My disappointment with this first cruise is caused by me taking SEVERAL things for granted and not doing enough investigation to prepare myself . I felt lost all the time on the ship and was bored - nothing to do that interested me, Before you go - check out everything and don't take the smallest thing for granted. A cruise is NOT LIKE any other vacation you have ever had. Casino full of cigarette smoke - lots of happy loud children and tons of free lunchroom quality food. Ship employees extremely accommodating and friendly. Lots of couples and groups - making single seating sparse. I 'MIGHT" take another one , but will use this experience as a guideline and will be better prepared if a next time happens.

Check drink policies before you book . Ship is huge - prepare to be lost and devise plan to find other parties if you get separated. Very limited shopping - don't leave things at home that you might need.
