Norwegian Cruising with Kids!

We LOVE to cruise! Cruise ships have fun for the entire family and we love that each day you wake up there is a new place to explore!

We vacationed on the Norwegian Dawn out of Tampa, FL and even flew down a couple days early to visit Disney before getting on the ship!

Waiting to get on the ship!

There is a bit of a wait time from when you arrive at the port until when you are allowed to board the ship but they do a good job moving the line along! I packed backpacks with snacks and activities for the wait!

Here we go!

This was the first cruise for the girls and they could not believe the size of the cruise ship!

Our Room!

Cruise rooms are typically small but there is a lot of storage options and the girls and I had plenty of space for the three of us!

So many pools!
Food everywhere!

My nieces were on the cruise with us and all the girls LOVED the kids club and all the pools to choose from! They also thought it was so fun to pick out their food at the buffets and that we could have ice cream and any time of day!

We had such and amazing vacation! Please check out my other videos from our days in Belize, Mexico and Roatan!


  1. Oh my goodness, so fun! My husband and I love cruises. I sailed with NCL when I was younger and loved it. I’ve done a similar itinerary and loved it πŸ™‚ Roatan and Belize are some of my favorite spots.

    1. We loved NCL and Roatan was our favorite stop! We visited Little French Key and had such a great time! Thank you for reading!!

  2. How fun! We took our girls on a Disney cruise and now all they want to do is go on cruises. I will have to check out a Norwegian cruise.

    1. I would LOVE to do a Disney cruise, that is next on our list! Thank you for reading!!

  3. I’d be open to the idea of a cruise, but sometimes the thought of being stuck on a boat with the guys in my family scares me!

      Hahaha it is a big ship!! We did a family trip with 15 of us and there was plenty of room to do your own thing too and you get off the boat most days with a new island to explore. We loved it!! Thank you for reading!

  4. I just took a cruise that stopped in Cozumel! It was amazing!

      We loved Cozumel too!! So fun!! Thank you for reading πŸ™‚

  5. Love cruising! We lived in Florida and used to cruise all the time. I totally miss the convenience of being close to the ports, but it’s worth the journey with a great itinerary.

      That must have been great to live so close to port!! I am from New England and have to travel to port but it is so worth it!!

  6. Oh what fun! I have been on several cruises, but not a Disney cruise. I will definitely have to check this out.

  15. I’ve never been on a cruise, but have always wondered how big the rooms are! Hope it was a great way to see a slice of Central America!

    1. admin

      Rooms are small!!! I upgrade to a window room so I can see out lol but would love to upgrade to a balcony room on the next cruise. You are so busy with all the fun things to do on the ship that you don’t spend much time in your room!
