Just got back from the best cruise we have ever taken

Felton10 thought this was worth mentioning said

And I didn’t even get off the ship (wife and daughter did). If anyone has questions on cruises be happy to answer. Don’t claim to be an expert by any means but our first cruise was over 50 years ago-cabin (if you could call it that) was on the same level as the crew’s cabins and when the bunk beds were down-the bathroom was bigger.

Fast forward 50 years and through a little bit of luck and being at the right place at the right time, our cabin was a penthouse suite for the last 2 cruises for which we paid less than half the original rate. The perks and the treatment was what made those cruises so enjoyable.
