Ok so my niece (who just turned 9) loved her first cruise so much this year....and she did so well on it.....that Auntie, Grammy, and Grampy have decided to take her on her SECOND cruise next year, which falls days before her birthday. She knows that COVID is preventing the cruise lines from sailing (we've been very open with her about the virus, as half our family, including me, work in healthcare), but keeps mentioning that she wants to go again....who could blame her!
We know that we have to prepare her for the cruise (get her new clothes, etc.) and that it's not just something we can tell her last min. However, we also don't want to get her hopes up by telling her too early, only to find out that the trip is a no-go due to COVID. The cruise will be next August, so when should we tell her? We were thinking maybe sometime around Easter?
