After almost 7 years traveling and visiting 100 countries I finally embarked one of those big ships I had always been willing to go on. My first cruise was a fact! In Barcelona I went on board the Crown Princess of Princess Cruises and set sail for a 7-day cruise on the Mediterranean towards Rome. As I was extremely excited and wanted to go in with zero expectations, I did not do any research about a what to expect on a first cruise. For you though I wrote this guide with first time cruise tips so you get an idea of cruise do’s and don’ts.
