The review process would not allow me to select April so I selected October. We really went during Spring Break and took our kids, ages 8 and 10. We had 2 interior cabins next to each other and for the amount of time we spent inside, they were plenty big enough.
We rarely seen the kids, except at meal times because they were off at Camp Carnival hanging out with their new traveling buddies. We'd check on them throughout the day, but if they were having fun, a visual was good confirmation. They were within the same age group so they could do the same activities. The staff did a wonderful job keeping the kids busy & having FUN!
The food was good and it was nice to get a family picture of us in our finery on elegant evening. We tried foods we normally wouldn't and ate more than we should've. The kids had ice cream at mid-night and we snacked on shrimp.
We went to Nassau and walked around while the kids had an on board scavenger hunt. It was enjoyable to see the different shops, buy a few cheesy souvenirs and have a strong adult beverage.
No complaints. Vacation is all about going with the flow & making the best of every situation.

Bring water shoes for the deck areas & saddle up to the deck railing early so you can do the traditional 'see ya later Miami' wave to all the land bound people.
