First Time Cruising for Me

My husband is not fond of large crowds so we mainly chose NCL Star because of the smaller capacity. It was also a plus that the interior had been newly renovated. The Star Atrium was impressive from the start. ...

We recommend Curacao. It had great beaches, clear water, warm water and the temperature was not too hot during our cruise. St. Thomas and St. Martin were still recovering from hurricane damage but our beach ...
