My honest review of this ship, with the good, bad and the ugly.

Embarkation: We flew in the night before and booked through GoPortCanaveral for our Hotel and Shuttle service. HIGHLY recommend this service. Our shuttle dropped us off to the Port at about 11 am. We waited a little while for embarking, as they said they had trouble getting the prior passengers off ship. More on this later.

The Ship: Kids - The kids splash pad area and water slides were great. The kids club was packed every single day, with parents just dumping their kids off for the entire day. (The club will keep your kids, and feed them lunch and dinner, all day. I dont really understand the point of taking a family trip if you're doing that, but...) The staff there were excellent, and our kids liked them, but the other children were, for the most part, a little boisterous, and poorly mannered. Our kids had trouble making any friends at all, and chose to simply not return to the club. This made finding things for them to do, other than the splash pad, a little difficult. The Sports square looked like a good option, but it was also jammed with families, and unattended kids, making it hard to utilize without getting run off the golf course by kids who don't know how to wait their turn. Our 2 youngest were too small for the ropes course, but it looked awesome! Our oldest loved the SkyCourt (Basketball) and pools, and spent most of his time there with his new cruise friends.

Cabin was clean, well attended and spacious enough. Lots of storage space and hangers. Beds were a little hard. Kids loved the pullman bunk.
