Review summary

This was my first cruise, and I loved it! I was so excited, I did not sleep the first night and well into the second day. I cruised with seasoned vets and their friends, so I had help and guidance. Getting the layout of the ship was tough at first, but I got into the swing of it.

First cruise and my friend prepped me for a small cabin and tight quarters. It was not bad at all and had great service.
