Hi Everyone! It's been a while since I have posted. A lot has changed since our last RC cruise! We had TWINS! They just turned one and we are ready to book a cruise as a family of 4. We are looking at Oasis of the Seas to Port Canaveral and Bahamas. Our main concern prior to booking is transportation from the port into town. Last time we cruised to Port Canaveral we just Uber'd to cocoa beach and went for lunch and drinks, planning on the same this time around. And Atlantis at Nassau. How to get around with infants? Without bringing two car seats. Does anyone have experience with ubers and car seats? (I may be a little spoiled, but when we went to Disney, the "Minnie Vans" [Lyft] always carried 2 graco 4ever seats for usage). What do parents with little ones do? This is the one detail holding us up. We could certainly manage to do without leaving the port at port Canaveral, since it's not all that important to us. But we really want to spend the day at Atlantis with the kiddies. Any advice is helpful! Thank you!
First post! Planning to surprise my two children with a cruise next June during my son's *slim* window of opportunity to take a vacation. They will be 17 and 10 at the time. Traveling as a single mom with them, I'm wanting to have as much assistance as possible, so wanted to do a Suite in order to have priority boarding and luggage assistance, plus concierge service. They both wanted to visit PR or Jamaica, so thought Freedom of the Seas from San Juan would be perfect! Also saw this is a good ship for 'first-timers' since it's not as large as the Quantum Class (although we're not technically 1st time cruisers, only have done Disney but I think they've outgrown that and Disney ships are very limited in activities after you've done them so many times!) Is this a good choice or is the ship too small compared to Harmony, to find activities? Is the up price for Suite worth it or should I just do a JS (because we WILL need the extra room for sure!) Any advice greatly appreciated!
