Selected this cruise line after much research. We are in our 60's and wanted an experience that was easy, comfortable and well planned. We splurged and went for a Penthouse Jr Suite that turned out to be better than we had expected. Plenty of room for two people to lounge around in with outstanding views from the large veranda. The added perks to a room like this were very fun, they do your laundry (nice to come home with clean clothes) , supply a fully stocked bar daily and the restaurant tables available were outstanding. We are not the most social type of people and found that it was a perfect blend where one could blend in without having to engage unless you wanted to. We were very surprised at the quality of the food available . Healthy choices were always available and this will probably be one of the main reason we return to this cruise line. Another important concept that we were impressed with is how much "everything" is included...no nickel & dimeing here! Wine/beer generously served at lunch & dinner, popcorn at the theater and all amenities though out the ship. This being our first cruise we picked some pretty tame excursions and usually had a great experience, would not be shy about trying more exotic ones next time. A notable point was how clean and well planned this ship was...we came away with the thought that this is exactualy what a cruise should be like...they do virtually everything right. Although it was expensive we both thought that we got our money's worth and are already thinking about where we will go next !!

Amazing experience for a first cruise!
