Have taken many cruises with my family of me, wife, and three girls. This one was average, no problems, very relaxing. The kids didn't get bored, and they never set foot in the "kids" area. There was enough going on to hold everyone's attention. This is not a "luxury" cruise, so if you're thinking Seaborne or QEII or QMII, stop right there! For the price, it was great. Only negative really was the food quality. There was a great QUANTITY of food always, 24/7, so you'd never go hungry, even at 4AM (I wouldn't know, personally, but so I'm told). Problem was, the food quality was on par with what you'd expect in a hospital cafeteria. Oh, better sounding entrees, to be sure, but the quality result was mass produced, average at best, instituttional meals. Don't hestiate to take the kids, this was really a good cruise, if you're not particular about your meals.

Billy Joes Seafood Shack on the beach (Lucaya) a must for conch fritters.
Don't Miss: The boat!

I'm going to buy a tee shirt that says "No, I don't want to buy your trinkets/have my hair braided/want to parasail/try your island concoction." Sales pressure at the beach was not threatening but somewhat annoying.
Don't Miss: again, the boat.

Pros: relaxation

Cons: food quality

Recommends Norwegian Sky? Yes!
