I’ve tried to articulate with other cruising parents just what makes this lifestyle so wonderful for kids. I think what it comes down to is when you’re out here the world becomes kid-sized. The simple things that the adults enjoy—a life that's about repairing boats, finding food, doing laundry, exploring and hanging out—translates into a world where kids are free to be kids.

There’s no pressure to get to school on time, there’s no push to be like someone else, and there is no end of new things to experience. But unlike other types of travel, with cruising there is always the comfort and routine of home to fall back on.
