Nickelodeon Theme-was disappointing

Sail Date: April 2012
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami

The ship was clean, service was great, cruise director-Papichulo_ great with engaging people in games. The disappointing thing on this cruise was the lack of Nickelodeon activities for kids 10-12yrs old. yes, there were characters when we were in port and 2 times at sea, but there was only 2-30 minute slime game that only required 2 kids. there was not enough of these. After that, the pool games were basically for adults. There was not Nickelodeon theme activities all over the ship as I imagined there would be.

The price I paid for an inside cabin was higher than most cruises but you basically got room and board and cafeteria food for it. The Garden Cafe-was basically cafeteria food. If you wanted something better-I recommend Cagney's Steakhouse-it was fab! the food was real restaurant food but it comes with a cover charge of 25.00 per adult and 12.50 for child.

I was disappointed that 10 pictures from the photographer cost a whooping 115.00! Really, for pictures! More The games the kids play are at a charge of 1.50 per game. Yes, all this is added to your room charges. I just thought things were way over priced and I was not happy with the cafeteria food available at the Garden Cafe. I guess the cruise lines have decreased food quality so that your forced to purchase surcharges for better food.

I rather go to an island for 7 days then eat cafeteria food for 7 and pay extrat for everything-yes even pool towels are at a cost. Soda program for 7 days for kids is 34.00 and adults is 47.00. Way overpriced!! Less

Cabin review: Norwegian Epic dk 10

The cabin was small but perfect for a child and adult. two twin beds in 10-101. it was right by the elevator and mid ship. the bathrooms are equipped with hair dryer, shower gel and shampoo only.

Paid 200.00 for this one but it was not worth the money. You basically get a day at Wet n Wild in Florida. That's it. The resort overcharges for water $4.00 a bottle, A drink will cost you 10.00, and food can cost up to $30.00 a person. The resort only takes credit cards--NO CASH! I won;t o that again and can't see how people pay 399.00 a night to stay there.

wait off the ship and do the ATV tour of the island. It will only cost you 80.00 for two passengers! Cruise ship wanted 100.00 for the same thing!

the best excursion and we did the Sea Trek underwater as well. Well worth the 200.00 you pay.
