Good Family Holiday

Sail Date: November 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

Overall we enjoyed the trip and it is an excellent way for everyone to enjoy different things and still be together. As always dinner is the highlight and we had a great table. We enjoyed the sit down breakfast best. A few of the shows were outstanding and the Ice Show was well worth seeing. We also enjoyed Ellington's jazz bar and a few of the Prominade bars were you could meet people and people watch. I would have preferred to go to Puerto Vallerta first and Cabo last as we would have enjoyed Cabo far more that way.
Our main complaint was that we booked together and were put on different floors and different ends of the ship. This was extremely difficult as we traveled from Spain for this holiday and the kids from Las Vegas so we could be together. Our 3 year old grandson was disapointed as he likes moving back and forth between his parents and grandparents room. Also at nap time and sleep time it was not convienant.

But I would do another cruise.

Pros: The ship, The crew, Dinner together, The prominade, something for every age group, the shows

Cons: We booked together and were put on different floor and at different ends of the ship.
