My husband and I are planning to take a cruise with another couple to celebrate both of our 10 year anniversaries. However, none of us has ever been on a cruise before. Our friends want to keep the trip to around 5 days and are interested in visiting Cozumel/Belize on the Royal Caribbean. However, I am a bit claustrophobic, prefer fewer people, and a more mature setting, and just looking at pictures of the RC boats makes my blood pressure rise. Would I be making a huge mistake to take a RC cruise? Any other suggestions? Thanks for any input!
I know I'm really late to the game, but my boyfriend has the claustrophobia and hates crowds. We were on the Liberty last year and yes, there are a lot of people, but never felt like we were on top of each other. We did have a cabin, and I have been on an inside cabin before. If you are a mover and a shaker, and like to do activities, lay by the pool, excursions, etc, you wont be in the room a lot. He likes to nap, and the sound of the ocean is soothing, so he enjoys the balcony. I can't speak to other cruise lines, be it I've only been on RCCL, but I have never been disappointed. There will be a few moments where you can "feel the amount of people" but keep the eye on the prize, and enjoy the experience of the cruise.
