The great getaway cruise!

Sail Date: April 09, 2006

Reviewed: 11 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is elegantly decorated with beautiful marble and granite throughout.

Pros: The kids programs!

Cons: Slow formal dinner service. (it took 2 hours to eat dinner)

Food and Dining
The Italian Pizza and Pasta's were Exceptional! The breakfast buffet lacked daily selection. After day three, I felt like I was eating the same foods over and over again. The sit down dinners took around two hours to complete. We did not partake in the sit down Breakfast and lunch.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a window room. Basic and clean ammenities as expected. Mattress was terrible. Service was excellent.
Service and Staff
Many of the ships staff did not speak english.
Ship Quality
Nicer than the other cruises I've been on.
The live shows surpassed my expectations and the kids (7 and 4) loved them.
Children's Programs
The kids program was far superior than other cruises I've been on. The "Squack" staff genuinely cared about the children and the curriculum was very engaging.
