    Suggestions for flight and cruise travel

    Hello, I'm a long time fan of this site; this is my first time asking a question.

    Our family is going to be taking a vacation in December; it will involve a flight with (1) layover to New Orleans, a cab/uber ride to a hotel, and 2 days later - a 5 day cruise. Then we will have another cab/Uber ride to the airport, and a flight with (1) layover home.

    My youngest child turned 5 in September. She is currently 43 inches tall but only weighs 36 pounds. For every day car travel, we use a forward facing seat with 5 point harness, as she does not meet the 40 inch/40 pound requirement for a booster.

    While I have other friends who think my daughter would be fine flying without any restraint, I'd prefer to be err on the side of safety. What would you recommend using? I know there is an option to request an Uber with a car seat, so I'm mainly concerned about what would be the best option for the flight.
