The pools and hot tubs were great with the kids but we enjoyed the adults only pool and hot tub even more.

Our 2 younger kids loved going to their clubs every night after dinner. That was such a relief for my husband and I. We were able to enjoy ourselves knowing the kids were having fun too.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
This was some of the best service I have ever experienced. There are a few members I want to mention here that made quite an impression on us. Amar was great every morning at the buffet for breakfast walking around pouring cups of coffee and just sharing stories with us. We always seem to find him and he always seemed to find us. He as so nice and would go out of his way to make sure we were happy. When we we go to the restaurant for dinner I was excited to find when we would have Artika as our waiter. We had him on 2 separate nights and he was amazing. He remembered everyone’s name and even our drinks. For me that is amazing considering all the people he served everyday. We came across Michael while purchasing photos and he spoke Spanish just like my husband. All though they were from different countries they made that connection and it was great have conversation with someone in your native language. Our steward was awesome too. I wish I remembered his name so I can mention it was he made our room great every day. And of course Eversen, the best cruise director ever! It was our daughters birthday after the cruise had ended but we were able to get him to sing happy birthday to her on video and play it for her on her birthday. Her face was priceless and that was so amazing that he even did that for her. Every crew member we came across was great.
