Cruising with 1 child...
My husband and I have an 8 month old right now, and are planning to start a 2-3 year cruise in 5 years. We are wondering a few things and hope those of you out there with kids can help us out.
First, anyone sailing with just 1 child? What's that like? Are they missing peers or does it seem okay? (At this point, it's hard to tell exactly what our son's personality will be, so general advice would be great)
Second, our son will be almost 6 when we take off. This seems like an ideal age, but what is your experience?
At this point, we're still not sure if we are going to go for #2, or if we do what the spacing will be. For many reasons, 1 child makes sense to us, but we are worried about isolating him too much when we take off on our journey. Since we plan to spend lots of time anchored and with other cruisers, I imagine that there will be plenty of other children for him to play with....
I suppose this is just the beginning of lots of questions...BUT we all have to begin somewhere!
