Review SummaryThis was our first cruise as a family. My husband and I both had been on a cruise previously but that was about 20 years ago and we were much younger and not together yet. We have two children a son 10 and a daughter 12. My son loved the childrens room but mainly b/c they had a computer and video games. My daughter went to the "teen" meeting once but was not overly thrilled with it. There was a lot of college age kids it seemed drinking a lot, etc. So to me it seemed more of a party atmosphere than a family atmosphere. The service on the ship was outstanding and the food was wonderful. In the BAhamas we opted to go to Atlantis thinking that would be great for the family to do. We only had from 12:30 and the last bus back to the ship was at 5:30 after that you had to take a taxi. All the shops close at 5:30 in Bahamas so we decided to head back around 4:30 in order to buy some souveniors. So really four hours at Atlantis was not really enough time at all. We did thoroughly enjoy our time in Cococay the next day. I think I woudl've been fine just going there.

Don't Miss: The beach of course.
Pros: I liked our dining room experience the best - and Cococay!
Cons: I think this cruise was more for younger people (college age).
