grandsuite not as expected, staff kept offering alcohol to teen grandson, area for 15-17 year olds never opened, the kids all met on decks and handled it themselves, room steward caught in our minibar then tried to charge us for alcohol, we don't drink and never had minibar unlocked after boarding, only had turndown service 2 nights out of 5, food was awful in dining room, found the buffet was alittle better, pool decks washed in mornings and we would get wet on our balcony while they cleaned bar and pool areas from night before, Had to be 18 or over for most entertainment on board even the shows, pool drained twice on 5 day cruise

Pros: grandsuite, balcony

Cons: food, staff
