This was our first cruise ever! I guess you learn as you go! We found the food to be plentiful and very good! We were told by other cruisers that it did not compare to other ships but we found it very enjoyable! We did not take our teenagers but we're told that there were not enough activities for kids. However we thoroughly enjoyed our first experience.
Our room was very clean and our steward met our expectations! The dining room staff were very friendly and remembered our names after the first night! Even knowing that other cruises could possibly be better, we would do this one over again! We are hooked! Oh, I did not know this, if you see a piece of jewelry or item on the ship you are interested in purchasing, and you see it at one of the ports for a better price, if you can get a quote from the port store and a photo, the ship will match the price. Like I said, you learn as you go!!
