A good time was had by all!!!

Sail Date: April 09, 2006

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was very nice and well-kept. The staff were pretty friendly and helpful. The room was a nice size for a family of 4. The food and wait staff were excellent. The ports of call were quite nice as well. We vacationed with friends and everyone seemed to have fun. I think the kids club should have an age bracket of 10-14 so that the activities were more age-appropriate. Overall, a great trip.

Pros: Really liked the ports of call, the food and the great cabin!

Cons: The shows were really lacking in entertainment

The shows were poor. They seemed to be thrown together at the last minute. Many cruises that I've been on had great Vegas style shows with singing and dancing, or a magician or hypnotist. This cruise had half-hearted shows, some which were very inappropriate for children to attend.

Wish we had arrived earlier in the day and had more time to see the rainforest.
Don't Miss: The fort
Casa De Campo, Dominican Republic
Didn't go to the candela show, but the village it was in was pretty dull. Not much else to do there considering the few hours we had and arriving at night.If you didn't go to the show, there was really nothing to do.
Nassau, Bahamas
Had a great taxi driver that took us to a resort(Wyndham) where you could use the beach and pool with no charge. Thought the other tours were pretty pricey. Toured on our own and saved a lot of money.
Catalina Island (Isla Catalina), Dominican Republic
Would like to see more organized adult activities, like volleyball or horseshoes, etc
Don't Miss: Just relax and enjoy the day!!!
