The cruise over all was ok. I have been on smaller ships and have had a better time.

There were not a lot of stuff for younger than 3 kids to do. They did have a small kids pool area. But the pool area was slippery, and the paint on the pineapple slide was peeling off.

The food was ok. I have been on the Dawn and the food was excellent. The unpaid resturants the service was terrible and there was a huge language barrier. In most places the food you got was like warm and not hot. The paid resturants the service was much better. Cagneys steak house the food was not good at all, and did not measure up to steak house food. We got the best food in the pub, noodle bar, savor, an garden cafe.

These resturants were not accommodating for my 20 month old daughter. They would not make anything differnt than what was on the menus. The only place she could eat was the pub because they would make her grilled cheese, plain chicken, and steamed broccoli. We also ha to wait in the dining rooms sometimes over 20 minutes for a high chair.

The needed one more pool because the adult pool was too small for all the people on the ship. If you did not get out by 7am and puts towels out all the chairs were taken. There water slides were a nice ouch to the ship for the older kids and adults.

They had a play room for kids under 3. The room was dirty. All the room was, was toys thrown all over a floor with padding. It was hard to get to the room also cause it was on 16 and only 3 elevators on the ship went to 16.

The shows were nice. Rock of ages was great, the improv comedy show was not so great, cirqu de sule show was excellent and well worth the money, and the pajama jam was terrible all it was, was a way for the ship to make money by you kid waiting in 6 differnt line to take pai pictures with the characters.

New York, New York Did not visit port

The non ship staff was so rude when getting off the ship. The customs people were rude and the dock staff was terrible. The dock staff was swearing and yelling at one another. Someone told the people behind us to pay the f*** attention and get out of New York. I will never travel out of a New York port again.
