'I feel safer with them on a cruise ship': Families share tips on how to take a cruise with kids

“We thought, we’ll try out a cruise and see how it goes,” the newspaper editor from Russellville, Kentucky, told USA TODAY. 

After trying out a few different cruise lines and itinerary lengths, the Stapletons figured out what worked for them as a family – from which amenities Emily and Molly liked most, to which school breaks fell at the best times for cruising.
