For such a short trip I would skip the cruise and just go to a resort at one of the places you mentioned or even in Florida. The problem is that with a cruise you will eat up so much time making connections and getting on the cruise ship at a specific time. With a resort, you could be on the beach several hours after you drop off the kids.

Be sure to check out the spring break schedules.

The new passport requirement will go into affect soon if they haven't already. If you don't have a passport already you may be out of luck even with the rush fees. I was at a small post office last Saturday and there must have been about 50 people waiting to get their passport applications submitted.

I am not a “cruise person” but I have seen them on at what looked like pretty good prices.
