Sail Date: Sep 2016
Traveled with children

Family of 2 adults, 6 year old and 1 10 month old sailed the 5 day Vancouver to LA in a 2 br suite 11506. Fantastic experience from start to finish. Embarkation and disembarkation was always very easy. Cabin was in reat shape and is just the perfect set up for a family. As others have noted a little noise in this cabin around 4 or 5 am from scraping chairs on the above deck. I only noticed it if I was already awake. Didn't get much use out of our butler but our steward Raymundo accomodated our unique sleeping and nap schedules while going out of his way to engage with our kids. The staff in general were great, especially in dealing our children. Our baby hit a couple milestones on this trip including learning how to clap and that was in part thanks to all the lovely attention from the staff.

We never tried the main dining room. Ate in Moderno's for breakfast and lunch. Dinner was Cucina, so so, Cagney's, terrific, and Moderno, terrific as well. Hit the buffet a few random times and it was ok. Drink service was great with good pours and fast, friendly delivery.

Kids programs were ok. Missing the Nickeleodeon characters. Used to be better imho but staff worked hard and were friendly.
