Hi My friends name is Leah. This is their first cruise also! She is traveling with her husband and 2 boys (1yr and 5yrs). We wont be cruising on this ship. My family and I are cruising out of Miami on the 7th and visiting the exact same ports. Neither of us are concierge level so I'm afraid we won't be able to secure a cabana this time. Traveling with children in diapers...make sure you request a diaper genie from your stateroom attendant, they will bring you one. I also reserved bed rails for my toddler. They are very accommodating, so if you need anything, just ask. Have a great time!!!!!
