Family Cruise

Sail Date: December 15, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

First time ever taking family on cruise. There was a total of 15 people in our group and 5 different cabins. Ports of call were not really family friendly and just to go to the beach for 1/2 a day for our family was almost $1,000. My wife and I stayed on the 12th floor in the NEW spa floor and the rooms are smaller than the older below balcony rooms and only 2 elevators go to this floor. Would not recommend staying on this floor due to the elevator issue and too easy of access from the general public to the rooms. Need to install some type of security for these floors. Boat was recently renovated but not real friendly. Our family with small kids had to walk through the smokey Casino to get to and from and we did not appreciate that. Overall it was a good experience but next cruise is back to just me and the wife and let the family cruise on their own.

Guys burgers were the best. Shame they have to charge for the Italian and Japenese food at night, avoid.
