Review summary

Much more crowded , given the ship's facilities, than I anticipated. But a nice way to travel with a cross section of different aged children. Menus in the different dining rooms were well planned and offered good choices for different "tastes." The experience of ordering off a diverse menu was a wonderful learning experience for children from the Fast Food World ! The servers were top notch and went out of their way to accommodate special requests. They were particularly good with the children....great entertainment.

The very young and the oldest groups were terrific. The "mid age" ( 9 ) needs to be revamped. The feeling was that it was too "kiddie" for them and wanted access to the X-Box type amenities.

Pool deck was overly crowded and the pools themselves were disappointing

Cabin / Stateroom

Worked perfectly for our needs. Could have had better instructions for the portable phones. As a result, we never used them ( and it sounds like they would have helped family communication. The main phone never did work. A better explanation of the conservancy of towels would have been helpful. Never understood the lack of fresh towels until the last day!

Ship tip

Figure out various locations of the different "areas" of the ship in relation to the forward, mid ship and aft elevators.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

4 out of 5
Shipboard information about various off ship facilities ( like the Space Center ) and helpful tips on how to get to them would have been easy to provide.

Nassau, Bahamas

1 out of 5
Walked around town. Not a great family venue....unless you pay through the nose for "extras." Typical island pushy, dirty tourist trap.

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)

5 out of 5
Could easily have made two stops here with a day in between, and skip Nassau!
