Review Summaryfirst, i would like to comment Ron from housekeeping as someone that brightened our day, every day, all day. Housekeeping as immaculate.
second, the buffet food is amazing.
the only problem is that there are many options for adults but nothing really for kids. the kids have their camp, but if i wanted to be with my kids all day, i didn't have even 1 room that i could go to and be only kids, with kids play. i could drop them at camp all day, and the camp was amazing and my kids loved it, but went to it 4 times only for 2 hrs each. all rest was up to me to entertain. the result was that they played a lot at the glass elevators. the family friendly comedy shows were wonderful for adults, but definitely not for little kids. little kids just don't really understand the humor.
in addition, the music on the lido deck was too loud. it should be enjoyable to listen but still be able to make some kind of conversation without shouting loud or moving somewhere else.
Food and Dining
the only thing is that i would love more activities for kids with the parents too. i want to enjoy my kids too in the vacation, not only dump them in camp.
