Default Safety onboard for children

We are sailing on Rccl's Explorer for the first time, and my children are totally looking forward to partaking in the childrens program. My question is this: Are there any barriers to prevent kids from climbing up on the railings and falling overboard? I may sound a bit paranoid, but since this is our first time cruising, I have no idea what to expect. Also, has anyone ever had 2 kids of different ages stay in the same group? I would much prefer my son, who is 9, to stay with our daughter who is 6, while in the childcare center.

Default Re: Safety onboard for children

I'm the family cruise editor at CruiseMates.com and I don't think you have anything to be concerned about as far as safety is concerned. The newer the ship, the more kid-proof they are as is the case of the Explorer. Most ships have plenty of plexiglass below the outer railings.
I would advise putting your kids in the age appropriate groups in the youth program. Generally, a younger child can't participate in an older aged group, so that would mean your older child would have to be with a younger set which may not be to his/her liking. My daughter, only child, has found that she generally met at least one friend in the kids programs each cruise that we've been on.
The Explorer has fabulous facilities for kids and families -- rock climbing walls, ice skating rinks, mini golf, etc. You're sure to have a great cruise.
