This was my first cruise, and my husband's too. We booked the cruise last-minute, one week before actually! We had the MOST amazing time. I was pleasantly surprised by the cabin -- a junior suite. Contrary to other reveiws I have read, the balcony was plenty big.

The food was not the best I have ever had, but come on people, what do you expect? It is a boat first of all. Secondly, you are paying (in our case) $1200 per person for 5 nights accommodation, including ALL your meals and snacks. How good did you expect the food to be??? We had lobster and steak and many other nice choices for dinner. The buffet was fine as long as you went earlier rather than later so that the temperature of the food was still good.

The staff was great -- our stateroom attendant was a HOOT! Our waiters were amazing. The spa was fantastic -- best massage I have ever had.

Maybe I am naive because it was my first cruise, but I would do it again in a heartbeat.
