We just got home from our cruise. It was my husbands first cruise and my second. We also brought along our 4 year old. We stayed in a Grand Suite. The space was awesome! We were thankful to have a nice room because we were in it a lot. Our son got sick so we ended up staying in a lot. Our room was clean and we were very well taken care of! Our son enjoyed Camp Carnival and we were impressed with the activities they offered. All of the Dr. Seuss activities we great!  We never had a bad meal. We ate in the dining room and on the Lido deck. We really enjoyed the Mongolian Wok and I was impressed with the gluten free pizza. There were always lots of options for people having to watch what they eat for various reasons. The staff in the Celebration dining room were great with us! The staff in Window's of the Sea were not as helpful. The cons for this trip really couldn't be helped. The weather was never really warm enough to swim (unless you were a fearless child!). The Bahamas were having a cold front so it was a little chilly when getting off the boat. Freeport is not a fun port so make sure you have something planned to do. There is very little to do without catching a taxi.

We didn't do much besides the Dr. Seuss activities and the game show but both were very well done. We also enjoyed the bands and singers on the Atrium and the promenade as we were passing through.

Ship Tip

The line for debarkation in Charleston started about 6:30 in the morning but we were off the boat and on the road by 7:30!
