Review SummaryDue to the cons listed, our trip was slightly not what we planned since it was our 20th anniversary and this is the first cruise (out of 6) that my son did not like the Teen activities (need more thought-definitely NOT AWARD_winning as they claim!). That took away from my husband and my "alone" time & date times...
Since the shows were very amateurish (unlike other cruise lines that have Vegas-type shows) we ended up either swimming or playing games or reading in the evenings. The showers are so small that if you turn, you hit the knob to hotter or colder and AAAHHH! Plus the curtain keeps going up your butt (how many people's butt germs are you collecting?).
On the good side, the crew was generally helpful and kind (with the exception of a few crankies here & there). The food was excellent all the time!! Our waiter couldn't be better...he got a better tip that they suggested! The cabin steward may have not always been handy, but left fun towel creatures in our room nightly. Plus the shore excursions were fun as well. Met lots of nice people.
We actually missed the cruise after we left...
