First time cruisers, so consider the source.
By far the best vacation we've ever had. Once the dust settled from embarkation and the muster drill, the cruise was nothing short of fantastic. The service was truly unbelievable. The food was never worse than good, and often was great.

I'm not sure the expense of the balcony was worth it. We were deck 7, midship, port. Thus we saw great sunsets on the way home. But the dividers between the balconies are so thin that we could hear every conversation our neighbors had. It was so annoying it deterred us from going out on the balcony when the neighbors were out. When we did go we whispered so we wouldn't be equally annoying. But it wasn't our neighbors' fault. They weren't being loud, let alone rude or inconsiderate.
We were advised to board the ship about one hour before the boarding window closed. Let the bulk of the people board and let the lines die down, then simply walk on. Well, we didn't heed that advice, but I wish we would have. We were also told to pace ourselves with the food. Thankfully we did that.
