Having never been on a cruise before, I was not sure what to expect. I'm happy to say it was better than my expectations. The ship was huge and there were many things to do and to see. Our stateroom was clean, quiet and very nice. The crew on the ship was great and really took care of us. I liked the adults only section on the back of the boat. This gave us a place to relax without kids being around.
