Even though she'd be getting room and board they don't work for free. That would add up to more than $4K easily. Just wanted to point that out because its been mentioned a couple of times. As a single parent this is actually something I've thought of. I'd definitey do it if there was no airfare and the cabin rate was pretty cheap though.
I took the other posts are more of a babysitter e.g. family member or friend that would go on the cruise for room and board and help out, rather than a professional nanny. But you are right to point out that the job of a full time nanny is serious and would involve an investment of more than 4K.

I am not a single parent but I have thought of sailing alone with my daughter. My husband is in the Army and he is away a lot. Out of the past 5 years he's probably been away about 3 years total, including a 12 month deployment to Afghanistan.

Good to know. We would just decline and find something else to do.
