Hoping to plan first cruise!

Looking to plan our first cruise! Any advice on which boat would be the best for a 4 year old boy?

You can't go wrong with a DCL cruise.

The Dream or Fantasy would be nice, the Aquaduck is real fun and kid friendly, but I do believe their is a height requirement.. not sure what it is?

Any DCL ship would be great, the Dream and the Fantasy have the new water play area also for the younger kids.

Just did a 4 day on the Dream last month. Our 4 year old grandson was with us. He loved it and has been asking to go back daily. He was a half inch too short to ride the Aquaduck. You have to be 42" to ride with someone. He just shrugged it off and went on the Mickey slide. He was able to do the Pelican Plunge slide at Castaway Cay. I'm sure you'll enjoy whatever ship you choose.
