First cruise with the entire family, including 3 kids, ages 4 and 2. thought this would be a good starter since it was relatively close and we had been on the itinerary before with other cruise lines.
Overall, it was a horrific experience with few bright spots:
* transfer bus from lax took 2 hours due to staff slowness and multiple stops at lax. note: traffic was light and not an issue.
Cabin was clean, but quite small for a balcony stateroom. Nice bathroom. Very little storage space compared to other balcony cabins on other ships. Excellent stateroom attendant.
