We are planning to cruise in September. We have two boys 4 and 3. The oldest will turn 5 in September, maybe on the cruise. Read a few bad things about the kids' club for this age group. Please reassure me. We are trying to decide between 7 night or 10 night. We are concerned that 10 nights might be too much. Never cruised with kids. We are afraid there will not be enough for us all to do for the 10 days particularly during the day. Afraid we will be "cruised out." We are also concerned with shore excursions. Is it worth taking the kids on shore excursions? Are there excursions that they would enjoy? Considering the cost of the excursions would it make more sense to skip them altogether? Can you leave them in the kids' club and go on an excursion? THANKS!!
