We chose this cruise because other families from our son's graduation class were going. We were part of a large travelling party and had a ball! The only negative about this cruise was the loud music. The bands by the pool were so loud you could not hold a conversation with the person next to you. When the young adults 18+ were complaining about the music level, you know it was way too loud. Several complaints to staff resulted in no reduction in volume. The club Bliss and Piano Bar also had excessive volume levels. I would suggest bringing noise reduction ear plugs to reduce ear damage. We found the food to be excellent with lots of variety. We did miss having straws for our drinks. It was a little weird having a frozen drink without one. Don't know why there were no straws on board. Definitely need more bartenders at the pool bar. It took a while to get a drink and the bartenders were pretty cranky when you asked for 2 drinks to save the wait. All in all we still had a great time.

Great Time!
