Hi, we are booked to go to Tassie on the Spirit of Tasmania at the end of January. Was so much cheaper with 4 kids and a car but now we have 9 hours to keep said 4 children occupied..
Have you done it and how did you cope ?
Any tips?

We just did it with our 2 1/2 year old twin boys and a 4 year old. It was tiring but fine. There is a small play area on deck 7 where the restaurants are, and on deck ten there is a face painter and tvs showing kids programs. i would suggest booking a cabin for the day - i think it cost $180 but was well worth it as they could sleep and play in there contained. Good luck!
