Good Cruise, some flaws.

Sail Date: May 03, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

This was our first ever cruise, the total atmosphere of the ship seemed a bit dated almost like a 50's diner feel. Our room was extremely cold, we were in Cabin 9274.. This was a NOISY area. We have a child and had I known that the music from the Atrium Lobby traveled up that far I would've booked a different room. Kept hearing the elevator ding all hours of the night with drunk people screaming in the hallways.  Staff was extremely friendly, everyone of them! Pool was filled with kids it was not very big, parents do not watch them in the whirlpool, got kicked in the face and legs with kids trying to swim in it. Adult retreat was always full during Sea Day.
