A Dad & Lad's excellent adventure

Sail Date: August 05, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

I am a first time cruiser and many specifics are taken care of for you. There is much information to go through and can be daunting at times. The daily itinerary was excellent but the announcements were very hard to hear or understand. There are so many floors and things to do that remembering where everything is was a task in itself. There was always a new corner of the ship that we found it seems every day. The food was delicious and very abundant. The drinks were a bit pricey and should be adjusted down a bit. I definitely skipped buying over 6 dollar beers. The sailing was smooth and basically could rock you to sleep. I would recommend a room with a view because of the ability to wake up to an ocean view was tremendous.

Pros: Many activities throughout the day

Cons: Swimming pool was itty bitty
