We didn't see any of that on our DCL cruises, in fact just the opposite. DCL staff we very proactive about keeping kids out of the adults areas. The exception was kids cutting through the adult pool area on the Dream. Not hanging around, but cutting through. They need to be more proactive about resolving that issue for sure.
We're an older couple who just finished our 13th DCL cruise, one with our son and his family, all the others were just the two of us.
Only once in all of those cruises have we ever seen a child in the adult pool, and a CM was there to handle the situation before the child was fully wet! We've never seen them at the Cove Cafe or in any areas around the pool, other than just passing through. On Dream that's a problem, but it's due to the layout of the ship, and the CM's just keep the families moving along. On Magic, some families do use the forward elevators and then have to walk through the adult area, but I've never seen anyone lingering.
I'm sure there are some cruises where there have been problems with kids in adult areas, but we've been fortunate enough not to have run into them. As long as DCL can keep things this way, we'll continue to enjoy our DCL cruises.
