Default Grandeur 1st time- Mexico

My family and I are thinking about going to the Mexican Rivera on a 7day cruise on the Grandeur. My kids are 4 and 6. My husband has never been on a cruise. Is there a lot to do for the kids? Please write back with any insight for us! Thanks!

Noteworthy Features: Adventure, Enchantment, Explorer, Grandeur, Legend, Radiance, Splendor, Vision, and Voyager of the Seas have the largest cabins in RCI's fleet, plus family suites. All ships offer Adventure Science, which is a fun, hands-on learning program.

Wow! Factor: On the Adventure, Explorer, Radiance and Voyager of the Seas, unique Send this Article to a Friend
kid-friendly activities include rock climbing, ice skating rink, basketball courts, roller-blading and a Johnny Rocket's concession at no extra cost. Extensive kids' pool and slide area (Adventure Beach) on Explorer, Voyager and Radiance of the Seas. Explorer of the Seas has an atmospheric and oceanographic lab where parents and children can tour and participate in interactive sessions with scientists aboard ship.

Just make sure to read through the cruise "compass" every evening to see what activities they will be having the following day, bet there will be things in there your husband may want to check out. Be sure to let us know how the family enjoyed cruising when you return, have fun, I know you all will :-)
