We're looking at taking a cruise in November '06 to the Caribbean, it will be me, my wife, and our two boys who will be 3 1/2 and 6 at time of departure. We just did the magic and we loved it, however the other lines seem to be a lot more economical (re: cheaper). I've been reading various reviews and threads and the other cruise lines seem to score fairly well for older kids, especially RCCL. And, the other kids clubs seem to get very high marks (as well as more flexible dining options). However, outside of the kids clubs I'm concerned that the shows won't be suitable for the age of our kids, and that there isn't much else for them to do on the cruise other than play in the pool. So the questions I have are: - do the other lines have shows that my kids would enjoy? - do the other lines have kids pools that are on-par or better than the Mickey pool? As of now, we're pretty sure we're going to do Disney again (especially since the magic is adding an outdoor movie screen), but the RCCL ships look pretty darn nice as well. Any thoughts? Has anyone done the other cruises with kids the same age as ours? Thanks in advance!!
