Review summary

This cruise was nice for us being it was out of NJ and we did not need airfare. However you loss 2-3 days of warm weather coming from the north. I would cruise this ship and port again just in September or June.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Very smooth, on the ship within an hour or so.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The food was very good. Being it was "Jersey Week" there were a lot of kids. I don't think the cruise line was ready for that. They ran out of some breakfast foods that kids eat on the last day. We did not have the drink package so we drank the free ice tea, juice and water which were good once we found them.

Jamie's Italian

This place is awesome. We waited until the last night. Wish we did it sooner because I would have went twice.

Did is a lot to do on this ship for kids in grade school and above. I have a 4 yo and he could not do anything really in the sports complex. He did no I Fly and loved it. My 7 yo daughter though tried a lot of things.

Running Track

I am not a runner however I felt bad for them. Large track but its on the main walking area around the outside of the ship. People were in their way.

It took a couple of days to get them into the club, being they didn't want to leave us. Once they got there, they loved it. My daughters 5th cruise and my sons 3rd.
