Great advice! I leave on the Dream in May. Can not WAIT! I was a little worried on my first cruise, just because I'd never cruised before, but more than anything I was excited. When we got back to our home port, I didn't want to get off the ship! Sadly I can't do more than one cruise per year as hubby doesn't get vacation at his work, but...mom in law and I might have to book something in between since I DO get vacation at my work ;)
And seriously, people complain about the food? If you don't like what you're getting at one place, go to another. God knows there's plenty to choose from.
IluvBig Ships, have fun on your first cruise!
Oh how I wish May would get here!
