A wonderful birthday cruise

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Let me start by saying I had a hard time finding a con to write about. We were cruising with my 3 year old grand daughter and it was her first cruise as well as her birthday,[she turned 4 on the cruise].I was very impressed with the children services, she never wanted to leave, they kept her entertained in a learning enviroment. Of course the food was great,all of the staff that I encountered were polite and took the time to speak. We have never laughted so much as we did at some of the antics presented cy the cruise director.
We were in a ocean view room, which accomadated the three of us with no difficulity.I would take this cruise againand would recommend it to my friends. Thank You RCC
