I would think, that if you can do some 2-3 week cruises, especially to areas you are unfamilar with, it would be a good barometer of how well the family, as a unit, will take to full time cruising.

In following this thread, it seems you would be better off with more of an "outline", than a specific plan, such as a circumnavigation. So that you are taking what you have, rather than trying to force yourselves into a specific box. You already seem to have that in mind, and while it may not "go along" with much of the stuff you read, if it works for you is the main thing. In other words, don't exclude anything, but don't feel pushed into doing more than you feel right with.

As an example, simply going from Portland, OR to Portland, ME would be a heck of a cruise.
