I think the common denominator here would be the $2,500; especially after you've already experienced the Voyager class ships. I think the kids would miss the ice show, and perhaps the Promenade, but they aren't paying for the cruise; you are. The difference in the amount of money can pay for a lot of excursions. Or, the money saved could be but toward another cruise. They should just be happy that they're getting to go on a cruise!
