This was my first cruise and I loved it! The food was wonderful, and the staff was very nice. I had been told that this cruise line catered to senior citizens, which is true. Many of the passengers were 60+ but most were still very lively and fun to talk to. Despite that, there were still people with families and small children, and younger 20-somethings. There was a lot to do on board. It was very relaxing, which was a good thing, since I had been having some strenuous issues in the months prior to the cruise.

The food was amazing. Lots of variety!

Stateroom was a bit small (compared to the hotels I'm used to staying in). We had an inside cabin, which was nice for sleeping in. Many times I would wake up and it was 11 am, but I thought it was 4 am!

There seemed like there was a lot of activities for children and teens. There was also a ton of activities for all other passengers, but I did not attend any of those, so I can't really say how they were.

Plenty of options for excursions, but they did seem to be very pricey.

This was a fantastic trip. I would do it again.
