Room Type: Balcony

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.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Poor planning. Embark better than disembark.
Ship Quality
everything is tight compare to other cruises we have done.
Destinations and Excursions
In my opinion, only reason to consider.
Onboard Activities
Very limited unless you are drinking and gambling.
Children's Programs
SMALL area, limited counselors, limited things to do for your child. They will not like it!
comedy club is okay but small and packed, have to stand in line over 1/2 hour if you want a seat.
Service and Staff
Stateroom host was great. Rest terrible.
Food and Dining
Pizza was okay. Thats all the positive.


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