Default golden Princess with young kids -- recommendations?

We are boarding the Golden Princess in a week. I've done all my research about excursions with little ones (not much to offer, unfortunately, due to age or weight restrictions), but I'm not sure about the ship itself. Our TA sold us on this one because of the kids' programs they offer. I'm just hoping I can convince them to check it out for a few hours while we're at sea.

Anybody else traveled this ship with little ones (7 and 4)? What onboard activities do you recommend? Are the shows OK for little kids?

Any tips are greatly appreciated.

Just be sure to drop the kids at the kids program the first day, so they can meet their new friends. Most kids do enjoy all the activities...I'm sure they will also like seeing the shows after dinner.

Be sure to take them to the Kid's Club registration on the first day. You can find the time in your newsletter, which should be in your cabin when you board.

You shouldn't have to "convince" them to go, they'll probably be impossible to get out of the Kid's Club once they've been there !

The early show's should be fine for young children.

Fern is right, usually the kids don't want to leave, they are having such a good time. Bet they love it!
