Sorry to disagree, but NCL has an excellent kids program for kids young children's ages (say 2-10). The Spirit has some of the best children's facilities I have seen and is equal to Carnival or RCCL in my opinion. We are cruising on the Sun in March out of New Orleans. Take a look at the Spirit's kids facilities and their children's pool area which is far superior to Carnial's facilities on their brand new ships... I found the staff to be every bit as qualified too. You can't go wrong with any of these lines.
