We are not cruising/all inclusive people, but needed an affordable get away. While we will likely go back to quiet beach get aways, this cruise surpassed our expectations. Dinner was far better than expected, and they were wonderful accommodating my gluten free diet. The kids (5, 7) enjoyed golf, water park, and freedom to run around. They were not keen on kids club. My 7 year old loved the ropes course (5 too short), but my 5 year old loved the arcade. What's most notable is the staff. They were truly best in class. Genuinely friendly and caring!! We went back and forth on spending $1k for a balcony and we're not disappointed having spent the money. The carnival magic at Christmas was very nice!

The Indian fare at stern was AMAZING for ship food! Get there early for movies and expect long waits for popcorn. If choose your time dining, expect 1/2 hour or more wait for seating. Not bad, just don't wait too late for hungry kiddo's sakes.
