I too travelled on the imagination. I was reluctant, because I had always travelled on the more "upscale" ships..(celebrity & NCL). For some silly reason I never anticipated That many children, but was thrilled to see them. We travelled with my 2 kids(17 mos & 5) and my soisters 9 year old. We took the trip to avoid the traditional Thanksgiving, as my sister lost her 19 year old son in July in a horrible auto accident. She had a wonderful time & actually managed to laugh & enjoy herself for the 1st time since the accident. I found the ship to be clean, the staff to be absolutely wonderful & the food to be great(not as good a celebrity..but good enough). Our kids are no angels, but they were never allowed to run the ship unescorted....in this day and age I cannot imaginge that anyone would, but I saw plenty running wild. I guess as a parent of young children it didn't phase me. We had our own table, at the early seating..so there were lots of other families around us..noone even noticed my little one's occassional tantrum(except the waiter..who blwss his soul would come running with food and drink for her. He was awesome(Gede....bus boy Ricky) We really had no complaints about the ship..except getting off in the ports was slow..... We loved it..sorry you had such a bad experience Dwynn!
Good for you and esp your sister! I am sorry to hear of your/her loss. That's something I can't even imagine but I can understand. I have been on several spring break cruises and yes there are alot of kids and even some unruly ones but you have to figure that during any school break time you will see more children. If cruise from hell would have understood maybe she would have had a better time and not blame it on the cruise line. Oh well that is her problem and hopefully she won't do that again. God bless you all!
