I will be going on my first cruise in November with a friend...and I do not know which cruise line to pick. Before researching I was only aware of Carnival and RCI. Now I am also interested in the Norwegian fleet..... When I "googled" first time crusing an article came up saying that Norwegian would be good for first timers because of their freestyle way cruising...I am interested in participating in shows, dancing, and maybe some excursions if they are not too expensive....so I would LOVE to hear what everyone's oppinion is for what cruise line to pick for a couple of first timers. Thanks for any advice!!
