    We are going in August! Right now we are booked on a 7 night Eastern on the Fantasy, though I might downgrade to a 4 night Dream if I get scared of the cost and the possible seasickness.

    Thanks for the head's up on the new pre-trippie! ;) Heading over there now!!!!

    Still wondering about child care, though. If the race starts at 10, and the kids are in childcare on the ship, it would be a big waste of time to drop them in childcare, go run, go get them, then go back to CC. But if childcare is open on CC, that makes it so much easier.

    Does anyone know whether childcare is available on CC during the 5K?

    I will be there too. I also haven't had much time to train and I am definitely not in shape. I will probably walk a good bit of it. I am using it to help me plan for the Expedition Everest Challenge next May.

    Are kids allowed to run? I'm seeing people post about their kids joining them. I thought they couldn't....please tell me I'm wrong! My 6.5 year old is a runner and has run several 5ks. He's heartbroken that he cannot join mom on the cc5k.

    Thanks for posting this. Not sure if I can run 5K but I'm planning to walk my first 5K on next cruise. :laughing:

    The Magic does. Actually the Magic gives it out for trivia winners.

    You do have to be over 12, but I saw a couple of kids who had to be like 7 or 8 running with their parents. They just couldn't sign up to run was what their mother told me.
