The bathroom was still pretty tiny. And the toilets flush like airplane toilets, ha! One thing we didn't anticipate is that there was only one power outlet in the room. So we had to take turns with charging our phones.
When we first got on the ship we had some time before embarking, so we got a little lunch and I took some pictures by the pool we were next to. This is the adult-only only pool and hot tubs. It's the only time this area was empty :).
Here are some things I learned on the cruise:
1. You have to pay extra for internet and even then, it's limited depending on what plan you get.
2. It's totally worth it to buy the "bottomless bubbles" to get cokes when you want them vs. paying ala cart. I'm not sure about the alcohol option, whether it would be worth it or not! I only had one drink while on board because even one drink gives me a headache and I was trying to do everything I could to avoid seasickness!
3. Be prepared for it to be cold sometimes! I only brought shorts, dresses and a swimsuit and it rained the first day and was so chilly!!! Next time I will at least bring a jacket!
4. Even though there was designated smoking areas, it was really smoky! I'm pretty sensitive to smoke so I tried to avoid those areas as much as possible, but sometimes there wasn't a choice.
5. The shows are the cruise were as awesomely cheesy as I wanted them to be. My favorite was the Newlywed show where they played a game with three different couples: newlyweds, married 10 years, and married 50+. It was hilarious.
6. This particular cruise was definitely a party cruise. It wasn't as kid/family friendly as I would like to feel comfortable bringing my kids on. This could very well depend on the cruise itself and other factors. I have a friend who just went with a BIG group of family and her kids loved it.
7. I will definitely cruise again! Honestly, I still probably like land vacations better, but I did really appreciate the experience and want to go again! I had so much fun celebrating my sweet friend!
