We went on this cruise for my sons 14th birthday. It was HORRID! Because it was over thanksgiving the lines were long and crowds were everywhere. The service was also horrible.

The food tasted bland and lines in the windjammer were unorganized and long. the wait staff called my wife fat and never brought us what we wanted. So we ate at the windjammer every night.

Our stateroom was never cleaned the whole trip we ended up making the beds every day. We tried complaining but the customer service lady was so rude I just left. We also saw a rat in our stateroom.

There was nothing to do onboard. I just sat in a chair all day because everything had such long lines. My sons (14 and 5) went to there classes the first few days but they hated it so I got to babysit them all day. The people in my 5 year old's Adventure Ocean class hated him and kicked him out. When I to pick him up he was not there. She said she kicked him out for rude behavior. Seriously? We searched for about 2 hours until we found him wandering around in the windjammer cafe. Which is 2 decks below.

The excursions were the only fun part in the cruise.

I reccomend not to go especially over thanksgiving or you will regret it. I chose not to rate because it was so horrible.
