Review summary

It was a great experience overall with my family as our first cruise. we will definitely consider other ships to compare. All of the hidden charges that I had to find out on my own after booking was very unpleasant as a first time cruiser. Most of the waiters and housekeeping staff were superb. My son got sick and had reds bumps all over his body, we went to see a medic, which was very expensive and unfriendly.
