We are sailing on the Caribbean Princess on April 1, 2007, which is our oldest son's 9th birthday ... other than the birthday cake on the first formal night, do they do anything else? Balloons in the room, party in the kid zone, etc. Also, the day our cruise ends is Easter Sunday. Any tips for handling that one? Our boys are 8 and 6. Thanks in advance for your tips!
THe kids' program on some lines will decorate the room for a bday child (I know they do this on RCI). However, being that it's the first night, I wouldn't count on it since there often is not a formal youth program that night, just registration. I'd bring balloons and streamers and tape from home and tape them on to your cabin door so he sees them when he wakes up. I did that once for my daughter on her bday while at sea.
