Shows were nice and exciting enough to keep a 7yr old interested. Magic show was not interesting to young it was commical enough for his parents.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Kids did not want to leave when we arrived to pick them up. Activities were diverse and active enough for all ages. The staff was great.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff introduced themselves as we arrived to cabin or for dinner. Staff was very friendly and willing to make 0ur cruise experience a good one.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Staff was always around to keep ship tidy. Walkways and stairs were consistly vacummed. Tables were kept clear or were cleared quickly after the party left to make room for new arrivals to the buffet.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The beds carnival has used for staterooms are excellent. Down comforters and new linens are a very nice touch. I slept like a baby!

Dunns River Falls is beautiful, but the tourist trap afterwards is awful! Locals would offer beads to kids free then start craving names of figures and not take no as an answer.....dont stop to talk

Pirate encounter was great. Description did not mention the opportunity of "walking the plank" and swiming in the beautiful waters of Grand wear bathing suits

Pros: activities

Cons: express disembarkment
