We had a lot of fun on this cruise but I think any cruise is hard with little ones. Kids who are not toilet trained are limited to a very small toddler area which is not enclosed and is located near the stairs.Chasing a toddler 18 mos and keeping up with an older child in the pool was a challenge. The kids programs seemed great but my son age 5 1/2 would not stay so we could not take advantage of that. Maybe if they had waited a little longer to page us he would have been ok.
The first night someone else was seated at our table by mistake and had already been partially served, so we had to wait while our wait staff cleared their table and set it again. After that night the food was great and the service was excellent. Our cabin steward was the most polite and sweet natured crew member on the ship, even better than our wait staff!!
The characters were slightly inaccessible. My son did not want to wait in long lines to see them, but that was really not a problem for us.

The best we've had

Good programs. Complimentary or less expensive baby care would be nice considering the price of this cruise. Also a live band near any of the pools would be great.

Children's Programs
