My husband and I, along with our two children ages 13 and 7, just took this cruise and are dying to talk about it! It was simply phenomenal! The food was excellent, there was an enourmous list of activities to choose from, the excursions were a blast, the shows were entertaining, but most of all, the service was superb!
We have taken many cruises in the past, with many different cruise lines. However, this one was by far, our favorite! Our family is a very sporty and adventurous family; however, we each have our particular tastes and priorities. This cruise offered amazing options that suited each of our various wants and needs.
A note to parents with younger children...the Legally Blonde and the dance show were more PG-13 than PG rated, in our opinion. This actually may have been listed on the itinerary; however, we incorrectly assumed that all shows are like Disney ones. Great shows, but if you are a conservative parent, you may want to leave the little guy in the kids' area while you enjoy the shows. This is the only thing, about this entire cruise, that I would have done differently. No big deal, though. My seven year old did not exactly pick up on the language and gestures; we just happen to be conservative parents.
The service was, by far, the best we have ever experienced on a cruise. The staff was attentive, efficient, and extremely polite. Everyone was always smiling and helpful! Amazingly engaged staff with contagious smiles and enthusiasm!
We highly recommend this cruise, regardless of your age or preferences. There is something here for everyone! We will certainly return.

Read the daily itinerary that is placed in your cabin nightly. It lists all activities for the next day, as well as an hour by hour choice of activity. Leave all jewelry behind when going on the blue or green slide. Otherwise, they will ask you to take them off. Some shows have PG-13 content. Ask.
