For those of you who are thinking about going on a cruise--this is a smaller one. I was worried about it not being as much fun as the last one, carnival conquest. But, man was i wrong!!! If you are traveling with young ones, this is a great cruise. I am 13 and i met tons of people. I just went to the disco and walked up and set down in a group of people that i hung out with for the whole cruise.

If you are like me, the month before the cruise, you are on this page reading all of the reviews for this ship and seeing good, bad nad ugly. Well this is a good one. I had heard that this ship was dirty, trashy, and smelly. Well, they must have been on another ship, because this ship was as clean as clean can be. The only complain i have is that since this is a smaller ship you could really feel the ship rocking. But i never got any sick feeling of any night at dinner the ship started to shake really badly. I mean the forks were jumping off of the plates. The group of girls at the table next to us must have been right over the engines or something because their bread bounced off the table onto the floor. They were just laughing away!!!

The ship does get crowded at times, like right before dinner the stairways were wall to wall people, but you'll get that on any ship. I didn't like the fact that there was no grand atrium. It was just like a lobby of a hotel, with an information desk and a shore excursions desk. There was always something to do on this cruise. The kids just do their own thing while the parents relax on the deck.

The ship has a library, a tahiti's lounge, a cappuchino's area where you can sit, a casino, a doc holiday's lounge, an americana lounge, a rick's piano bar, a warf bar and grill, a children's playroom, a "kiddie deck" as my friends and I called it, two dining rooms, a spa, workout room, and lots of other things i can't seem to remember. If you have any questions, ask away!!!!
