Default Anyone taken thier kids on the Zuiderdam?

Starting to look for something apr07. I've seen on thier webpage where they upgraded the kids program. We have a 4yr old that would be coming. Any first hand experience with the little ones on this ship?
thanks!

We were on sistership during Spring break with a 7 year old. She had a great time. Kids program was not as extensive as others but she enjoyed herself a lot and there were lots of kids.
Half Moon Cay is great for kids and families.

Last year I went with my parents and 7 year old sister on the Zuiderdam. Even though they were refurbishing the childrens center at the time, she had a great time and made a lot of friends. The activities vary from pizza parties to arts & crafts to treasure hunts. I'm sure your 4 year old would have an awesome time!
