What a delightful "first" experience! In 1992 my husband and I went to Hawaii and stayed on a ship to cruise five of the islands. This was a much smaller ship and I personally stayed sick most of the time of our beautiful trip.....and quite frankly, never had the desire to set sail since....and now 21 years later just got back from my first "big ship" cruise and it was truly wonderful. A little rocky on the first day but settled in for a very smooth ride, beautiful sunny skies, and balmy breezes leaving sleet and the colder January weather of home behind....felt truly pampered, enjoyed delicious food and entertainment...great experience...thanks Royal Caribbean!
