If you are under the age of 60 and love to have a great time, laugh, drink, socialise and be entertained then this cruise is NOT for you. It was 95% retirees over the age of 70. The activities and entertainment were designed to entertain the same age bracket. We are in our 30/40s and found the activities boring and the demographics were way too old. There was not even any background music playing in the bar/lounge areas and the pool deck areas. My kids ages 12/9 were absolutely bored, there was no entertainment for the kids and they found kids club to be very boring with limited visiting hours. The first night of our cruise the kids club was only open with adult supervision. Most of the time we were getting bold out of the way by wheeler walkers and motorised bikes. Some staff were lovely but majority just did not look happy in general. Services wasn’t that great either apart from a very selected few that were happy to go above and beyond for us. Food in the restaurant was great and the speciality restaurants were also great. Buffet was terrible. Overall we were very disappointed and won’t travel on the cruise line again.

Terrible for people under the age of 70 or younger kids
