I just went on my first cruise, and it was the most fabulous experience ever! Our room was huge, with a balcony and a king size bed....the bathroom on the other hand, was very tiny and could really only fit one person at a time in there. Other than the super tiny bathroom, the ship was amazing! There was a basketball court, rock climbing wall, several pools and hot tubs, miniature golf, a movie theater, an ice skating rink, a shopping mall....I mean this place was crazy big! Our ports were Nassau, Bahamas and Ocho Rios, Jamaica. I'll just say this about them...the people are somewhat desperate and many of them are incredibly rude (especially in Jamaica). Everywhere you turned there was someone looking for a handout. I guess living in paradise isn't all that I imagined it would be. Nassau, we just walked through town and did a little shopping in the straw market and ate some conch fritters. The weather was gorgeous, but the town was looking a little run down. In Ocho Rios we took a bus ride through Fern Gully and toured the ancient ruins gardens (which weren't really ancient, just made to look that way) and climbed the Dunns River Falls (which were incredibly treacherous!). Would I ever go back? Maybe, but only if I stayed at a resort that had everything I needed.
