Thanks for your immediate response Ron.
The adults are in our late 30's/early 40s and kids are 6,8 and 9. We like to relax and do activities mainly for kids. We are not partying types. We would love to get a balcony seat if it is not way too expensive. from your review above and from other reviews, i see royal caribbean is good. But again, there are lots of ship options in there. which one would you recommend for us.. or shd i ask, which one should I not even consider?
