This was our first cruise so we have nothing to compare to. We had heard everything under the sun about cruising. I knew it would probably go one of two ways really well or our last. When people say you cant tell your on a ship, you can. The movement is hard to describe it was like a train ride to us you can tell you are on a moving vessel but its not to the point of distraction. The ship we thought was in pretty good condition for its age the décor you could tell was outdated but very clean. The staff were all great and everywhere we went they were trying to help. Leigh kept everyone entertained throughout the cruise. I don't know how he does it. He was going 110% at every activity. Overall we came to the conclusion that we would definitely take another cruise. We would not get a cabin in the rear of the ship (we always felt a shutter in our room) and a balcony is a must. Also we wouldn't bring our children until the are a little older I saw parents with small children that looked exhausted by debarkation. I would definitely take this cruise again.

Good first cruise

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8A 7416
Very clean and we loved the extra large balcony. The only downside was the shutter we could feel from being at the rear of the ship.
