Overall, the cruise was very well run. The staff was very friendly and working hard. I would recommend, especially if your baby is older than two years old.

We were traveling with a 1 year old baby. It would be good if we could have some babysitting services as an option.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Very good staff, I really remember several people personally. The staff felt like friends.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very nice ship. I am not a fan of the Caribbean-type decor of the carpets. Other than that it was nice.

Cabin / Stateroom

I don't know why they had to cut the balcony view for the last balcony on the ship. Our balcony view was partial.

My baby and I went to see Wildlife adventure. I thought the zoo was GREAT. I could really see many animals in a short amount of time, including all the five wildcats.

South Beach Experience had a very nice swimming pool but their man-made lagoon HAS TO be cleaned properly - it had waste/trash everywhere.
