My husband and I just went on our first cruise in May. It was pretty awesome!
We felt like there was a bit of a learning curve to navigate everything. Sometimes you have to do things by trial and error and then change it up the next time.
After our first cruise, we would definitely pick different ports. We would probably even change up the departure port. Plus, instead of a 7 day we’d probably try a 5 day. For us and our family, I think that might be best.
For our first cruise, though, we really enjoyed it!
Are you a frequent cruiser or maybe have been wanting to take a cruise? Either way, have you wondered who ranks in the top for Cruise Lines?
