This was our first cruise with our 3 kids, ages: 8, 6 and 2. We had a great time. 5 person cabin worked out great. 5th person is on a rollaway on the floor.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Dining room was great. Buffet was like a cafeteria. Burgers etc. on pool deck were pretty good.


5 out of 5
Made use of outdoor activites like mini golf, shuffleboard, ping pong and pools. Must be 48 inched for water slide. Small kids pool is nice and warm, great for under 5 years old. Shows were poor.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
This is why we chose this cruise and we were not disappointed. They are the only line that takes under 3. Very professional. It's not just babysitting but enriching activities. KIds enjoyed it for a few hours each day and so did we! Handled my son's food allergy with care.
