Review summary

I went with 5 other people. My 1st cruise. It was all confusing at first, but I caught on quickly. Food was Excellent. The on board activities was very fun. We did not do any excursions on this cruise. We just took advantage of the beaches at each port. Did some shopping. Stopped at a place and had a few drinks with my crew. Loved it all !!
