As a first time cruisers, I would have to say the only con that I faced was not being fully educated about gratuities and shore excursions. Every staff member we met went above and beyond and made us feel welcome. The ship is beautiful and there was always something to do and something for every age.
First Time Cruiser
Sail Date: March 01, 2010
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Pros: The amount of activities to do both on and off the ship
Cons: Not really being informed of things before the cruise. As first time cruisers we were a bit overwhelmed.
