Having just returned from a 14 day cruise with an 11 year old daughter, I would say that for anyone wanting a fantastic all round family holiday, this could not have been better unless you are looking for things to criticize. Everything was perfect because we all had fun. Yes, it was busy but you cannot expect anything else at the height of the school holidays. Yes, there was a huge range of people from different professional levels and backgrounds but when you have a family this matters not and when you go on a ship like this, what else would you expect????
Children can attend kids club if they wish and those who did, had the time of their lives starting early in the morning until 1.00 am in the morning where they chose to do so. It was our daughter's first cruise and she was a bit apprehensive thinking she might be bored!! Now, she does not want to go on any other type of holiday and is eagerly awaiting us to book our next one.
Embarkation and disembarkation were both excellent. We were on board by 11.30am and in our room and unpacked by 2pm (suitcases all arrived by 1.30pm).
