Our 9 & 7 year old had a blast, often preferring the Splash Academy youth center over time with Mom & Dad. We enjoyed the shows and the ships, but were a little disappointed with all of the additional charges. Nickelodeon Pajama Jam lasted 60 minutes and even the adults were charged $20pp. Probably would just send one adult next time.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Some memorable experiences combined with some very average ones. Highly recommend The Bistro french cafe, but we found that after the cover charges, wine and auto tip we spent more than we would at a 5-star restaurant in the city. Our italian dinner at La Trattoria in Victoria was about the same price and much finer.

Ship Quality

A rock climbing wall or a more thrilling slide would be great, but overall the ship quality was fantastic.
