Not Worth the Price

Sail Date: February 2011
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
This cruise was such a disappointment. The family areas are so loud and rambunctious, that you never want to spend time there, and the adult sections are nice, but your kids can't go in them. The kids club has so many kids, and the projects and activities are cheap, disorganized and extremely chaotic--great for super outgoing children that like a raucous time, but for normal kids--it's a turn off and hard to meet others, because there are just so many kids, you don't see the kid you met the last time again--therefore, they don't meet friends and don't want to go to the kids club. Plus checking them in and out of the kids club feels like you are checking them in and out of prison. The kids staff was a bit rude and cold. You had to scan them in and out, and they had to wear some kind of tag the whole time. The food was inferior to Royal Caribbean, Princess, Norwegian and Celebrity, but on par with Carnival. Seeing the Disney Characters was cool, but they rush past you so quickly More that it's not worth it--buy your own Mickey costume take it on a RCCL cruise and save the money. We went with extended family(10 people), but none of the adults(like my parents) ever spent time with us, because they didn't want to venture into the family sections. The cruise cost twice as much as Princess or other quality lines for half the quality of food and services. The staff were so-so on the Disney line, but the shows were cool. We had some really poor waiters, and some okay assistant waiters. The room was bigger on Disney, than on other ships.

Pros: Big rooms, good shows, Disney characters

Cons: Expensive, noisy, obnoxious kids and passengers were everywhere, mediocre service from crew, ridiculously small library, really shoddy kids club, second rate food, inconvenient buffet hours(This killed us, it was closed every time we wanted to eat + it seemed dirty, dingy, and worse than Sizzler in appearance, selection and food quality) Less
