So this is my first cruise. Overall it isnt horrible. However, if you want a peaceful cruise this is not it. Unbelievably crowded and people saving lounge chairs for hours. Good luck finding a spot to sit and relax. Also, parents think since they are on a cruise most aren't watching their kids and letting them do whatever. Honestly with the amount of unattended kids and Crowdedness has made this trip kind miserable. I recommend a smaller cruise line if you want to relax. Futhermore the noise is unbelievably loud. You have to scream to your friend. It is like they speakers and mics at full volume. However, as far as the staff, they have been wonderful. They are very friendly and informative. However, I could have dealt without constantly being asked if I want my picture taken. I was also told the food on the cruise is amazing. It honestly is average and I can find better food at an actual restaurant.
