Review SummaryWe have cruised many times, many lines with our children 3-21 years old. This ship was overall very beautiful and good. The ship is huge but you never felt like you were crowded. The pools are a wonderful size to really accomadate a family who wants to hang out together. Many other lines have small family pools which makes that really hard. The only downside was the food and staff. The food was mass produced, always looked pretty but never really tasted good. The staff overall besides the wait staff was overall unfriendly and had no problem using guests bathrooms and smoking on the decks. They definitly didn't make you feel pampered or special like on other ships. Something I sure want for the money. I'd do it again for a special rate or a quick get away though, not for my big cruise or long awaited vacation.
Ports Of Call
Pros: Pools larger then most ships
Cons: Food was mass produced and tasteless
