Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

This ship is beautiful! we felt crowded only at the elevators after the shows... food was not too great, (we did not try specialty restaurants)
shows were the best we've seen! and service was mediocre, specially in the restaurant where my husband found a piece of plastic in his fish, and the head waiter told him its from the fish wrapper without even apologizing, and he was just a jerk all week..
our stateroom was a family oceanview. great room! plenty of storage for all 5 of us. and enough room for a stroller and a pack and play.
The kids club was fun for the kids. The hours are 9-12, 2-5, and 7-10. they have breaks for lunch and dinner. you can even leave them during those hours for free, but they just take them to eat. After 10pm, the charge is 6 dollars an hour.
what is different about this cruise is that they babysit babies ages 6 months to 3 years for 8 dollars an hour. this was never an option for us on any other cruise. we used this service for two hours to go watch an adult only comedy show.
they were great with our baby! even changed her diaper, and they give you a phone, just in case....
