GOOD AND BAD

Sail Date: October 01, 2006

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

THIS WAS OUR 5TH CRUISE AND THE FIRST SINCE THE BIRTH OF OUR TWO CHILDREN. WE DECIDED THAT A 3 DAY CRUISE WOULD BE THE BEST IN CASE THE KIDS DID NOT LIKE IT. THE SHIP WAS NICE FOR IT'S AGE AND THE STAFF WAS VERY HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY FOR THE MOST PART, HOWEVER WE WERE TRAVELING WITH MY FATHER WHO HAD RECENTLY BROKEN HIS LEG AND THE SHIP IS NOT VERY WHEEL CHAIR FRIENDLY. THE POOL AREA WAS VERY CHILD FRIENDLY AND MY 4 YEAR OLD REALLY ENJOYED THE KIDS PROGRAM. THE DINING ROOM FOOD WAS EXCELLENT AND OUR WAITER KRISTIAN AND ASSISTANT ROLSTON WERE THE BEST IVE HAD IN 5 CRUISES. THE BUFFET WAS AVERAGE AND I DID NOT APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT IF YOU WANT A BURGER YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE ON BOARD RESTAURANT JOHNNY ROCKETS AND PAY FOR IT. THE OTHER MAJOR PROBLEM IS THE CABINS ARE REALLY SMALL 128 SQ FEET, TOO SMALL FOR MORE THAN 2 PEOPLE. OUR CABIN STEWARD WAS NOT VERY GOOD AT CLEANING THE CABIN OR REPLACING TOWELS. NASSAU WAS OK THE AQUARIUM AT ATLANTAS WAS REALLY BEAUTIFUL. WE DID NOT GET TO GO TO COCO CAY DUE TO ROUGH SEAS WHICH I GUESS IS VERY COMMON ON THIS CRUISE. OVERALL I WOULD SAY IT WAS AVERAGE, CARNIVAL ALLOWS CHILDREN 2 AND OLDER INTO CAMP CARNIVAL AND SINCE ROYAL CARIB. IS 3 AND UP MY WIFE AND I DID NOT GET A BREAK FOR 3 DAYS.

Cons: CABIN SIZE
