We will be going in our first cruise next month. It's me, my 6 and 9 year old boys, and bringing Grandma along for help 🙂 I chose Royal's Symphony of the Seas - it seemed like the best mix of activities for kids, things I wanted, and itinerary (which was really the least important since we've never been before). With the Kids Sail Free promo, the 7 night cruise was actually less expensive than on a slightly older ship (Harmony) OR on Carnival or Norwegian. Disney is just out of our price range, period. Good luck - the research will drive you crazy!
