    so me any my wife are planning our first cruise. we want to do one without the kids so we are looking at royal Caribbean ( I hear that is one of the more grown up cruise lines) we decided go big or go home so we are probably going to go on the oasis class boat.
    any secrets, tips, or general things I should know being a cruise newbie?
    we are planning on getting a balcony room overlooking the center boardwalk

    have fun.

    i've been on three cruises, and i didnt like them. they are really decadent! eat too much..drink too much. lots of older guest too.

    i mean the trips didnt suck. for me it was really too much ship-time, not enough time off. you can plan all the day trips, which gets pretty pricey, but they always seemed rushed. that ship is on a tight schedule.

    research how folks are sneaking on booze. fun.

    i jogged alot on the ship and worked out in the gym..and i still gained alot of weight. the food is really endless.

    here's a tip. dont get in a hot tub full of obese women. when they leave, the water level will be at your tit level.

    i'm pretty sure you tip at the end of the trip. in an envelop. the main person splits it up.
