We took 6 children on this cruise, as we are avid cruisers and wanted something reasonable to kick-off summer. Unfortunately, the activities for kids were lackluster, and even as adults we found the offerings to be very limited. The ship itself is very outdated....even our suite was reminder of something from the 80's. There was no sliding door to get out onto the balcony. Rather, there was a huge, heavy wooden door that wouay open for us to enjoy the ocean breeze.
There were plenty of drunk people and aboard this ship - most likely because there wasn't much else to do. The food offerings never changed and were extremely poor. Nothing healthy to be found, and the salad bar was oftentimes empty of both lettuce and dressings.
