We have been on five previous cruises, all with Princess. Perhaps, if this was our first cruise, this review would be more favorable. After saying that, I have to admit that we did not cruise with children before. We cruised this time with our daughter and son in law, our two grand children, 5 and 9, and another couple with their two children of the same age.
The children loved the cruise and they loved the Oceaneers Club and Lab. When we were out on an excursion, they wanted to go back to the ship and join the Club. All the Characters were friendly and cuddly. The Princesses were always smiling and caring. They really enjoyed the pool and water slide regardless of the outside temperature.
The little wristbands they put on the kids and the mobile wave phones were a big plus. We always knew where the kids were and when they wanted to be picked up. We felt the children were completely safe on board.
The room was fine. I liked the double bath, so my husband could use the shower while I was using the other sink and mirror. The hair dryer is awful, kind of like a shop vac, plus the handle gets very hot while using. The closet was a good size. The bed was comfortable.
We had been in Juneau twice before so we saw most of what we wanted to see before. Since it was raining, we just took a tour, free, of the State Capital and it was quite interesting. The young docent, Carrie, gave a good presentation and tour.
