We are considering a November cruise from Ensenada to Hawaii with our sons, 4 & 5 years old. There are 4 days at sea. Is there enough for them to do during those days? They are very active guys, full of energy. Any one have experience with this? Thanks for your help. Julie
The problem is that Celebrity's youth program is only seasonal meaning that it operates in the summer and during the major holidays. If the cruise is Thanksgiving week, then you're in good shape. Otherwise don't count on any youth activities for your kids. Perhaps you want to explore other options. If so, read two articles I wrote on this site: Best Cruise Line? Ask a kid! or Kids' Activities and Facilities by Cruise Line.
Good luck in your decision!

we have a 4 year old and went with Carnival. He is VERY active so we were worried about being stuck on a ship for 7 nights. I don't know what facilities will be available on your ship, but we had fantastic ones on the Spirit. They mostly did arts and crafts, tunnel play etc. If you look below you will see the programme in another of my posts.
There doesn't seem to be a great deal of area for kids to "run" which was difficult, but we did manage to burn some of that extra off in the pool!
