Ship was in great condition. Entertainment was good. I'm not a huge fan of shows anyways, but we did see several shows of which only one we didn't enjoy. One comedian they had on was terrific (and I'm not a big fan of comedians.) As for the kids....Since we don't have any, kinda hard to answer that one. THO...We did see A LOT of that age group you are specifying, and the DID seem to be enjoying themselves. They have a "family" pool area and that pool was packed. I think your kids will have a good time at that age (but thats an opinion from a non parent so...take it as it is
) I think (maybe always not a good idea) that this ship is going into dry dock next year. If I remember correctly, during the Captain Circle get together, he had mentioned that fact. But I wouldn't bet my life on it. Actually I wouldn't bet anything on that. Overall we had a great time and I would guess that whichever ship you choose, you will too. If I can be of any other help, please let me know.
