This was our first cruise and we brought our 3 yr old son with us. The cruise by far exceeded our expectations, with the weekly spa pass as our favorite portion of the trip. The only negative was the childcare. Our son needs a minute to warm up to new places and people. They would make us stand there in front of him as he cried (like torture) instead of letting him go off with the other kids and forget about us. If he continued to cry (which of course he did) he wouldn't be allowed to stay. Needless to say, he only went once. But it turned out well as we spent time at the pool and the free evening shows :)

Ship Tip

Don't bring a hairdryer, they have them in the room. Also they provide a 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner and body wash in the shower.
