We had never seriously considered a cruise, it just always seemed so out of reach. But then some friends of ours had one booked and we looked into it and decided to give it a try. Oh My Gosh! We came home and immediately booked one for 2019 (43 days left!) and another for 2020! We are so hooked!! It was the most wonderful time!! There was so much to see and do. Embarkation was smooth, we had FTTF and got right on the ship and our room was already ready. Luggage was there right on time. Agus was a wonderful Steward and always remembered our names. The MDR had great food, and wonderful entertainment. Michael was our head waiter and he was great! The Havana area was nice for the hot tub, but we really didn't spend much time there, there was always so much going on! I think a regular cabin for less is just fine since we dont mind children and don't really utilize the pools much. In March 2019 we are taking our teen boys on a smaller ship and we will see if we like it as much! Can't wait to go!!

Best First Cruise Ever!
