2. Realize that different people get enjoyment from different things. Some people seem to live for looking down their noses at people. Some people seem to think that you are on their cruise and must put their wants and desires first. Avoid these people.

3. Let the kids know that this is a Family vacation, not a "kids get what they want whenever they want it" cruise.

4. Convince your wife that you do not need to stand in every picture/character meet line you see. This is good way to lose many hours of your vacation.
Better yet offer to take your wife's picture! I don't seem to be on the vacations I take. It always looks like it my husband and kids' vacation.

hope this isn't a stupid question, but how would you know if you wouldn't be allowed to take perishable foods ashore?

It's usually printed in the Navigator. And there'll be signs on the way off the ship saying you you can't.

I'll keep my eye out for that on shore days.

We have been on Magic & Fantasy and have had a fridge in the room each time. On the Fantasy it was so cold even got some ice forming in the bottled water! They are quite small but perfect for a carton of milk plus a couple of beers and waters.
