Family of 4 (16,9 daughters).  Get what you pay for and less!  

-Small club with few counselors.

-Faster to the Fun (not worth it, still chaos)

-Poor food

-Limited things for family's to do

-forced to walk through casino (smokey)

-many pics done in smokey areas

-poor service at all BARS

-bubbles program is a rip off as your child will not get served at the bars where they have to get their drinks.

-We did have a great stateroom host

-save a little more money and do a different cruise line if you have kids

-if you want to drink and gamble, this is the cruise for you

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin is at rear so you will "feel" more. room itself was ok.

Ship Tip

The pizza is good. That ended up being what we ate most of the time as dinning room food is terrible.
