Not a KIDS friendly Ship

Sail Date: July 23, 2016

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

I contacted several times before booking the cruise, I stated that I need kids friendly ship everytime and I also stated that I like to visit Kennedy Space Center before the cruise. 


Overall cruise was fine, it was a party ship not a kids/family oriented ship, did not meet our needs, plus Kennedy Space Center was two hours drive from Tampa, agent should have recommended another ship from Port Canaveral 


Kids were not happy, therefore overall experience was very poor
