Got bit by the cruise bug when my wife surprised me by booking my first (her second) cruise in 2013, and she's called me obsessed ever since. She bought me an "O.C.D. Obsessive Cruise Disorder" t-shirt to prove it. Living so close to port is especially nice when our annual cruise rolls around. Love getting to meet new people from all over the world while enjoying an amazing vacation. As a Carnival crew member once told me "There are no strangers on a cruise ship, only friends you haven't met yet!"

They say you never forget your first...

Overall a terrific first cruise for me (second for my wife). My wife booked it as surprise Easter getaway. The only downside was we didn't realize it was also spring break for a lot of kids. No issues onboard as a result, but it did mean we were one of 5 ships in port at Nassau. Senor Frog's was standing room only due the ships in port & lower drinking age, but at least it wasn't boring.

Cruise tips

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

Simply breathtaking! The pristine looking beach and bright turquoise water were even more beautiful than we had imagined! It was even more amazing than pictures we had seen.

Nassau, Bahamas

Catamaran/snorkeling excursion was fun. Plenty of fish to see, but according to crew the coral was dying off and not as colorful due in large part to human pollution. Senor Frog's was non-stop entertainment.

Jacksonville, Florida

I'm a little biased since it's my hometown, but Jacksonville Zoo & MOSH (Museum of Science & History) are both great experiences if you have extra time and less than 15 minutes from port. Apparently lots of people like to watch from the top deck as the ship passes under the Dames Point Bridge looking closer to hitting the bridge than it really is. I can't deny the fact that I was one of them.

Being a smaller ship, walk everywhere you can. You'll generally get wherever you're going faster than if you wait on an elevator.
