There were also movies and comedy shows. Guests can spend time at the gym or swimming. The kids braved the swimming pool construction after breakfast one morning but ended up playing around as the water was not heated and too cold for them. There was also massage spa and salon for a fee.
What we love about the cruise -
*having everything organised and all we had to do was dress up and show up
*having time everyday to catch up and chat by ourselves and not having to worry about the kids
*lots of friendly Filipino crews - when i answered the post cruise survey, I noticed that hospitality was a priority. i think without bias that they picked the right people for the job
*kids and young families have plenty of things to do
*island day was very organised
*quality food served at every meal
What we learned -
*bring some cash and open an account for on board expenses
*booking onshore activities are great,but with young kids, we had to play by ear. Best to see how you go and not plan too many activities
*shops and services have sales towards the end of the cruise so you may want to look out for those
*we got asked to stop for photo ops and for the most part we were happy to oblige. It was then sold to us at a steep price.Because we did not spend much,we may have gotten a little carried away and splurge.
We did catch the "cruise bug" and have since been on the lookout for our next trip.
