Thanks for your review. I read them before I went and it was very helpful. The one review about tips was great, I used them. Bringing an extra big cup, extension cord, extra coat hangers! They were good tips. Our party consisted of 11. The accomodations were great, the food was incredible - exceed expectations, as well as the ship was very kid friendly. I've read many reviews that said this was more for Seniors or couples. I was impressed by how gracious the staff was to children. The kids program was maxed out due to Easter Week. I heard that they had 450 kids on board.

Two items to note for future families, First, the ship only has a few 12 person tables, if you have a large party it will be split up no matter what they tell you prior to booking. Second, if you have a 3 year old child, they will hassle you to show a passport or birth certificate multiple times before you can leave them in the Fun Factory. I can see asking once .. but I was annoyed the fourth time they asked me to return to my cabin to get a passport.

Other reviews stated that they enforced the dress code, we did not find this to be the case.

The dining room was very relaxed and not picky at all!

I recommend this cruise! *****
