1- Unlike other cruise lines, drinking package doesn’t include bottled water and specialty coffee!!!!!! You have to pay extra for those! Unbelievable 2- Not so baby friendly cruise! 1- no baby with diaper is allowed in the pool, even swimming diaper is not permitted 2- the only indoor swimming pool is a 18+ and at extra fee. So family having young baby gets no pool to enjoy at all!!! 3- daycare service is very restrict with specific time slot. It’s like we have to move our schedule around the nursery time. 3- Slow elevators and it stops at every floor regardless if someone push the bottom or not. 4- Slow and sometime no so friendly service at the restaurant. The reservation system is bad too. You can only reserve when the restaurant is closed, once it’s open, it’s a first come first serve base. 5- smoking is allowed in the casino! The smell is crazy even in the area close to the casino!!! They should have a closed room just for the smokers! 6- you need to reserve in advance for parasol or clamshell for their private island. You can’t rent them on the spot. Terrible experience! Overall, not impressed! Do not recommend!!!
