Sail Date: Dec 2017
Cabin: Porthole

Needed a cruise that left after Christmas and this fit the bill and was longer than other companies offered. The ship looks like it needs an update. The decorations are outdated and very pink, seats are cracked and it needs a facelift. Not much to do on the ship in terms of activities. Two waterslides and mini golf did not hold my children's attention (ages 10, 12) and they did not want to go to camp since we were traveling with extended family. Cruise director, MarQ was excellent - maybe the best that we've experienced on 9 cruises with varying companies. The music was good - more appropriate for the age of the crowd - there was an 80's show, trivia, 90's music and some 70's. Dance party on the deck was lively. Food was good but service only eh. Room size was great for a family of 4 and more spacious than most other ships. Needed more activities to do during the day since the ports were shorter days or people didn't get off.
