Yes, they do. Wow, 3-7 is really young. I think we didn't leave our kids in the MDR til they were 11 & 14. Even then I told them in advance that the servers would be telling me if they misbehave.
By then it was probably our 10th cruise, they knew the routine, and did fine.

I didn't actually SEE this odd thing on a cruise, but learned of it some moths after it happened.

I am blessed to work on Castaway Cay as an island medic at times. After returning to Port Canaveral on the Wonder, the boat was cleaned, stocked, and the guests began to arrive. During the sailaway party, the crew had received a May Day from another ship that one of their passengers had gone overboard. As it turns out, a couple aboard one of the Carnival ships was having an argument. The male said he was going to jump overboard, and the female said for him to go ahead. With the assistance of liquid courage, he did!

The Carnival ship tried to launch it's Zodiac for the rescue, and it popped. That's when the May Day call went out. The Wonder was in range and heard the call. Now most of us have been at the Sailaway parties on deck ... are they at all quiet?? (I DOUBT it!) Regardless, the Captain asked the guests to hush so they could listen for the man overboard ... and absolutley amazing to me, the guests all hushed up and the Cast Members on the Wonder located him!

Wet, cold, and apparently no longer desiring to 'swim with the fishes,' the man was rescued by the Cast Members from the Wonder in their own rescue boat! He was assessed and found to be just fine, though I imagine he spent some quality time with medical professionals after that unplanned excursion!

The ship's doctor told me about this on my next trip to work on Castaway Cay after I asked about the Commendation from the US Coast Guard for a 'Rescue at Sea' that was hanging on the wall on I95 (the main thoroughfare for the crew on-board). He told me that Americans must be CRAZY! He said the man was just fine physically. Thank God!

Why?
Are we the only country to have someone attempt suicide? Why should we all be judged by one sick person's actions? I'm pretty sure people do stupid things all over the world.
On our recent Med cruise, after climbing to the top of the leaning tower of Pisa only to find a very high fence around the top, we were later told how so many people would go there to commit suicide.

Yeah 11 and 14 could totally handle it. Maybe even a little younger. But 3-7, no way I wold do that. It is nice that servers are so accommodating though.

Our cruise on the Magic in 2007 we were at the family pool and there was a couple with their 4 children under the age of 10. The children didn't listen well and were basically ignored. A couple times I glanced their way to see if they noticed that the 2nd to youngest child was near drowning a couple times by this point. So...I noticed that there was her toddler playing between her legs with a string.....before I could turn my head, the youngster got a good hold and pulled her tampon out of her suit. We left quickly. ...not sure if they did or not.
