Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

-Dining Staff and Room Steward
-Guest Services Staff
-Food Quality

-Total "frosted" glass bathroom. NO PRIVACY. Everyone can hear a bowel movement. Occupant in shower can be seen!!!!
-Horrible kids programming (mine: 9 1nd 11 years old). Long, long waiting lines to sign in (even after they were registered). Very disorganized. My kids stated that they felt that they were being punished. Loved both RCL and Disney's programs!
-The entire ship is constructed as if it were built in the 70's - dark brown paneling throughout, no real atrium (just a small 2-story area).
-Disastrous elevator service. This ship holds 4,000 passengers - and there are NO mid-ship elevators. Long waits to go anywhere on the elevators!!!!

I would NEVER recommend this ship to anyone travelling with a family. Lots of $$ spent for a "hotel" in the water, not a cruise liner.

Book your excursions after you leave the ship: you will save a lot of money. An example would be Atlantis Waterpark. Onboard: Adult $159, Child $119. At Atlantis: Adult $129, Child $80.
