My first cruise was a millions times better than I could have imagined! From the moment we arrived at the Embarkation in FTL, the experience was smooth sailing all the way. Staff was multi-cultural and they were attentive to our every need. Our cabin Steward was beyond caring...he went out of his way to help us and just make our experience all we expected and more. Food was good, Specialty Restaurants were FANTASTIC. The only downside was the coffee served with meals, but once I purchased a coffee card, all was well in the land of Java.

I loved the variety and was pleased with the safety of the food service experience. Hot foods were hot and cold foods were cold. Everything seemed fresh and tasty. No matter your pallet there was something for everyone. The specialty restaurants were mnd blowing, best steak and lobster I have ever had and the service is second to none. Our evening meal other than the two nights we were in the specialty place, we ate all our meals in the Dining room where the food was terrific!!!! Not a single complaint.

We had a mini suite with a private balcony and the room was perfect!!!! I spent many hours on the balcony watching sunrises and sunsets!!

I did not take part in many of the on board activities, we basically used the cruise to recoup from a stressful tax season. We did the wine tasting which was awesome!!

Do the research yourself and book your own or even take a cab, they were a bit pricey and I feel we could have done just as well planning on our own

It was a trip of a lifetime, a dream come true!!!
