This was a first time cruise experience for my 10 year old son. He had a wonderful time. It was a short cruise only 4 days and we only visited one port so it gave him the cruising experience. I would have liked to see more activities on board for his age group. I had registered him for the kid's camp for the 9 to 11 year olds but nothing that was scheduled for that age group appealed to him. He wanted to participate in the video gaming sessions of the older groups. The bottomless bubbles program was excellent for him - he enjoyed the constant refills of sodas aboard the ship. Perhaps you all could consider expanding the arcade and offering a similar program, for a set price you can play video games for the cruise. Overall it was a great experience. The dining staff were excellent. The dinners were great..the buffets were ok.

Pros: the service on the ship

Cons: the amount of activities

need more creative activities. The only appealing activities of course cost additional money

the shopping at the pier was great and the playa mia excursion was a great affordable way to participate in water activities and relax without having to pay a lot of money
