I took our first cruise last February... it was Carnival Glory Western Caribbean ... and it too, was way better than we had expected.

We were on the Verandah Deck [7th floor out of 13] and we didnt feel a thing.

Food was outstanding.


and one that i would LOVE to do is the one up into the east coast of Canada. I was checking, and it did seem the one out of Boston was a shorter cruise, where the ones about a week long were out of NY area.

I did! and you guys will too! don't feel pressured to do everything, some of my best times came with just relaxing in my room or on the deck having the "drink of the day" (or two) in the sun!!
The more rested you are, the more you can do because you're not flat-out exhausted! I didn't even drink or eat as much as I thought I would. I had lots of energy when it came time to see the ports. You don't want to over-extend yourselves. That's the biggest tip I can offer! (now that I'm a pro! ) You don't even have to go to dinner every night, I had a small dinner on deck and then watched the on-deck movie on the jumbo-tron from the jacuzzi!! it was great!!

that sounds like a really nice cruise! I think I want to do an Alaskan one next, but one that I can combine with time on land to explore the wildlife and parks, etc.
but E. Canada looks beautiful too from what I've seen in magazines, travel shows, etc.

It is gorgeous country. We used to make port calls there when I was in the Navy. I would love to take the Alaskan as well, but I have friends who live just outside of Anchorage, so it would be much cooler just to go visit. My favorite discovery program is "Deadliest Catch" and if I could go out with them for just a couple days, that would be a life experience!

wow! I don't know if I could hang with those "Catch" guys, but I sure will be ready to eat anything they bring onboard!! I'll be under deck with the steamer ready! ha!
You're right about Anchorage, I could just stay there on vacation and take a small ferry cruise in the harbor or something, that would be nice too!
