Just saw a really great FE gift idea that would be a great educational idea for on the cruise - nautical flags. We haven't cruised yet (Fantasy Jan 2014) but the OP said there are lots of nautical flags on board and the kids can decipher the messages by using the nautical flag alphabet. Could be fun.

On the Wonder, the passageway on the port side between the kids club and the Buena Vista Theatre had separate pictures of the Nautical flags with a cute picture and a description.

I'll post a picture tomorrow (I took pictures of each one). Sorry, can't get at it tonight.

My daughter is in Kinder and she will miss 8 days of school. Her major focus in school is writing and reading. I have printer about 15 different journal pages for her to work on during our trip. This will also make a fun suvioneers.

Love this thread! Is there a tour of the ship you can take? My kids love learning about different modes of transportation. It would be cool to learn about how ships are made, what parts are used for what purpose, how the captain navigates, etc.

Our cruise isn't until October so my girls will be in 1st and 2nd. But one thing I have planned is to make a book about all of the marine life we see. I've got disposable underwater cameras for each of them and I have my own underwater camera (not disposable). So when we get back we will make little books with all of the info we can find about each fish/plant/coral etc. I plan to also include my preschooler in it too (he just won't be able to write sentences like the girls).

I can't wait until we can do a European cruise, though. Now THAT will be a learning experience for everyone!

These are great ideas! We homeschool and are going on our first DCL cruise in 3 weeks. We've already studied about pirates and Walt Disney (totally fascinating life). We're going to do a dolphin encounter in GC and stingrays in Cozumel so are reading about both and just started a unit study on sailing ships. We planned on doing some astronomy onboard and now will include a world map to map out the CMs' native countries. May also ask them to teach us a few words in their native language. Will also have my girls do scrapbooks and journals of the trip....and I'm going to make ones for them too!
