London/Paris or Italy or cruise with 4 kids?

Jump to last reply

We have 4 kids ages 7, 9, 12, 15. We've never been to Europe. We are planning on going this summer but need some serious help. We thought a cruise might be good, never having been there before. We really want to go to London/Paris, but aren't sure of all the logistics. With a family of 6, we would have to get 2 hotel rooms, or rent an apt. Then we wonder what the restaurants are like. We go out to eat all the time and some restaurants look @ us like we're crazy with 4 kids. Then we wonder are they going to be bored if we dragged them around for a week. (I don't think they will be, it's just a thought). I like the idea of just flying to the country and sightseeing on our own. The cruise doesn't give much time to experience a place. Should we do guided tours to be sure we get to see certain places. I wouldn't want to miss something because of really long lines. We thought the cruise would keep them entertained a little more. Then another thought was to just go to Italy for a week and visit various places there. I feel like I have a million ideas bouncing around in my head. I have several travel books on these places, but it helps hearing from real people who have done it. It just makes me nervous going across the world and not knowing what to expect when we have 4 kids in tow. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
