My wife and I just got back from our first cruise and it was beyond expectations. We are seasoned travellers but not seasoned cruisers. I think it was obvious that we were first timers because we walked around the ship for the first two days with our eyes wide open in disbelief at the grandeur of the ship. The meals were supberb in our opinion. I will try and post more info later but if anyone has any specific questions just let me know. Our ports were Aruba, Caracas, Grenada, Dominica and St. Thomas. I received so much help from this web site before going on our cruise that it is now my turn to answer other peoples questions. I cannot imagine going on the Ocean Princess and not having the time of your life!!!
