  1. Thank you everyone for your input.... much appreciated.
  2. Hi, we are looking to treat our 4 adult children + their families on a cruise. Holland America has become our go to having done over 10 cruises with them. So we are experienced cruisers. Holland America is definitely not geared up to young babies / toddlers and we have found 2-3 itineraries with RCI on Anthem that could work. I’m really looking for people to confirm that Anthem would be the way to go. We would be a large family with ages ranging from 1yr - 4yrs /mid 30's & late 50's? 10 adults & 5 babies. Any comments re the kids clubs ? I know that for under 3 parents need to stay. But generally are they good? Are they free? I know about babies in nappies/diapers not using pools but do they they have a small splash pool for babies? It’s not clear. i also noticed they have a Solarium pool which is covered. Will the older toilet trained children be able to go in? Or is it adults only? I‘m thinking that the itinerary I am considering could have inclement weather. Are they accommodating in the MDR for a) a large group 10 adults 5 babies? We would need 2-3 high chairs. Any other thoughts or insight that I can be given would be great. I don't want to book this and find it is a disaster. For my children's spouses it will be their first time cruising so I want to get it right and not put them off it for life! Thank you in advance
  3. Thank you .. yes you are confirming my thoughts.
  4. Thank you everyone for all your really helpful comments. I did think Celebrity would be an echo of HAL... which although we are well below the average age in the scheme of things we ourselves are not interested in party atmosphere! However to be fair to my adult kids and most certainly the babies I definitely want something that they will love and want more of! I knew the situation re pools and diapers.. which is fine as the 3 oldest 2 x3 1x4 are trained. the 2yr old might be .. not sure.. but the 1yr definitely won’t. RC do have on their v large ships a tiny splash zone for babies in nappies/diapers. Probably their ships + Disney the only ones. i will now focus my efforts on RC and thank you everyone for taking the time to respond. Much appreciated.
  5. Hi, we are looking to treat our 4 adult children + their families on a cruise. We have been on Celebrity once about 8 years ago and for many reasons we were disappointed. Holland America has become our go to having done over 10 cruises with them. So we are experienced cruisers. Holland America is definitely not geared up to young babies / toddlers and we have found 2-3 itineraries with Celebrity that could work. They are on the Celebrity Reflection and Silhouette which I understand are sister ships - so presumably pretty identical in facilities. I have been trawling the internet, boards and forums and I am not getting any answers. Can anyone please advise me how suitable they feel these two ships would be for a large family with ages ranging from 1yr - 4yrs /mid 30's & late 50's? Are their kids clubs good ? and suitable for those age groups? Are they free? Do they have a splash pool for babies? Are they accommodating in the MDR for a) a large group 10 adults 5 babies? Any insight that I can be given would be great. I don't want to book this and find it is a disaster. For my children's spouses it will be their first time cruising so I want to get it right and not put them off it for life! Thank you in advance
  6. Hi never cruised with DCL ... grandchildren besotted with Frozen ... I know (from research) that the Wonder has the show... but what about the characters? Do they make regular appearances on the ship? And other characters also? Thank you
