This was the first time our family took a cruise and it was a great experience.
Boarding the ship had a small delay but nothing drastic.
Service was very good, the crew we met were very pleasant and professional.
I was impressed by the fact that there were a lot of activities if we chose to participate but there were also ample opportunities to simply be on your own and have moments of solitude.
Our 16-year-old made good use of the teen club program and made some good friends.
The only set back was the fact our 18-year-old was unable to connect with her peers. Perhaps it was the time of year for the cruise and the fact most young adults were already part of a group and she was unable to insert herself into those pre-set circles.
She ended up experiencing some loneliness.
That said, she enjoyed the excursions and the shows we attended a great deal.
My wife and I are most definitely looking forward to cruising again in the future, but will likely look to a cruise that is not so oriented toward the family experience.
