We've traveled with my youngest two when they were 3 & 5. I was worried before we were onboard, but the balcony doors were too difficult for either of them to open by themselves.

Falmouth: Irie Blue Hole - we booked a private tour & had a fantastic day

Labadee: I'd say an over the water cabana, but the prices have gotten ridiculous

We've reserved ours online the past two years. They do go quickly, though. If they've changed the ability to book through the excursion list online, it must've been recently.
We love the cabanas -...
Freedom lover -- NOT like the Indy
Hmm, to each their own I guess. We just sailed on Indy this past December & Freedom the year before. Loved both of them & minus the drink machines, didn't really notice much of a difference. Our...

We enjoyed Paradise Beach with our 6 kids (ages 3-14) last year, and it didn't break the bank.

We were also on the 12/6 sailing, and I agree about the CD. Last year on Freedom we had Richard Spacey who is amazing. Other than that, our experience was fantastic as well. A beautiful ship with...

With our kids, there was so much available that we didn't need any outside snacks. I did throw a box or two of the cereal in our bag on port days, just in case my 3 & 5 yo wanted something during...

We sailed last October on FOS with our then 3yo daughter & 4yo son, and they enjoyed the time they spent in Adventure Ocean. We didn't leave them there much, just a couple of times during the...

Ha! This made me laugh bc it's so true. I love my coffee, and while it's certainly not something that will ruin my cruise, you do have to wonder why they can't seem to brew a decent cup.

We had two littles who still needed the occasional nap or earlier bedtime, so we spent a lot of time on the balcony just enjoying the peace & quiet, read, kept them happy & quiet with...

If you decide to go with a private tour, here's another recommendation for Ricardo of Liberty Tours. Our family had a fabulous time with him last October when we were in Falmouth. Also, I know...

Our youngest two were 3 & 5, and they had a great time. There are some high spots where you can jump in, but we just watched on those. I did take their puddle jumper swimmies and they were able to...

I started with e-mailing to inquire about tours/rates, etc, and Ricardo followed up with a few phone calls to make sure we understood everything and to answer any questions. There was no money...

We used Liberty Tours Jamaica last October & had a fabulous time. We went to Irie Blue Hole followed by Scotchies for lunch, all of which was amazing. Ricardo couldn't have taken better care of our...

We just went on our first family cruise last October, and everyone is so right about only packing half of what you think you'll need. I thought I under packed & still had more than necessary.

Not sure about Indy, but I know they put them all together on Freedom last October. Our daughters were 14, but since there weren't many teens who frequented the club they didn't separate by age.

All of my kids enjoyed the AO on Freedom last October. The kids were always doing something when we dropped ours off or picked them up, although I'm sure they're were down times - we just seemed to...

We cruised over Halloween on Freedom last year and I remember they had a scavenger hunt with candy at each station for the kids. If they offer costumes onboard, I'm not aware of it. We had planned...

Thanks for posting. We'll be in Indy in December, and although we've cruised on Freedom and know most things will be the same, it's still nice to see.

We've only taken our kids on one cruise, but all six of them absolutely loved
It. We're booked again this coming December & they're crazy excited already. I did worry about some of the smaller...
Anyone got any good tips for Adventure Ocean on Freedom of the Seas?
We just took our 3 & 5 yo on their first cruise this past October. They loved the kids club. We had a late seating time since it was all that was available & they were fine. Our waitstaff were so...

My oldest girls were 2 months out from turning 15 on our cruise last October. They didn't split the teens up that week since there weren't many on board, but I'm not sure that would be the case in...

We preferred the water cabanas since we had kids with us who wanted to swim the entire time. We were lucky since our cabana was the first one, so the kids could play in the shallow water & we were...

So sad to hear this. We did the breakfast on our cruise last October and my 3 & 5yo loved it, however it's certainly not worth the money for us to do it again. The food was nothing special & the...
