Children's Programs

1 out of 5
as stated the program on paper is wonderful however you need someone to run the program and not be babysitter for teens. This trip my 23 teens were not happy which effected my husband and my trip/ The 9-11 yrs old seemed to be doing the program and kids had fun. Does NOT OPerate which ship is in port!! Royal Caribean is better for my kids and me.

5 out of 5
The ship had arrangements for you to sit on shore at a pool place was GREAT!!!
Don't Miss: pool activites at Jimmy Buffet rest.

Pros: I haven't sailed on this line for 16 years but cruise yearly. The service was excellent as the food and show

Cons: If you have teens take Royal caribean. This line has a great program on paper however the poeple who run the teen program was a babysitter and di not do anythings that were suppose to run for teens(games) the room was open to play video games . The program is only as good as the people who run it. D
