Review SummaryThis was our first family cruise trip and we were blown away. We had a wonderful
time. From the time we stepped into the terminal to prepare getting onto the ship, to
staying on board for our trip to getting off the ship. It is amazing that everything is so
together and organized. We enjoyed the trip so much. The ship was so clean and
has so many warm smiles from your crew. We will for sure try hard to save enough
money up so that we can take another cruise as a family before our children leave home and go off to college. We decided that this is a much better vacation than any other we
have ever taken. Just being together but still having some space away from each other.
The activities were wonderful. However, I do think someway/somehow you should
have a way to attrack the younger 13-17 years old to go try out their age group thing.
My children looked in and saw kids that looked lots younger than them and did not want
to go, they didn't go. I think if there was something given to them before hand and
really inviting, they might have tried it. This is a tough age, they are still kids but feel
more grown up then they really are.
The dancing was great, the group put on wonderful shows. We especially liked the
break dancers and wished they had put on more of a show. What talent these young
I wouldn't think twice about getting back onto your ship for another wonderful trip.
You all did a great job.
Food and Dining
always like. The only thing I wished was that the ice carving could have been at two
different times. I really wanted my kids to see this, but some how we missed it.
More comedy for younger groups would be great, not just for adults. Some of us like
good clean comedy, that way the family can share in this together.
Service and Staff
were great. They were so friendly and made sure we were happy with all that we had.
They did all they could to make us feel good. They did not miss a beat. They seemed to work together so good.
younger boys used the womens bathroom and the mother didn't clean after them. I sure
don't blame the staff on your ship. But it is never good to go to the bathroom and find that.
Cabin / Stateroom
had a dirty room or never had to ask for anything. He was more than just doing his job,
he was caring and always with a smile. I think he should be patted on the back or something better. What a great worker.
Ports of Call
Pros: Our room was "always" tip top
Cons: Needed more for 13-16 years old to go together, making more inviting for them.
