A week ago today, my wife and I took our first cruise to celebrate our anniversary. We sailed from Charleston to Nassau and back over the course of five days. I have to admit, my expectations were really low based on horror stories I have heard from others but we really enjoyed it.
Our room was on the stern, right in the center of the ship. The room was far from tiny and we had a huge private outdoor terrace/balcony with a tremendous view of the ship's wake as we sailed along. We spent a lot of time just relaxing on the balcony, watching the wake as the water changed color from dark green in Charleston harbor to deep blue in the Atlantic to blue-green in the Caribbean.
