I can't give you advice on Key West, as I've only been there once and that was many years ago.
Besides beaching, consider playgrounds, parks, aquariums, zoos, anything kids would like that doesn't involve much sitting and driving.
In Key West we did the trolley tour, the aquarium, then browsed the shops.
I would say all ports are "kid friendly"....after all, kids LIVE there!!!Its comments like this one above why I dont stay on this board after i cruise. It got a little crazy with my water wing post.
anyway back to the post....Your kids are young and as long as there is a beach and or animals they will have a great time. If anything think back to your favorite ports and I'd go to the most relaxing ones if possible.
The Butterfly Conservatory.
Took the kids there the times we were on Disney when they were little... Nice, relaxing, butterflies flitting around your head. Fun.
Nassau, I like Ardastra Zoo and Gardens... I have a picture I like to post.
When the kids were little... I think my daughter was 4 in that picture.
This picture is from this past November
Still Ardastra... we just like it there.
OUr dd (6 at the time) LOVED the butterfy conservatory. We took the trollet tour. Was nice to be able tosee a lot of the area and not have to walk but can get off and on when we wanted.We did the butterfly conservatory and Conch trolley exact same thing with our daughter who was 3 in July. She loves it.
We also did a day pass at a resort on Cabel (sp?) Beach in Nassaua (sp?) We lookes in to Atlantis but she was to young for any of the water park activities. She loved the zero entry pool because she could run in and out of it. There was also a pool with a waterfall. And the resort daypass includes a towel, beach chairs and unmotorized equitment so we went on a kayak too! She had a blast and just asked me last week when we were going back on the cruise ship again.
