We enjoyed the cruise, but were quite taken back by the lack of parental supervision. Our children are adult teens - never would we let them run around like the kids on this cruise. We witnessed children just taking plates of food and never eating more than one bite from them. We even saw a 3 and 4 year old playing shuffleboard without a parent present......not the cruiseline fault, but next time we will definitely research to find a more adult friendly atmosphere - we felt our rights to enjoy quiet time were overruled by the kids

food quality quite good - we did not use the buffets, only sit down dining
