Was 1st cruise I had taken and it was wonderful, beyond any spectations I could have ever had. I felt like I was being treated like a princess. The crew were all just great. Always smiling, greeting me by name and really loving their job.

Review summary

Very impressive. I enjoyed every minute of it and would definitely go again. I would probably do a little more research before I went again so I would be a little more informed, but that had nothing to do with the cruise. I should have done this to know what to expect, but it was a great learning experience.
