Review summary

So the staff was amazing.  The food was average, just too repetitive.  The boat is really clean and well kept.  The shows were below average.  The alcohol package was a must!  Now onto the arcade:  miserable.  They allow my 11 year old to use his card to swipe the $2 games.  I gave him permission to play 10 games per day=$20.  On day 4 I get a notice on my stateroom door that they need me at the front desk.  I go and find out his total so far on day 4 was $360!!!!!!!  I almost vomited all over them.  My son told me the card wasn't swiping so he kept doing it over and over and over again.  The print out they gave us only showed the DATE not the TIME he swiped so I had no way to prove it.  Needless to say I will never cruise with them again.  I was totally depressed the rest of my stay.  UNFAIR!!!!!
