Sail Date: Dec 2006
Traveled with children

We had booked this cruise in total with 6 people including three children of 2, 6 and 14 years old. I would not recommend this cruise. For the children it was a nightmare and very very boring. it started with the first day. We wanted to use the whirlpool with the children because that water was very warm. We were almost pulled out of that water because children below 16 years are not allowed to use the whirlpool. The water of the swimming pool was freezing so we had crying children who did not understand why they could not use the whirlpool.

The miniclub is nice. However when you enter you have to sign in but everybody could walk in and walk out so we there is no control or no security so you can imagine that we could not let the little one of 2 years there. This was by the way the only playing area for the children. There is a small gamespace but not for little children.

The entertainment is only for adults so no use for the children except for the one of 14 years who loved to follow the dance lessens however the lessons were only 15 minutes.
