I think this was a good first cruise for the kids. The rooms were clean and the staff was great.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Evening dining wasn't as good as expected. Like the several choices. Buffet was always good and so was breakfast.


3 out of 5
Could have had more activities around the pool area for all to enjoy. Music would have been better if there was a variety.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Good idea for kids to meet others. Didn't like the breakdown of younger ages. My 11 year old has 3 older brothers and thought the things for her age group were a little too young.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Most everyone was friendly. Loved our waiter at the evening dining!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Size was good for young kids, bigger for older kids would have been better, it was clean, decorated nicely and easy to get around1

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Stateroom very clean and staff was good

Pros: Organization of the trip

Cons: Dining Room food not as good as expected
