I am plotting an upcoming family vacation
to the Caribbean
. No one in our group has ever been there. I love sailing, my family
likes boats fine, but other things too. My kids
are little (3,5,7).
I am considering BVI or Bahamas
for all the reasons everyone else does.
Here is my main question. Since my kids
have never spent more than one overnight on board, would I be better off planning a short cruise
, say 3-4 days, combined with a more traditional resort or hotel
or with all there is to see and do on and off the boat, should I not worry about them going stir crazy after day 4?
second, any strong opinions on bahamas
versus bvi with little ones? I am leaning bahamas (abacos) for shallow waters and natural beauty/isolation (more up my family's path) than what I perceive to be a party/bar scene in BVI?
We would most likely be going sometime June-Aug, or possibly next spring break (march). I know summer is hurricane
seasons and all, and plan accordingly.
