This was our first time on a cruise. We went for our 10th anniversary. It was very nice. We truly enjoyed the people we met and there was plenty of time to just be by ourselves. The shows we did go see were good and in good taste. We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the gym was nice and the personnel were friendly and helpful. The food was mediocre. The dining room food was better than the buffets but the desserts (though beautiful to look at) had little to no flavor. That was a little disappointing for this sweet tooth. Needless to say, we didn't gain the 2#/day average.

Pros: I loved not having a schedule

Cons: The food definitely could have been better

We didn't do any of the cruise tours. The map we got for our bike ride showed us the wrong route and we ended up having to spend more time to get back. Fortunately the rental didn't charge us but they weren't very friendly either.
