Traveled with children

We chose this cruise because the price was right and we were willing to give it a try, knowing it may not meet our normal expectations. We were right.

The room was nice and the state room attendant came by often to clean it. First time we've been on a cruise where there were no towels to start but once we requested them, they arrived.

The kids club was probably the worst part as we had a 12 year old with us and she did not bring a friend or a sibling. Probably because of being short-staffed they lumped all the kids together ages 12 to 17 instead of the normal grouping where there would have been two groups. Now is when I should say we are used to Royal Caribbean and the kids club was not nearly as good. They published activities for the kids but the staff said that usually the kids don't want to do the activities so they just hang out. The room was small and there were a few video games, and other table games to choose from. Major bust and it put a damper on her fun as well as didn't give us the time we were looking for to spend some time in the casino or spa.

Balcony Aurea

Modern, clean, decent size but a little small for a balcony room.
