Before going back to work after my maternity leave we decided to take a cruise. We had been on several cruises in the past but always opted for the more economical cabin because really how much time do you spend in it? But travelling with a baby we knew we would need to be in our cabin more for nap times and bed time so we splurged and got a balcony. Best decision ever!
We were still able to have our daughter nap without feeling “stuck” in the cabin. We could grab some lunch and bring it to our room and eat it on the balcony while she slept. And in the evenings after she went to bed we were able to unwind on that balcony without feeling like we were missing out on too much. Surprisingly, that was one of our most relaxing trips.
