Caribbean Princess in August to E. Car with 2 boys, 11,13??
Hello - We've only sailed on RCCL, including one with the boys on the massive Voyager, which offered a fantastic sports deck. We're considering this cruise, mainly b/c they have mini golf and basketball for the boys (though they're disappointed about no free self-serve icecream). Would you recommend this cruise for families with 11 and 13 yr old boys?? We're also considering Carnival Triumph to E. Car. Thanks!!!
We took our boy 12 and 16 on the Caribbean Princess last July. They had a great time. They did say something about the ice cream not being free. They had a lot to do on the ship. We are going back on Carnival this summer only because of the cost. My wife and I love both.

Caribbean Princess is a great choice. Make sure that your boys register at the teen center. They don't have to participate in the activities if they don't want to, but if they want access to the computers then they need to be registered.
my boys are 12 and 15 and LOVE the big rccl mega ships. been on navigator, voyager and freedom. we are now considering princess star in april because it is $1,300. cheaper than going on the freedom again. my kids never go in the kids club so they love the ice skating, golf, rock climbing, basketball. i'll give it another couple of days thought.
Im not a big fan of the CB. Ive been on it once and it was overly crowded to me and the crew seemed like they were stretched pretty thin. They bascially added another deck without adding anything else. Take a look at her sister ships to see what I mean.
The balconys on the Caribe deck are enormous so if you're a balcony person thats the way Id go. They're 10x10, I walked it off, and they're half covered. The cabin was decent size also and the fridge actually got stuff cold. The bathroom was really tiny.
I done a bit of a review back in the Princess section back in Sept 05 if you want to dig it up.
