    We are cruising on the Wonder 2/2/2014 for 5n with 4 adults and DD6 &DD2 almost 3. But have never been on a cruise and not sure how to plan our days utilizing the nursery and Kids' Clubs. Any suggestions when it comes time to reserve Palo and the nurse

    Ahoy Connie!
    I love that you are continuing to use the Moms Panel for all your cruise plans!  I had the same situation when I sailed for the first time-one in the nursery and one in the kids' club.  Since the kids programming is offered all day, every day usually from 9:00am to midnight, I didn't worry too much about scheduling time.  Each night, sit down with your daughter and decide together which events and activities in the Personal Navigator sound like fun! I have a feeling it will be a lot so hopefully the times she chooses to "check-in" to the club or lab will coincide with your nursery times.  Ten hours of nursery time can be pre-booked so I would recommend times that you know your little one will be in a playful, happy mood.  I mixed it up by choosing some late morning, early afternoon and after dinner times.  I was able to add more nursery hours once we boarded and was also able to change around a few of the times I had pre-booked.  If you want to enjoy an evening at Palo, I would try to reserve it for around the same time you have your normally scheduled dinner.  Your older daughter can eat in the kids' club or you can pick up quick service (Deck 9) or call in room service for both girls before you go for your adult-only dining experience.  I would estimate about two hours for your dinner at Palo. 
    I hope this helps, Connie! Thanks again for stopping by!
