I chose this cruise because I wanted to try cruising on an older, smaller cruise ship with my kids. I saw a relatively cheap cruise from Baltimore, Maryland and booked it. My kids were a little disappointed as they were expecting to go on one of the newer cruise ships, but, nevertheless, they had a great time onboard. We entered the ship in the atrium, which really amazed us. For the size and age of the ship, this was a truly spectacular atrium. It spanned up near the lido deck and felt cozy and comfortable. It had a nice feeling. The ships layout was a little confusing as we were used to the newer ships of today, but we got used to it. The kids clubs were well supervised and the service was very helpful. The food was average for Royal Caribbean, which means it was really good. Overall, we had a great time onboard, and I recommend it to any family that wants a relaxing vacation on an older ship that doesn't have some of the big features of the newer ships.
