First time and won't be the last!

Sail Date: September 05, 2009

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our first cruise and didn't know what to expect. There were some things that i would do differently on the next cruise. I would open a cash sail and sign account instead of having it linked to my bank account because they take it out of your account regardless whether you pay it in cash. So i actually paid for my spending twice and have not been reimbursed in my account yet. But other than that it was great! We had an outside suite with a balcony and i believe that is the only way to go. The staff was great! Also make copies of your initial booking with because what i was told by cruise experts was that i would get fun cash credit added to my sail and sign account and did not. It was never added. But had i made a copy of the original booking then i would have been credited.

Pros: Food

Cons: kids up all hours running down halls and on deck.
