We,too, had a first cruise on another line that was a disappointment but it was such a great learning experience for this middle aged couple! We are booked on three RCCL cruises between Jan-18-2009 and Jan-2010 because they are wonderful to deal with by phone, have promptly given us credits when there were rate changes and patiently answered our many questions without ever making us feel that we were really stupid. They have guided us to the best cabins for money spent and worked with us on excursions. We knew upfront that the specialty restaurants would have a cover charge,that alcoholic drinks are not cheap and that most all people serving the public work best for the people who treat them with respect and cooperation. Maybe you should look at another venue if cruising is not for you. One word of advice, though: A smile goes a long way, use it more than the sour attitude you seem to have and you might be surprised at the results.
