This was our very 1st cruise and it was nothing like the bad reviews I've been reading. The staff was great on all angel's. The only 1 thing i didn't like was once the shop got so far out in sea the television programs would go into Spanish speaking. I will be traveling on another Royal Caribbean ship soon.I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone for a first cruise or a nice short vacation. I have been wanting to take a cruise for a long time, but I was very nervous because I had never been on a boat before and for this long. Everything about this vacation was perfect. The cruise ship staff was amazing. They were incredibly warm and personable. They had great recommendations for excursions and made everything we did really easy.
