Overview:

We have sailed several different cruise lines in the past, and when our friends whom are loyal Princess cruisers invited us along, we agreed it would be fun to try a new line. I'm personally surprised by the negative reviews because we had such a fantastic experience! yes, the ship is older, but I found it to be well maintained. The only thing that I truly did not like was the size of the cabin. We had a balcony on the Baja deck and it was probably the smallest balcony room I've ever sailed with. Thankfully, we didn't let that spoil our cruise! We traveled with friends, which made it extra special. Our friends have two kids and we have one daughter age 11. I will say that we had some interesting experiences with other passengers. Some were downright rude towards my daughter and our friends children. They acted as if kids shouldn't have been on this cruise. We did meet others that were very sweet towards the kids, so that gave me hope. This ship is definitely not a 'kid's' ship like Disney, but I will say that the kid's programs were excellent and my daughter loved the Junior Chef at Sea program. All in all, a very fun cruise! Great Ports of Call in Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao!

Definitely smaller than other lines I have been on. If I sail this ship again, I'll consider a Mini suite. Clean and the beds were comfortable.
