The hubs and I have 3 kids and I'm looking for a reasonably priced wallet to hold 5 passports, tickets/passes, ship card, etc... How have you been carrying around all the VIPs for families? Any of you have any luck with kids wearing their own neck or waist belt?
How old are the kids? The two adults should each carry their own passports and maybe cruise ship card, in case you get separated. Excursion tickets for use just one day would be more convenient to carry in a bundle and not necessarily in a secret compartment.
The kids are 9,12,&17. The 17 year old can carry her own and honestly, she and the 12 year old will want to explore on their own. (I read somewhere that some families like to keep everything together in one spot).
We always carry our two sons passports until they were in their late teens. I am not sure what you mean or are implying when you say that the 17 and 12 year old will want to go off by themselves. Just where do you expect them to go? When you mention ship card I assume you are talking about a cruise. When we were on a ship, the kids had no need for id or any cards other than the room card so all of the other stuff just stayed in the room safe.
We are taking a cruise then later a trip to London/Paris. For the cruise, we will leave the boat for excursions and the older two might want to go do shopping away from the family (same area). I'm sure in London/Paris the girls might want to hang out at a nearby cafe or visit museums in their own.
