Talking ncl jewel or Carib Princess for infant&3yr o

We(couple, a 6mths o & 3yr o) are planning a cruise from NY to bahamas on the NCL Jewel or to new england on the Caribbean Princess. We've been on numerous NCL ships and are happy in general with the overall experience. But Princess will be new to us. What would your recommendation be with the following priorities in descending order - kids, food(mainly buffet), ship decor and service, and weather? THANKS!!!

Don't think you can go wrong with Princess, they certainly have decent food and entertainment and even kids programs, but you'll have to check into the age requirements...

We were thinking of the msc Poesia too because of the date factor. but such HORRIBLE customer reviews....Donna, what's your take on that ship?

I have no idea about that ship, may-be there is a review or two to read through? I thought the Princess Horizon Court was good, nice selections and plenty that I liked.
