I came to understand that people have different expectations when it comes to cruise. It did not meet my expectation since we only stop at each port on limited time and most of excusion is expensive. We have too boys that is age between 9 to 11. They did not want to be part of camp after tried for two hours. The top deck was closed most of the trip due to windy condition. Port Canaveral does not have much activity. At Port Nassau\, we bought excursion of dolphin activity\, it took so much time just to wait for your turn to be with dolphins\, we did not have time to explore Atlantis. We did not stop at Freeport of Bahamas due to stormy weather which is disappointment. If you don't care about Bingoes\,Trivia\,gambling or singing and dancing\, you would find yourself bored. Unless you like read or sleep or play card game to occupy long time at the sea.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food in formal dining room is nicely prepared and presented. The food at updeck is just like from the mall except the desert.

Showtime is not on every night. Some dance custume is not appropriate for younger audiance. But showtime team give a good quality performance.

Children's Programs

Not sure if they are good enough since my kids only spend few hours in one day and decided not to participate in rest of the program.
