Not a great kids cruise in my opinion if your kids are not open to being sent off to hang out with other kids, 7 days is too long. There is a kids club and plenty of stuff planned, but if your kids are like mine, they wanted to be with me. Pool was salt water which stung eyes of the kids. It was hard to find a seat on deck and hot tubs were jammed packed all of the time, when it was warm which was about 2-3 days. Food was great, many options. Entertainment was great, best part of trip comedic magician, Cirque de Bijou, Comedic Hypnotist; getting on/off ship was pretty easy
