Question Kids groups

This will be our first cruise as a family and younger brother (5) must be with older brother (7) while playing. How strict are the groupings for kids activities? We have not chosen a cruise line yet, but realize they would be in the same group on Disney (EXPENSIVE) but not some of the others. Any insight?

I just checked Camp Carnival, and as I suspected, those ages are together, so I would assume the others are the same...here is some info from the web site...more info to come from Cruisemates experiencesm for sure...

Welcome to Camp Carnival where kids ages 2-11 have their own space, games, paints, crayons, pool area and everything else that young cruisers love. We make sure they have so much fun, they don't even notice they're being supervised. They think our counselors are just big kids. And another plus, from 10 p.m. - 3 a.m. every night we offer great babysitting services!

Princess has a top-notch kids program as does Royal Caribbean, if you go to their web sites you will find lots of info, 5-7 are usually in the same group, just out of curiosity why "must" they be in the same group?

Thanks for the replies.

If you check a little closer, camp carnival subdivides the 2-11 year olds into 2-5, 6-8, 9-11.

The boys are very close and have the most fun playing together. The five year old would be very upset if he was not grouped with his older brother, and no one should be upset on vacation. I'm not sure why they are so rigid about the age groups. A 5 and a 2 year old have very different playing styles.

Can't do the princess cruise because of time constraints and they don't have cruises for under 7 days in march from any port we would use.

Royal Caribbean is also 6-8 age group.

We will probably end up using Disney.

Thanks again.
