Enjoyed dinner and the show. Staff provided great service for beverages and each course of our meal. Ethan was great fun and was an expert at cracking a lobster. The performers spread out so everyone could enjoy the show. Thank you for a great evening.

Our specific cruise was steak and lobster. Didn't see any young children on board. They may have different cruises for couples versus families. I would call and check with them.
