Great cruise option for families- we loved it and re booked whilst on board. Great food, bars and activities for all ages and interests. Never cruised before so initially disappointed by cabin, basically kitted out with few luxury touches. However it did the job perfectly well if we kept it tidy!! Cabin steward great. Windjammer very busy but served excellent food of a very high standard. We nick named it the crazy café though as it was so busy, we were put off by the plastic plates and fellow cruisers pushing and shoving. Main dining room excellent with great table service. Menu got repetitive towards end of 2 weeks. Pools small filled with sea water. Would do better with 1 larger pool with designated areas. Entertainment surprisingly good- go to see the shows they are great. They don't last too long to take up all your time. Bar service very good with highly trained staff. Some a little crowded with little sitting space which could be frustrating. My child was 11 turning 12 on this holiday. He was in between both kids club ages and felt didn't fit into either. He enjoyed the flowrider, climbing wall and golf. Travelled during school holidays so as expected lots of kids. Number of feral kids wandering about playing in lifts and running un checked was a problem. A fellow cruiser even felt bullied and intimidated by them. This would be my suggestion to RC- to put on some security to prevent kids getting too out of hand- whilst letting them enjoy the safety and freedom cruising allows.
