3 tips for kids excursion.

Since this is the first time you bring your kids for a cruise, here is a few tips that maybe useful for you. I got this tips from

1) Consider the ages of your children when researching shore excursions. Example: Alaska is growing in popularity for families, but for someone too young to appreciate the spectacular scenery, it's -- well -- no day at the beach.

2) In the case of young children who may need to stay onboard while you're in port, check to see whether the ship's children's program and/or group baby-sitting are available. Make sure the hours line up - a children's club that opens a half hour after the last shore excursion leaves the ship isn't going to do you any good. And even if baby-sitting is available, ask if it's guaranteed. Otherwise, by the time you're ready to book, there may not be anyone available.

3) Since most kids tend to graze all day long, ask if snacks and/or lunch are available on longer shore excursions. If not, consider tucking a single-service cereal box or fruit in your backpack to stave off temper tantrums later on. And, of course, bring plenty of sun screen, a hat or visor and even an extra sweater in case you need it as the sun dips over the horizon.
