Chose cruise mainly due to the price and it being a cruise line that we haven't been with before. The biggest disappointment was the number of children on board the ship. The children were very badly behaved, loud and unruly. Lots of ... Read more

That was my first cruise ever and I did not know what to expect. After reading some bad reviews I was a bit concerned as I am very fussy about cleanliness and service so my expectation was not very high. I was on the Aurora package and I ... Read more
