Suite Life on Deck is a TV show for kids on Disney Channel. It is a spin off of the Disney Channel show Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Like it's predecessor, the show features twins Zack and Cody played by real life twins Dylan and Cole Sprouse.
Suite Life on Deck
Zack and Cody are older now and now live aboard a cruise ship called the SS Tipton. Like the hotel where Zack and Cody lived before, the SS Tipton is owned by London Tipton's father. Mr. Moseby runs much of the customer service aboard the ship and is the fourth major character from the original show. The kids attend a school on the ship and are joined by new friends Bailey, Woody, and Marcus.
Zack and Cody are the stars and specialize in getting into some kind of mischief. Generally Zack is the cause, while the brainy Cody gets caught up in Zack's schemes. Many episodes involve guest appearances from the earlier show like Maddie (Ashley Tisdale) and Arwin (Brian Stepanek). Also, stars from other Disney Channel shows appear including Hannah Montana (Miley Cyrus) and Alex Russo (Selena Gomez). In later episodes Bailey and Cody's crush become a major theme.

Suite Life on Deck is a good kid's show. It's not our favorite show on Disney Channel (see Phineas and Ferb and Wizards of Waverly Place), but kids seem to really enjoy it (it placed 2nd on a recent Ducksters poll of TV shows). The acting is average and the comedy is definitely targeted to kids. So we don't imagine a lot of adults enjoying this show, but….who cares? It is a show for kids after all. It may not be appropriate for some younger kids as there are boyfriend/girlfriend situations. It's more mature than the original show Suite Life of Zack and Cody.
