Family cruise for 5 on a budget and special diet

Jump to last reply

So more than anything my husband and I would like to take our family on a cruise to Caribbean/Bahamas for a vacation. Kids are 9, 7 and 6. We have never cruised before. We live in Alberta, Canada and can fly out of Edmonton or Calgary.

We have a vegan diet (no meat, dairy or eggs...or any animal products). Thus limiting our cruise lines to choose from. I know I cant use Carnival or Royal Caribbean as they said they do not know how to accommodate this, but, Norwegian, Disney and Celebrity can, and I havnt yet checked with MSC.

Its also hard to get 5 ppl in a stateroom, maybe connecting rooms? but will that cost more?

I really need to find a deal because flights alone are almost the same cost as the cruise.

I'm wondering if MSC would be a good route as kids are free?

I can go anytime in November/December 2013.

Can anyone provide me any advice, I find the cruises are costing 4-5,000 with at least 3,000 for air that's 7-8,000 already not including everything else like gratuities, excursions etc.

Thanks so much for any help!
