This was my family's first cruise, and although we had fun, we thought that it could have been better. We were disappointed to find out that breakfast was stopped by 10:30 (some days earlier) and that lunch was only from 12 - 2. Being on vacation, we thought that breakfast should have "run into" lunch with breakfast items being replaced by lunch items as lunch time drew nearer. Because of the times, we were never able to sleep late. We also wished that there was a place on the ship to grab a snack (popcorn, pretzels, etc.) when you just wanted something light between meals. It was also difficult having an hour break between the early dinner seating and the evening show. Not enough time to go back to your cabin and relax, but enough time to become bored while waiting. My children, ages 10 and 13, enjoyed the kids' programs, but we found the ever changing schedules annoying. One day the groups would have lunch, the next day you had to take your child to lunch. The staff also didn't seem to take much personal interest in the kids, often letting them run the wild on the ship.
