7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 30, 2008

Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Family (young children)

The ship was very clean and well decorated. The staff was continuously giving out sanitation wipes to all the guests to ensure cleanliness. VERY IMPRESSIVE!!!

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
There was a good selection each night. The quality was OK. The service was excellent.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
We were a little dissapointed with the times available for the ice skating and inline skating arenas. The rock climbing wall also had limited times available to enjoy.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
The staff was excellent. The kids club however should not close during the day @ all. The mid day closings made it difficult to schedule spa appointments.

We had an Owner's Suite. It was spacious and well maintained. Our cabin was close to dining and kid's activities which was great.

The beach and kids park was nice. The pushy sales people for trinkets was over the top

This port was difficult to get out of. It was a small shopping area which was average.
Don't Miss: Kids got their hair braided.... They loved it.

Dunns River Falls is a must see!!! The natives however were about as pushy as you can get. One went as far as giving my kids a wooden turtle and said to my 8 yr. old it was free. Then turned to me and insited I give him $20.00. To make a long story short, he didn't get the $20.00.... This made the trip to the falls something to talk about other than the falls.
