When can we go back? Can we stay forever?
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
My twin daughters, 8 yrs old, wanted to know if they could stay on the cruise ship forever.
Since most reviews are written from an adult perspective, my daughters Ellie and Jenna are going to review our experiences here from a children's perspective.
Their favorite things were (not in order):
- Everything - Ice Cream (soft serve at the pool) - All the pools - especially the whirlpool that makes you move in circles, and the H2O zone, but also liked the sports and main pool and kid's area hot tub - Lots of sweets from breakfast through dessert - Rock Wall - Adventure Ocean - Carousel - Pets at Sea - Dolphin Excursion - Fun animal shaped towels every night on the bed - Sorrento's Pizza - St. Martin - picking sea shells on the beach - Aqua theater show - Hairspray - Dining room - ordering whatever they wanted + that the waiter knew what they More liked and did not like by the 2nd night... - Donut shop - Cupcake place
The only things they did not like... waiting to get on the ship. It was not bad but they were not super patient. waiting to get off the ship - this did take a little while. They loved Adventure Ocean, but when they did the pirate show, the face paint was super hard to get off and it looked like they had black eyes for a day or so. And the thing they liked least (along with their parents) was the bagpipe player. Just not my thing - and to me it was annoying. I know others may like it. Less

Port and Shore Excursions
Once we went to the straw market and other stores near the ship, they said the only part of the Bahamas that they liked were the dolphins.
I loved the jewelry stores. They wished I did not go in them :)
Also the taxi drivers getting to the beach - well - it was almost like a roller coaster. They thought it was fun - but I thought it was scary.
