Great for people traveling with children. However, adult specific events were carved out. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent photgraphers. No wait time in line for food or gift sshops. basic toiletries provided (toothpaste, shampoo, body wash) great for people doing carry on. Nice entertainment on the lido deck thoughout the day. Extended hours at Camp Carnival for nominal rate.
