Just okay

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The cruise was okay. There needs to be a kiddie pool. Being a Celiac, eating was difficult except for the dinners. There were three of us in one family with gluten issues so it was frustrating.  It was clean. Entertainment was NOT family friendly. Lots of profanity and vulgarity in dancing. Maybe the world is okay with that but my family is not.  Other cruises I have been on have never had such rank entertainment.

Cabin / Stateroom
Loved the lay out with the 2 extra beds. Plenty of room!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Average ship for that class. Clean.
Destinations and Excursions
it's what we could afford.
Onboard Activities
My teenagers thought the clubs were lame.
Children's Programs
Teens thought the programs were lame. Times it was open didn't make much sense either.
Vulgar and rank. Other cruises we have been on did not have such language or rank shows. I expected more from a cruise line that 'caters' to families.
Service and Staff
The people who could understand that we were gluten free were very helpful.
Food and Dining
Please label gluten free foods. It would make it so much easier!
Jacksonville, Florida
Take time to go south on the beach.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Real shopping is too far to walk and costs a taxi ride.
Nassau, Bahamas
Avoid the Paranas that try to get you to take their services.
