Default first timers

I am so greatful to have found this thread. We are booked for the June 27th sailing on Elation. We have never cruised before. We are taking our 8 and 9 yrs. olds and are wondering if they will enjoy the trip. How many of the shows and bingos and such can they attend with us? Is anyone else traveling on this date with young children?

We cruised with our 9 and 7 year olds last October on the Paradise. We never enrolled them in Camp Carnival because we're too paranoid for that, but they had an excellent time. When we asked them if they would rather go to Disney World next time they both said no they would rather cruise. By the way they are so exhausted from the pool and walking around that they fall asleep as soon as their little heads hit the pillow at night. In fact ours kept to their same bedtime of 7:30/8:00.

They will enjoy the 24/7 Pizza Bar for sure...
Dress them up a little & take them to the fine dinning each evening...

No, we didn't go out. We either went to sleep or watched T.V.

By the way if we wouldn't put them in Camp Carnival why on earth would we go out. Who knows who has those keys (room steward,ect.) Actually, one night , the room steward came to the door and knocked about 8:30 and when no one answered he came in to deliver a beach towel he had promised us. When he saw me approaching the door he apologized. So you see, it would be foolish to even entertain the thought of leaving never mind them waking up and not finding you there.
