Review Summary

overall our entire family enjoyed the cruise very much. The rooms were great, the food excellent, the staff all extremely accommodating. There are however some suggestions for improvement - separate food stations during the buffet for faster service and shorter lines. eg; a salad station separate from entrees. Have servers serve the different foods so that people can move more quickly. Babysitting services during dinner hours. We had an 18month old who didn't appreciate sitting at dinner; all of our guests would have benefited from a babysitting service during dinner hours.

too many children (unaccompanied by an adult) in the hot tubs at all times. They were diving, running in the tub, swimming in the hot tub etc. There was no one to reprimand them or keep them out unless with a parent or guardian. Ditto with the pools; too much horseplay with no supervision.
