Review Summaryi really needed this vacation! there were only a couple of things that ticked me off, but i thought they were big. after giving the purser a substantial amount of cash money (more than i could have reasonably spent on board) i was refused a couple of hundred dollars to spend off ship. i was not informed of this policy, and never experienced it before on any other of my 13 cruises.
Ports of Call
Pros: the interior cabin overlooking the "mall" was wonderful. if you're traveling with kids, get one of these. it gives them something other than water to look at while you're busy. i was surprised that it really wasn't noisy, but for occasional music for short periods.
Cons: i felt nickled and dimed. there was a $2.24 charge for soda in the dining room, and the food just wasn't all that good. i really hated having the same breakfast and lunch menu for an entire week. that was boring! and watch out for additional charges by the kids' club!
