Purchased this cruise for several reasons. Thought it would be perfect for "family" and was. The ship itself is in need of refurbishing. Our "balcony" cabin was very good overall but not as roomy (to us) as the same ones on Freedom class. They had comforters stuffed under the bed which made it almost impossible to place luggage under there. The lighting is in need of updating to LED as cabin lights were very dim. With it being the size ship it is, I would have thought there would have been at least more outlets. IE: A simple plug in within the bedlamps so you could charge phones by bed and use one on vanity for blow dryer, curling rods, etc.. The MDR was wonderful. The selection of food was good, service impeccable and just all around great for families. The family enjoyed the ports, beaches, and shops. They found the excursions a bit pricey so they booked their own once on land and it was wonderful. We only attended the comedy (adult) show and it was good and thankful not near as crude as expected. The grandchildren, ages 4 and 7 really enjoyed the Adventure Ocean area. Once they discovered it, they always wanted to go. The swimming pool is in serious need of "revamping" in our opinion. Chair hogs as we figured we would see, big children (over 12) in the kiddie pool and running wild, and people leaving their cups, plates, food, all over the place. I understand there are no "bins" to put your dirty dishes in at the pool area but to leave on ground for someone to kick around or stumble over is ridiculous! And to finish, the WILD ones! I have never encountered so many RUDE, OBNOXIOUS pre-teens and teens in all my life I understand it was spring break and they were on vacation as well but to block stairways, running and bumping into other guests and to throw dishes off the balconies like a frisbee is improper parenting!

Overwhelming!

Cabin Review

Cabin 9612
Overall nice but needs better lighting, more outlets, better access to closet. Be nice to have the counter in bathroom raised up higher.
