This was our first cruise and it was wonderful. The ship was beautiful and the staff was exceptional. The food was delicious. The only drawback was the kids program. It didn't deliver what it advertised. The scavenger hunts they had for the 8-12 year-olds were unsupervised around the ship. If your "tween" didn't have parent permission to do this then they had to go to the 3-7 year-old room and color.
