Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

I had very low expectations of the cruise but the price offered was difficult to pass. The schedule was nice, the room was spacious. The decor of the ship is horrible. The design ofthe ship is complicated and toget tosome kid friendly areas youhaveto go to the casino and all the smoke smell. The pool is too small and with just one slide the kids water entertainment is limited. My biggest issue was with the "Your time dining" that I reserved and did not get. Nobodotoldme I did not get it until I was at the ship and then the maitreD cannot accomodatemy dining time preference netither.The entrtainment was OKalthough some of the shows showedtoo much skin for a family show. Is alsokind ofboring having thesame people doing all the shows...
