Review SummaryWe took our 8 year old on vacation. We work hard all year and we were ready to chill out. Of course, she is out of school for summer vacation and ready for activities!
Fortunately, everyone was accommodated on this cruise. No matter what you wanted to do, it was all available.
We really enjoyed the family activities on board also. Playing Wii, Cup Cake making, Lego family fun, and more. Our daughter enjoyed the Kids Zone which gave us time to stroll the deck alone.
Really enjoyed the Junkanoo Museum in Nassau. The hostess is extremely knowledgable and gave great historic facts about the custom and culture. Very family friendly and you get to take AWESOME photo's at the end with actual native Junkanoo headresses on!!!
Stirrup Cay was our family fun time for full activity and we had a ball swimming with the fish, snorkeling, the Hippo water slide was cool for our daughter, good food, ping pong, limbo, volley ball. It was great. Glad we got there early in the morning because the "clamshell" seating is limited and we definitely needed it when the sun was blasting down. However, you can reserve them ahead of time and not worry about it.
I took a cruise a few years ago on Royal Caribbean and this was MUCH better!
Next time, we want a penthouse!!! Enjoy your vacation.

Pros: We loved the peace and relaxation of our private balcony and the more relaxed freestyle dining when we did not feel like dressing up. Stewards were really nice and attentive.
Cons: Just wish they wouldn't let folks in the Garden Cafe by the food half naked!!! Guys with swim trunks down to their groin and no shirts, girls with G-strings and almost pasties! Kinda (NO VERY) gross when you are eating!! You wonder if "little hairs" are flying into your food when they walk by! YUCK
