1st ever cruise
Since I have had no previous experience cruising, it is impossible to give an OBJECTIVE review, but this cruise exceeded our expectations in every respect except the size of the cabins. We had an F1 cabin with picture window view. The pictures on-line lead us to believe that they were more spacious than was actually the case, but the room was ample since very little time was actually spent IN the rooms. There was SO MUCH to do on board and off that the rooms were used only for sleeping. The wait-staff was EXCEPTIONAL in every respect. Not even allowed to carry used cups and glasses back to the dining areas. The dining room staff exceeded all expectations with regards to our needs and wants. Our staff learned our names and drink preferences during the first meal, and only asked if we wanted to change our usual preference, not what we wished to drink with dessert. (Incidently, there were five of us in the party and they knew each one by name after the first meal.) We were very pleased with our experience and would highly recommend this cruise to anyone. It was VERY enjoyable.
We were, however, traveling with 3 high school seniors on their their Senior Trip, and found some of the entertainment a little too crude and off color for young people, especially the "Battle of the Sexes." As Christians, my wife and I were also offended by the crudity and left.
