Default are there kids menus?

We'll be on the NCL Dawn for 11 days. We're wondering if the restaurants offer kids menus, and if they do, are they required to order from them for every meal? 11 days is a long time to be limited to the usual spaghetti, burgers, mac & cheese and chicken nuggets!

There are no "kid's menues" to the best of my knowlege, but there are kids offerings on the main menu. Are they required to order from them? No. They can order whatever you (they) want from the menu. The kid's plates are offered only because kids tend to like certain things, but not all kids are the same. I knew a 5 y.o. who loved fresh oysters on the half-shell. She'd suck 'em right down!

There are individual childrens menus on Norwegian, Carnival, and Royal Caribbean Ships. They usually do double duty as a coloring book. Children are not restricted to just eating from the childrens menu and may order from the sdult menu as well.
I wish my kids would get bored with the usual spaghetti, burgers, mac & cheese and chicken nuggets, and try a little grown-up food. Oh well someday my kids will eat brocolli.

Thought I'd answer my own questions now that we're home from our cruise. For everyone interested in the answer.

Kids menus are offered - the same one in every restaurant, every night. Your basic kids menu stuff. Kids can order off the regular menu or the kids menu, or a combination of both. The kids menu did have some games, coloring, etc on it, but you'll have to bring your own pen/ pencil/ crayons. We were never offered any.

Just wanted to add Princess to the list of cruise lines that offer children's menus, a coloring page and have crayons available too.
