The Edge on the Wonder

Considering a cruise on the Wonder from Miami. My kids would be in the Edge and the pictures online look downright depressing!

Could anyone give me some insight about their kid's experience in the Edge on the Wonder?
Thanks!

I agree!! It's dark and depressing looking!
As we've only been on the dream I was concerned about this from the start. But we really wanted to sail on a classic ship...we loved the dream but it's size was too much for us.
I have read from others that their kids had an amazing time in the club. I guess it's more about the councellors and activities. But we'll see...

Looking forward to any replies you get...

On the classic ships they do a lot of activities that are "around the ship" rather than in that one confined space. And when they are running around the ship, they seem to be having a blast.

Video scavenger hunt is a particularly big hit.

My DD12 doesn't spend time there at all- but she wouldn't do things with a large group of kids at home either. It looked like fun when we popped in to check it out- lots of games going on and kids were laughing and goofing off. I think it's better than it seems in pictures. And they had cool activities listed- pizza building, sports, games, crafts.

My daughter loved it on the Wonder. That age they don't seem to mind it darker - they think it is cool. The CM really make it a lot of fun.

My daughter loved the Edge. She made many great friends. They played games, made pizza, and just hung out. She would spent most of the day there.

Both the kids have enjoyed the Edge on both the Magic & Wonder. DS loves going there and playing games with the other kids on the computer.

Glad to hear it. Do you have to make a reservation for them, or can they show up any time?

No reservations needed. They just go whenever it is open and they want to.

My boys loved the Edge. I honestly don't remember it being dark.
