What A Cruise!!

Sail Date: September 05, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

I have cruised before and this was by far the best so far. I went on this cruise as a birthday present from me to me. Never a dull moment, or did I feel alone in the experience. I had a large ocean view room which I highly recommend. The room was always clean and the staff was on point. I met new friend from the moment I checked in and throughout the cruise met even more. We will keep in touch. I even met a set of twins from a sister ship at one of the ports. I participated in the different events offered on the ship and came out a winner a time or two. The excursions were wonderful and the ports were beautiful, just take plenty of change so you can negotiate. I sat at a table with a different nationality, but never did I feel left out, they even sang to me in Spanish for my birthday and all remember my name from day one. It was well worth every dime spent...I will definately recommend at least one cruise in a lifetime, you will definately be hooked.

Pros: The People... Everyone was so friendly and sociable

Cons: Everything was great...
