We have been on 2 Magic cruises. One in May and one in October. We thought the crowds and kids clubs were pretty good. I have booked a spring break cruise on the Fantasy for next spring break. I am kinds of scared of how busy it may be. What has your experience been? Thanks

We were on the Magic for Christmas a few years ago and it wasn't bad. Each ship has a limit of how many kids it can take -- maritime law won't allow it to exceed capacity. We also sailed on the Wonder in January and the cruise director said we were 400 kids below max. Yes it was quieter, but the Christmas cruise didn't seem like it was wall-to-wall kids. Spring break varies from area to area -- not all schools across the country have the same week off. So I doubt the week you sail will be any busier than a holiday cruise -- there just isn't enough room to pack 'em in like the parks do.

Spring break time may bring more older children (school age) to the cruise but all cruises have a max on number of children so pretty much you can always expect to have the same amount (approximately) of kids newborn-18 on any cruise that is sold out

It will be crazy busy but I don't think it will seem park crazy busy, if that makes sense

We were on the Dream for spring break and it didn't seem all that bad to me. There were lines for elevators around meal times and after pirate night, but the crowds didn't come close to what we've experienced at the parks before.

It should not be too bad. We were on a full Dream in June and the only time it felt crowed was for the Believe show. You also learn quickly to stay away from the mid ship elevators.

Wow we are on the same ship for next year:banana:, we did last year for spring break last year on the dream it was crow, yes very crow you look every where and you see a lot of people every where. But it great time no absent for the kids at school is not to hot, weather is great, but they keep the kids very busy, the only think that I did not like is the pool is way to small for all the people that is on the ship at the same time. Think that is smaller than the pool of the magic and wonder. But the have so many thinks to do but all does 3 day at the sea the pool will be pack I hope that the aqua lab will help out the crow of the pool. See u on board.
