We made the fourth family cruise trip on the occasion of my son's 7th birthday, they assured us to buy that our cabin would be very close to that of our children only when we went down the stairs: which was not at all true since the cabin of our children was on the ground floor, but to get there we had to take a long tour and also between the halls with difficulty to get our bearings, we went to a guest service and could not make any changes, which was a difficulty for the seven days of the trip. Most of the shows had extra cost, which left us with little entertainment at night, in the boat's publicity there is a bowling game and other things to do, which on board have extra costs while on other cruise lines specify what has extra costs with that you know you should have more budget for those activities. The food was excellent in variety and delicious, both in the buffet and in the dining rooms for dinner. They called for a family party and only lasted half an hour and told us that we should go out because the adult party was still going on, which was quite uncomfortable with the excited child taking it out because the activity below was not for his age. In general terms the cruise was good but there are aspects to improve, it is cheaper than other shipping companies but it seems that they want to recover money with all the extra costs on board.
