We were first time cruisers traveling for a wedding with two girls 14 and 8. DISAPPOINTED is an understatement. How do you have the pool closed the entire trip with absolutely no notification or compensation? The food was poor at best. The smell in the buffet that you literally had to walk through to get almost anywhere was overwhelming and made you feel nauseous. The restaurants had more employees than guests but still the absolute worst service. Employee morale must be at an all time low. Employees seemed less than happy and extremely unfriendly and you couldn't find someone that spoke good enough English to understand. The only time employees electively reached out was when they were in your personal space NON-STOP to purchase alcoholic beverages.Communication for first time cruisers was non-existent so we just figured it out every step of the way - still trying to figure out what the ten charges to my credit card are from?!? Can't seem to find anyone who can get me a detailed bill.

Oh - and I must have missed the pre-requisite that if you are 12-50 you must wear a thong bathing suit on this family cruise.

Don't say I didn't warn you - keep looking before you commit.

DON'T do it.

Cabin 8067

Room was small but for the amount of time spent in it more than adequate.
