Review summary

I took the crew with my wife and two daughters and in general it was a fine experience. The interior room for four adults was some what crowded but the room was clean and the beds were made twice a day. Staff are very friendly and always availalbe for help - they call you by your name from the first day. My daughter did not like the food and lost about 5 lbs in five days but for the rest of us it was okay. The cruise allow to board with limited quantity of alcohol and we brought some wine in our luggage. They did not allow it to our cabin and said we should have hand carried when checking in. It was disappointing they were not flexibile when we told them we did not know about it. The adult only comedy shows with Lance and Billy were halarious.
