Hi Kathy,
The kids programs on RCCL are just wonderful, the kids love it. If you are cruising during the spring break there will be lots more kids too. Do you have any ships that you are considering?? Now would be a good time to figure out what ship and call a travel agent and see what cabins they have available, the larger family cabins fill up fast, good luck.

You may also want to try the "bargain finder" and see what you can get:

RCCL has one of the best childrens programs in the industry. My wife and I are taking my 3 and 5 year olds on the EOS in April.

I took my grandaughter, then 7yrs old, on the Sovereign two years ago. Before sailing all she wanted to do was stay with me and swim in the pool. After going to the orientation the first night and seeing all of the other kids, I thought she would break a leg getting to the kids' club. It was "her" club and she couldn't wait to get there. On Coco Cay they even had some parent/child activities.

She met a lot of nice kids from all over the world. In fact in the airport, there was a lot of hugging and sad goodbyes.

There is also a new ID program for kids. I do not know all of the details, but upon boarding, your children are given a color coded wristband showing their muster station.. Should there be any kind of emergency when they are not with their parents, they can be taken by a crewmember to the correct station.

If you haven't used the coke stickers before, that is another great item. For about $20 your kids can get a sticker on their Sign & Sail (blue card). They can then get soft drinks at any of the bars or from the bar waiters. My grandaughter loved it. She was so proud to have her own "credit card"
The sodas are only served in cups, no bottles or cans, but they are unlimited.

Hope you have a great cruise no matter which ship you choose, just so it is RCCL <g>. They are my personal favorite.
