When booking this cruise for our family we did not realize and were not told that it was a "College Spring Break" cruise.  Unfortunately my 13 year old son was never able to swim in the pool and my husband and I were not able to enjoy the casino.  The crew was not able to control these kids and the drinking, running through halls naked and partying was enough to make me want to jump overboard. We had planned this trip for so long and it was our first "family" cruise and was so incredibly disappointing.  I couldn't wait until it was over !!!!!Angry
