Review Summary

This was a nice cruise for the $$. We booked last minute and received a great deal.I would not pay more than $600 for this cruise if I had to book in advance. The shipboard activities were cheesy and not that interesting. There weren't any supportive services for infants age 7 months or babysitting and most of the excursions were not infant friendly. The buffet food was not that great, the only dining worth attending was main dining.

There was entertainment every day and the times were good, two a night for both sets of diners. Quality, showmanship was lacking. The best acts on board were the late night adult comedy shows. the production shows were a step above a high school performance.

Children's Programs
