So, you dreamed.... you planned..... you sailed, and, we want to know how fabulous it was! What were the highlights, and, was there anything that you would do differently for your 2nd cruise?
Since you are not a newbie anymore, what's your best tip ?

My best tip would be to arrive a day early at your departure city. I think my secound would be to buy trip insurance. We had a blast on our first cruise a 14 day to Hawaii on the Sapphire with a balcony. Are next cruise will be with Carnival. We decided to try Carnival because its alot cheaper The only thing we did not like about are first cruise is that it was to quite at night, I was not used to all the pampering in the restuarants.After the first time the waiter put my napkin on my lap for me that was the first thing I did when I first sat down so he would not have to.And when he came around and started scraping all the crumbs off the table i thought that he thought I was being a pig until I seen him doing that to all the tables.We have not been to that many fancy restuarnts.
