Am considering a cruise early summer (possibly end of April).
Would like one aimed at DS, as DH and I will be happy just to be away.
DS will be three and a half-ish.

I have seen some have amazing water slides etc, so this would be a key wish for us.
Also seen one with dodgems! He loves driving, so either this, or if there is one with go-karts or little cars, that would be great.
I'd like one that has a really good softplay area.

What else should I be looking for? What are the top features various ships offer for this age?

We are not interested in leaving him at some kids' club, so that's of zero interest to us.

Would like to go somewhere like the Caribbean so the stop-offs are nice sandy beaches, with warms sea for toddler splashing.

Any top sites to recommend where I can actually compare ships side by side? I have been trawling through cruise sites for a while, but they are vast and the research is taking ages. I'd like to see at an easy glance which ships offer what!

Any other tips welcome! Thanks.

Disney cruise. ... Amazing holiday with great kids club.

I second Disney Cruise line - the kids club (Oceaneers Club for 3 years +) is amazing and if you go on one of the newer ships they have a water coaster. All of the ships in the fleet (4) have water slides.
It's pricey but worth every penny IMO.
