That's how I think too. My son loves to be around other kids. We took him on the 11 night Galaxy in 2002 and he had a ball. We took him on lots of excursions, but the sea days he was in the club (except for lunch and dinner breaks) and my husband and I could sit by the pool . We actually watched his group go by as he waved happily to us. The also had a few family activities that we also attended. It was great.
