I feel like the first day is always the hardest. Now having 3 cruises with a baby/toddler under my belt I’ve learned to roll with the punches and throw all expectations out the window. Our first day was just as rough as I imagined it was gonna be. We left 2 hours later than planned which threw everything off. At the end of the day, my husband, Jon, realized how important it is to stay on schedule. My original goal was to get to the port just before lunch time, giving us enough time to check in with minimal lines, get on the ship to eat lunch, and then get Ryder down for a nap. Instead we stopped at a rest stop at 11:30 for lunch in hopes he would nap during the last hour and a half drive. Nope. Never happened. Nor did a nap at all that day resulting in a lot of tantrums and meltdowns.
