Loved "Shark Bait"

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
My 4 1/2 year old daughter had the BEST time going to Kids Crew!! Every morning she'd ask me to read her "the list" of activities planned at Kids Crew for the day. Twice when we went to pick her up in the evening she insisted on staying until the end of the day! My 2 1/2 year old son, however, didn't want to go to Kids Crew. He loved it the first day when we visited and signed him up, but after that, he would just cry and not stay. I think it would be better if the entrance to the 2-5 year old section was not in such a long, dark, cramped hallway. I think it made it seem like we were taking him to a dungeon. I noticed other kids reacting the same way. Perhaps if the little ones could enter on the bigger side, they'd be more excited to go.

Cute stop...typical tourist to shop...

Pros: The spa, the food, kids crew, "Shark Bait", The Great Outdoors....

Cons: The people who would "save" their chaise lounge chairs in the spa area while they were gone for 50+ minutes!! That is just rude and shouldn't be tolerated by spa attendants!

Recommends Norwegian Pearl? Yes!
