I did in January of 2012. We went to the Bahamas for 5 days. It was so much fun. I want to go on another soon and might in August.



The cons for me was when we got off on one island we had to take a taxi to the shopping place that everyone goes too and I was nervous the whole time that we wouldn't get back to the ship in time lol. but that was pretty much the only con.



Free food and so much to do :)

We just got back from a 7 day cruise through Alaska. We sailed on the diamond princess and it was amazing. I have no complaints and it was one of the best vacations I've ever taken. The ship was also very kid friendly which helped a lot! It was the first cruise my family has taken so I don't have a lot to compare it to, but my cousins husband works for Holland American cruise lines and I have heard many great things about them too, however she did tell me that their ships are geared more towards an older audience so it might not be as fun for younger families! I hope you get the chance to cruise at some point, it was amazing!

Royal Caribbean cruise line in 2004. They don't go on the same route anymore. But it was Nassau, Bahamas; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Georgetown, Grand Cayman; and Cozumel, Mexico.



Amazing boat, amazing food, amazing islands, amazing people, amazing shops. I didn't run into any cons.

I went for a 10 day cruise in 2005. We went royal Caribbean. We went to Jamaica, grand cayman and a couple other places I can't remember. It was nice. I wish we had more money to do funner excursions but my parents paid as a grad gift for me so i took it. It was definitely fun though.
