Traveled with children

We had been planning this cruise for months. Finally school was out and crusing time. We live about 2 hours from Galveston so i prebooked E-Z parking and paid and printed out 7:30 am and two stops we were parking our 3 cars. Loaded up one van to the terminal and went thru security. Yes they did check our water bottles and also any other liquid. Got our S&S card and our classic picture with the toddler sleeping in his stroller. ON deck by noon and eating on the Lido deck. Food was great and at 1:30pm found our cabins and our luggage. 3:30pm the drill and off we went out to the blue ocean.

We had a huge table for all 11 of us in the dinning room. We ate all 5 nights there and had wonderful food and wait staff. The grandchildren ate off the children's menu with every night having a glass of chocolate milk waiting for them. Food here and on Lido deck was really good. My husband and grandchildren enjoyed the ice cream.

Entertainment was good and we went 3 nights out of 5.

Cabin Review

Interior

We had an inside cabin. Was very clean and enough room for two people. Daughter and family had a cabin for 5 with bunk beds and a lot of luggage and clothing. From the bunks the grandchildren could watch TV.

Progreso

We really enjoyed going to a new port. Would love to go back again.
