I sure hope it is! We're leaving Feb 14 on the Island Princess with a 12 yr old and twin 9 yr olds.
Seriously, we previously cruised with youngsters. It is not the itinerary that they enjoy most it's the ship itself. If the ship has kid friendly areas they will have a great time.
The kids are at perfect ages to see the Canal. They will learn so much about the construction and history of it. There will be a narrator onboard throughout the crossing and they should be fascinated. Good choice!
i think they will be fasinated by the canal. I would suggest that you sit down as a family and read-up a little bit about the canal, that way they will know somewhat to expect. They will really like going through the Locks
