3 of 3 Best Cruises for First Timers
"Let me tell you...if it is your first time cruising, like it was ours, this is the cruise you want to be on. First off, you don't feel like you're on a ship. It's clean and the interior is beautiful, kudos to the architecture team! Rooms are spacious, new and cleaning is done thoroughly."
