I love to read reviews from people that have sailed their first cruise that are positive. So many new cruisers go on a cruise expecting to be treated like they are staying in Trump Towers just to find in many cases it is more like staying at the Marriott and post negative reviews! Glad you had a great first cruise and even more glad you proved yourself wrong :)  Best of luck on your next one because it sounds like you are hooked like the rest of us ;)   Bon Voyage.....
