It was a nice break from our day-to-day life, but we took a different cruise line prior to this trip, and I'd rate that one superior. I enjoyed the entertainment and found the entertainers to be talented. The cruise director's staff was having a good time, which is always nice to see. The rooms were larger, clean, well-maintained and superior to the previous cruise line we've taken. The food wasn't great, and employees constantly forgot to bring us items we asked for (like drinks). The child center was mediocre and my son was yelled at. There weren't enough "free" dining options, and the specialty restaurants were expensive.
