Cabin: Ocean Suite
Traveled with children

We have two teens, ages 13 and 15 and found this ship to be one with more than enough to do for young and old. Our 2 kids, along with their cousins who were also on this trip with us really enjoyed the waterslides, the ropes course and the sports court area. My husband and I, along with our brother and sister in law, enjoyed the evening entertainment including the late night comedy shows, the theater shows and the nightly music in the Brass Magnolia and Fortune Teller bars. The Celestial Strings violin trio was amazing, as were Rob and Igor, who were awesome musicians as well.

The service in the stateroom and in the bars and dining room did not disappoint. All staff were hard working, friendly and efficient in all areas of the ship.

Food options during the daytime were plenty. I think the fact that the pizza, panini and Pig & Anchor were located on a different deck than the lunch options on the Lido deck was a great way to spread out the busy lunch time crowds. The main dining room meals at breakfast and dinner were also great, although Sea Day brunch options on the menu in the dining room are limited in terms of breakfast foods. They have too many lunch options. Other than that, the ship is a beautiful layout with no shortage of things to do for any age

Cabin Review

Ocean Suite

A bit of a longer room, this extra space in the mini ocean suite provided ample storage for our family of 4. The large sink and shower were also a plus with two teens. The balcony was a decent size.
