Review Summary

The Cruise was nice and relaxing, but besides the kids club and the arcade, there was nothing for kids to do when it was rainy or windy. And we had two full cruising days on the boat with bad weather. The indoor pool was for adults only. They should have allowed the kids to use it in bad weather for designated hours. I have heard larger ships have more activities and areas for kids, just be aware.There was plenty for adults to do at all times. But the average age on our cruise was probably 65 years old.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The soups and salads were excellent, but any seafood dishes had very small portions of seafood with a lot of other filler foods on the plate. For instance the scallops in pasta were so small they were almost pea sized and there was only about 6 of them in a large bowl of pasta.

need more family activities, not just bingo and casino tournaments and dance parties

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
The kids club was excellent but only a tiny area of the ship. My son got bored there after only an hour, each time he was there. There is only so much you can do in a small room for each age group. I can't imagine if there was a lot of kids. this cruise there was only 20. The week before they had 400 and 800 kids the week before that. The kids club could only accommodate about 10 from each age group at a time, and that was pushing it.
