Never again

Sail Date: July 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

My family and I went on this cruise ship and there was absolutely nothing to do. The kids did not have any activities that they could get into, the buffet was closed most of the time, and there weren't any shows. The pool was small and closed for part of the trip and there was not anything else to do on the cruise ship. The weather was poor when we went, so the outer deck was actually closed, so the only thing left to do was sit in the room because the buffet was closed also. I will never cruise on this cruiseline again. Horrible time.

Pros: The bedding

Cons: Everything
