As our 1st experience on a cruise it was ok. We have 4 children and always try to plan something special for their spring break.  As this was a little pricy option it was something different and gave us time to pay out.  We had a good time but there were some disappointments. We were excited to go to Belize and that did not get to happen because the ship could not port do to high winds. It would have been nice to be compensated for that other then the $16.25 in taxes to use in a future cruise. We changed our cruise from royal Caribbean to carnival freedom because it was going to Belize and then we didn't get to go and all we pretty much got was a sorry. There could have also been more live shows and change up food options on the buffets. Could have been a much better experience but we still had some fun.
