To celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary we decided to take a cruise and bring our 3 daughters (15,13,8). We were all very excited, but that ended with the accumulation of fees to do anything on the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
More room than we were expecting, comfortable king bed, but the foldout was terrible. Shower was nice, and the cabin had lots of storage.

Ship tip

Prepare to spend more money, we had a drink package and $200 onboard credit and still ended up owning and additional $1200 on top of the $7500 we paid. It all added up and wasn’t really worth the money.
