Review SummaryThis was our first cruise. We had an interior state room with a 2 yr old but there was enough room as long as you stayed organized. The food was great. We were told the only dining time was 8:30 when we booked. We tried to switch to earlier but didn't want the hassle. With a 2 yr old, dinning wasn't the best option anyway. There is a buffet and it was great every time. The pools are set up for more mature travellers and there is nothing for kids with regards to pools, but my daughter loved the hot tubs. We never saw much of the entertainemnt as we were in our state room by 8 each night.
