He went each night for Adventure Dining (5-7pm). We dropped him off at the room before 5 pm and they took the kids up to the Windjammer Buffet and served pizza, chicken nuggets, and french fries. While repetitive, this works for MOST kids. It worked for him until the final night when he said: "I don't want to eat the same thing again!"
From 7 pm-10 pm he attended the evening sessions back in the Aquanauts room with organized activities. If you check out my other post about Adventure Ocean, I have scanned and posted each day's events for all Adventure Ocean groups. Not just Aquanauts. He had a lot of fun. They had everything from Circus school, face painting, hero capes, science experiments, art projects and more.
Royal Babies & Tots
We've used the nursery onboard a few other Royal Caribbean and Disney cruises in the past. On this trip, I wasn't overly impressed, but they kept the kids safe and happy. That's the main point. Is it the ideal environment I would want my kid in back home for daycare? No. They seemed to be overwhelmed with the number of kids. They maxed out at eight babies at a time, but when four cried at once, I can understand the challenge. There were a few extreme criers that did make it challenging for the nursery workers. We saw a lot of the babies in their strollers in front of the TV while the women were tending to the kids who needed attention.
My younger son went nightly, so he was always asleep 30 minutes after dropping him off. They kept him in his stroller for sleeping, which made getting him back to the room a snap! On the two occasions we sent him before dinner, they had me answer questions about what he could eat, and they fed him shredded chicken, mashed potatoes, and carrots. They changed diapers, gave bottles, and did their best to ensure that each child was safe and happy. I will use the service again on our next Royal cruise (right now that's next December on the Independence)
