Review SummaryThis was my fist time on a cruise and was somewhat disappointed. I have two teenage boys, 14 & 17. There was not a lot for them to do in the evening. They were not able to get into the disco and since they are not into sports there were not options for them. A movie night or casino night for teens would have helped. Also communications with kids was very hard if they were not with us.
The breakfast food was not too good either. Dinner was nice but that was about it. The afternoon activities while the ship was docked was missed by those who were off the ship. The beach party food could have lasted a little while longer for those reboarding the ship, especially for the ones who had a late dinner time.
The staff was fantastic. Our dinner waiter was very friendly and accommadating.
I would not recommend this cruise for people who have teenage kids. For adults it was nice.
