  • Just found this site from Life as Mom. What a great resource. Thanks for doing this! We took our first cruise as a family of 5 the summer of 2009. With our then two-year old, it was quite challenging, but we had a good time. Our older two loved it. We’re looking to go on another one, but like you, it’s hard to find one with cabin that fits 5. We might do Carnival Fascination out of Jacksonville sometime in the near future. Look forward to reading this blog!

    • Thanks so much for commenting, Michele! Definitely look into the Norwegian Sun as it has a lot of cabins (even interior ones) that hold 5. Some fall deals of the Sun are listed on this post. Yes, it seems like the only economical options for a family of 5 are the NCL Sun and several of the Carnival ships.
