So, myself and my boyfriend went on our first cruise. We live in D.C and we drove to my uncles house in Jacksonville. We embarked at the Jacksonville port on Sept 22nd, 2014. After I booked this cruise and started to view the reviews I was a little discouraged. The reviews were pretty bad. After getting on this ship I will never listen to people and their over obsessive complaints again! This was by far the best vacation I have ever gone on. I did not have to lift a finger on this trip. They clean up everything after you, from your room all the way down to the plate and cups you have used. I was overly impressed by the food especially the food in the dining room. Amazing food! The all adult serenity deck is a must if your over 21. Two hot tubs and lots of chairs and umbrellas. The Lido deck was always Poppin, always something going on. I cant see how anyone can ever say they got bored on this cruise. They must have a hell of a life off the boat cause I did more on that boat in 2 days then I do at home in a month. From shows, to the casino, and the mingling on the Lido deck it was fun the whole time. All ill say is dont come on a cruise and be a ass. Its easy to meet people and make it the time of your life rather then sit around and be unhappy the whole time. I met so many sweet people that my boyfriend and myself connected with.Also i dont have kids but I dont think this is a vacation I would like to be bothered with younger kids. Teens are ok if they have a buddy but this is def, a grown and sexy trip. All in all if you want a fun filled trip with a once in a life time experience you have to take a cruise. Whatever line or fleet you decide to go one make it a GREAT one. Your on this boat with total strangers that you will more then likely never see again LIVE IT UP!!! Dance on tables and make a time you will never forget. It was my first cruise, but not my last.

Best Vacation Ever!

Cabin Review

Interior Upper/Lower
Cabin 1A r231
Room was nice, if you smoke heavy get a balcony room if not you will spend lots of time on the lido deck. However, this was my first cruise so I got a basic room. Space was great and I enjoyed it way more then people said I would. If you dont smoke this is a great room to save you some money to spend on other things while you vacation.
