Cruising with a toddler

We'd like to go on a family cruise in the second half of May: myself, my husband, Baby J and my parents. What will this be like? And also, got any specific recommendations?

Baby J will be 18 months old, and organized cruise activities for kids start for 3-year-olds and up. No problem, there are enough adults to hang with Junior at any given time while the others go off and do other stuff. Other than spending a lot of time at the pool, though, what can he be doing? Will we have to bring food for him? Will the sleep schedule go out the window? Argh. We have never travelled with him and I have no idea what to expect.
We're thinking of flying to LA from Vancouver and doing a 7-day Mexican Riviera cruise, but anything along the Pacific coast merits consideration. My parents have already done Alaska and would consider doing it again, but we're concerned that May might still be a little cold.
Any suggestions and tips that AskMeFites have will be much appreciated!
