Great family time, the kid's club was good, lot of activities for the kids than keep them busy, but watch out, lot of kids with flu and my oldest get a little cold after being 3 hours on it. But kids gonna love it. The pool is nice,(salt water) but a little pack, nice in the nights. The hallway next to the elevator in the back of the ship always stinks like sewer in the morning, thats the only negative thing that i can say about the whole trip. You will needs a major credit card, no cash will be accepted in the ship except for tips or inside the casino, also you can pay with cash at the end of the trip or everyday in the guess desk.

The food was very good, my favorite was the buffet. The grill by the pool was ok. Azura rest. and t'zar palace was absolutely awesome, great service and great steak (azura), but, i still dreaming with the BLUE LAGOON'S wings, omg, where can i found some wings like that? great rest. in top of the reception, is the only one open 24 hrs, but is just some kind of fast food, wings, mozarella sticks, chiken fingers, and chiken breast sandwich with french fries, thats it, but simplely delicious. The chocoholic night was nice.

I had a balcony that i enjoy a lot, the bed super comfortable, the fridge too small, the bathroom was ok, the toilet section was a little bigger than a airplane and the shower was good, after all we are in a ship, is not a hotel.

All kind of activities for all ages and all life styles everytime from 6 am to closing after midnight. The stardust theater was my favorite, them play movies in the day and some other activities and 2 principal funtions at night everyday (everyday is different). My favorite show was the comedian and magician Jean Pierre, he is absolutely awesome for kids and adults. VERY DISSAPOINTED with the nickelodeon characters, only see dora twice in the whole trip and sponge bob just one time and this was in especific activities, never came out through the ship. Also the slime show tha is on friday, slime seems to be so expensive that you see a little at the end of the show.

I paid the magic kingdom excursion with my kids and was great. NASSUA BAHAMAS, Please, DON'T PAY the excursion to the atlantis, i paid the atlantis tour and day in the beach and was a waste of money, the tour in the hotel drive you to the reception and give you a map and you have to go on your own, finally on the hotel beach, the locals trying to sell you some stuff in any or another way. Behind us, in the bushes, some of the locals was selling some kind of drugs. I just feel so threated than i just take my family and went back to the ship. Stirrup cay, beautiful, safe and again beautiful, i just get there and get a palm tree and just sat there with my pina colada and my kids love the white sand and clear water, that was my favorite place from the trip.

Friendly staff, great food, great shows and great time. And the best, is a free styling cruise, do whatever you want when yoyu want. And remember, if you are going to this trip soon please say hello to the famouse washy washy ladie ( catherine ) in the buffet door, you will know what i'm talking about. Good luck
