Had a great time, but....

Sail Date: March 18, 2015

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

As was the case with our first cruise with you, the staff, service and food were really very good.

And although it's promoted as a full family cruise adventure, it's really not sufficiently geared for young children. We had our 5-year old grandson, and aside from the kiddie room, and the terrace slide, there really wasn't much for them.

My wife purchased a spongebob breakfast, but at $20/person, we found it very expensive. Given how little children eat or the space they take up, this should have been free.

Cabin / Stateroom My wife booked an inside stateroom to save money.
I won't be doing that again. Too dark, given its size.
And too small for 3 people, even if the third was our squirt grandson.
