We have sailed spring break with our children who are now 14 and 10. They love the Celebrity programs and have always had a blast. They were 4 and 8 on our first Celebrity cruise and have been treated like princesses each time we go. There is a children's menu, but they were encouraged to order from the adult menu as well. Many times they ordered a little from each. The last cruise we took, they didn't even look at the kids' menu because there is such variety on the regular menu there was always something they liked. And if they ordered it and didn't like it, they could order something else. I would recommend going to the Meet me on board feature to find others cruising with kids at the same time. My 14 year old met many fellow cruisers that way, arranged to meet on board, and had a "group" to hang out with from day 1. I think there ended up being around 8 of them. That really helped a lot as well.
