Review summary

Relaxing it was great, the ship was nice. The balcony was wonderful and our steward kept our room very clean when our kids weren't being messy. The steak house restaurant was nice and a good date night for us.

My wife and I enjoyed them all. I'm not a big musical fan but I can say I actually liked them. The live music had us singing and dancing and I'm not a singer or dancer, lol. The whole experience was an awesome experience.

Children's Programs

Even though my daughter stayed there one day before she ditched Circle C and ran with her new friends, I think she liked the fact that I made her go in hand.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
My room steward for 6315 was amazing. He was available when and if we needed him. I'm not great with names but he remembered mine, which is sad because he has to remember a lot more names than I do. He also remembered my birthday and surprised me with a free coupon. As for the waiters and ship personnel, they made my first cruise experience a memorable one.
