I never went on a cruise before this one. It was a really nice trip. I would say that a Royal Caribbean cruise is a good one to try for your first, because of all the nice features you can find onboard.
We took the Junior Suite for a room, so it was pretty nice. I honestly expected it to be a little bigger, but it was big enough I suppose. We didn't spend too much time in the room, so it wasn't a huge issue for us.
The food was good, the room was good enough, and the features on the ship were plentiful. We especially liked the shows at night - they were nice.
We initially decided to take this cruise because it leaves from Port Canaveral (round trip). We live in Orlando, so the ride wasn't too far. It was definitely worth the trip and we definitely plan to book our next cruise soon.
