A few issues

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Overall, the cruise was nice but a few issues. The "kids" pool was too full. The depth ranged from 4'11"-5'9". Most kids on the cruise were shorter than that.
There was also not enough activities for ages 18-20.
Some of the wait staff had poor attitudes and did not know basic serving etiquette. I actually saw a waiter reach across a table to pour a glass of wine. This same waiter had their guests remove their own drinks from the tray instead of placing the glasses on the table.
