Not that we have any kids but we did this exact cruise at the end of March in 2006 and there were about 10 kids on the whole ship and I would say there was little or nothing for them to do. If your cruise includes Easter Hols then there will be more kids but there are no real facilities for kids = if they are aged over 9 or 10 then there is effectively nothing = upto that age then it is the usual face painting etc - I would not recommend this ship ( or and Thomson or Island Ships either ) for children at all as others offer far more.
