I have cruised on the Galaxy twice in the past year. My ex-boyfriend was (is) a waiter on the Galaxy ship. It is a beautiful ship and the itinerary is great. I found the crew to be exceptional. I met many wonderful, fun people on both trips. In fact, I visited Holland and Germany this past summer on an invitation from a gentleman whom I dined with each evening and his wonderful family. We all still remain in contact with each other through email and phone calls.
I was a skeptic about cruising until my Mother talked me into going on a cruise with her 4 years ago through the Panama Canal. I have loved it ever since. If you have never done it, I highly recommend it. If you have, then you know how wonderful it is.
If you wish any further info, contact me and I will be happy to provide it. If you do cruise on the Galaxy, you may wish to request an excellent waiter (my ex-boyfriend). If he is still on the ship, his name is Cesar and he is from Colombia. He will take good care of you , I can assure you.
Congratulations on your marriage and I wish you happy cruising and a wonderful life together.
