Well worth the money. We took 3 kids (15, 13, 10) We rarely saw our 10 year old. He was in camp, doing talent shows, making stuffed bears...Our girls went "clubbing" at night. Teen style. We checked on them several times!!! We feel a vacation is what you make of it. Go to the shows, lay by the pool, see a sunset and a sunrise. The night party on the pool deck was a blast!

Food and Dining

Eat the formal dinner every night. What a treat to let my kids try lobster for free!! Sometimes the buffet was a little bland

My son had his own personal assistant. She walked him home at night and picked him up after breakfast. He met a friend he will have for life.
