Over all was good. Room service wAs ok but never got everything we ordered and very limited selection. Also noted that on formal nights dress code should have been enforced better, people came in tank tops, swim suits and shorts which takes away from a formal night. My opinon these people should have been directed to the windjammer for dinner. When booking of cruise should be told that there could be lots of small children.

Dining room food was very tasty but lack of choices and repeat of many items on the menu. Finding food after midnight was difficult or unable to find at all.

Excellent, balcony room.

We found that was geared to adolescent group. Shows were geared to attract children's interest.

You can find better deals for excursions on the islands than on the ship.

Overall it was a nice trip,

1.Lack of supervision of children, who where running in halls, stairs and using elevators as toys pushing all the buttons so elevators would stop on each floor and if you made a comment to them they laughed at you and became disrespectful.

2. Shops to pushy on trying to sale items especially jewelry. ( BEWARE: If you purchase over $800 of merchandise you will be taxed back in the states. If you are told by shops don't believe them especially anything bought on the ship. Be sure and declare anything you buy because if you are pulled aside by customs you can be fined, items taken and it is a terrible experience and you are not treated nicely by US customs. None of this will be explained to you on the ship. It is duty free till you bring it back into the US then it is taxable.) Know the laws and have a great time.
