We had an amazing time! Awesome cabin steward, room was very spacious although the sofa/bed where my son slept was not so comfortable--we didn't know until late in the week to ask the steward for something to help (our first cruise). Food was wonderful, private island was fun. Pool was too small and too crowded. There were actually 2 pools, one was designated for adults only and the child friendly pool was full of 4 and 5 year olds--no fun for my 14 year old. Good news is the water slides were fun and he LOVED the basketball court!! There was more than enough activities on board (we did not partake in some) and the shows were fantastic!!! My son loved the comedians--and most were family friendly! My biggest complaint is the awful dirty ashtray smell from the casino. It was gross and unavoidable. Not sure why they still allow smoking on board, kind of nerve wracking since we were in the middle of the ocean and God forbid there was a fire. We are excited for cruise # 2 next year! Beautiful ship!!

Great trip!

Cabin Review

Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BF 9732
Cabin was much bigger than we expected. Balcony was roomy and what a view! main bed was somewhat comfortable, extra bed-not so much. Good news is you can request extra padding and they were quick to help. TV was terrible, we had no idea what to expect and we are big tv people. I guess it is hard to have regular tv in the middle of the ocean, lol. bathroom was roomy and the shower had wonderful water pressure!
