, but haven’t had the time to sort through the 500-million+ photos we took. I’ve finally finished and am happy to share with you today!  All I can say is when cruising with a 2 year old… Expect the unexpected. Two year olds can be very unpredictable and let’s face it–if you breath wrong they meltdown. I both love and hate this age. Hate the meltdowns but love watching their little minds work, figure out stuff, and imagine. I knew we would face quite a few challenges and new experiences this go around while cruising. The last time we cruised, our son, still wasn’t walking yet. In case your new to the blog check out the following cruising related post: Cruising with a 6 month old, Cruising with a 1 year old, and Cruise Packing List for Babies & Toddlers.
Fast forward to present day and we have a rough, tough, running, skipping, climbing active boy. We choose to cruise with Carnival Cruise Line this go around. We choose this cruise line for a few reasons:
  1. Ages 2 and up can go in the kids club for FREE! *and they don’t have to be potty trained!
  2. We have platinum status on Carnival giving us access to a wide variety of amenities including free laundry!

Carnival Conquest Cruise Ship

We have genuinely loved Carnival in the past and we really wanted to cruise this line with our son again. This go-around we opted for a 7 day cruise. Our last two cruises were both 4 day cruises. We know we would be taking a gamble but since we decided to cruise in June during “high season” we were gonna spend a lot of money either way–might as well spend the extra little bit and take a week long vacation.
