Overall we had a wonderful vacation. This was our fourth cruise with our children and they had a great time! Ages 5 and 9 tthe endless activities kept them very busy. My 5 year old loved the kids pool with the water slide and the golf course. My 9 year old really enjoyed the kids club as well as the shopping seminar and coupon book witch kept her busy on every island. My husband and I loved the conciege lounge and the 1st class dining at the special resturants(well worth the extra charge). Entertainment was fun, some of the shows kept us laughing for days. If you expect goumet dining or 24/7 first class service this cruise will not meet your standards, but if you want to meet nice people and have a good time with your whole family this is for you.
