1st Big Trip with 6yo Daughter

Jump to last reply

I'm an adventurous traveler but this will be the first time venturing so far (we've been to Canada) with my daughter, by myself. I thought traveling via cruise was a great way to get her acclimated to traveling to foreign countries, and myself some practice in traveling alone with a child to faraway locations.
With that in mind, I also want to have a good time, it IS a vacation after all. So, I'm looking forward to exposing my child to the culture & history while enjoying being a tourist myself. In looking at the shore excursions, I'm just having a difficult time determining what would be the best options for us. We'll be spending 2 days prior to boarding in Barcelona. And the 7night cruise will be stopping over at Florence/Pisa, Rome, and Palma. Any expert help (esp those who have traveled with children) would be greatly appeciated!
