We too are on your sailing and in the exact same situation. From what I've read on our other social site "Face place" I think we'll be okay. Apparently the characters are everywhere for the kids and they stay super busy and entertained in the kids club each day. I'm more concerned with some of the adult programming like mixology, etc but plan to go to get services upon boarding if nothing opens up before then. I guess I figure we'll save some money by not paying for some of this stuff ha ha. I was hoping for a character breakfast for the kids at least but so far, no luck. Just going to try and make the most of it and hope everyone is right that we won't notice we didn't get to sign up for anything. Just stinks to pay so much and know we'll be on a smaller ship for two weeks with out the reassurance that we have some cool things already in place to keep us entertained but I did read these TA sailings are unique in that the programming is different and varied from the norm anyways...I did buy some cheap, fun dress up stuff for pirate night for my kids so we can have fun getting ready for that. I figure they won't know what they may be missing if I don't tell them!
