Default Is Explorer of the Seas a good ship for a family?

We're thinking about booking a 9 night RCCL cruise for 2 adults and a 2 yr old. Has anyone done EOS with a child this range? Any reccommendations as far as cabin catagory? We're cruising Disney this year with him but EOS leaves from NJ which is where we live so we thought that would be convienent for next year.

Any input would be great... any other ships leave NY/NJ/PA that would be better?

RCI is a good option for kids. Keep in mind, though, that your two year old can't visit the youth program until he/she is 3 and potty trained. There is a daily 45 minute Aqua Tots play session you can go to w/your child, but you must stay there too. RCI does have private babysitting (hourly fee) for little ones. I used it once and felt the sitter was very good.

Smooth sailing,

Actually, I feel any Voyager or Freedom class ship are great for cruising with families/kids. Once your child is older, there will be even more activities for them.

Have a great time.!
