Hi all,

I am new here.

Traveling on a cruise had always been my dream. Now finally I have got the opportunity to travel on a cruise. And the best part is that I am traveling on a small ship. I am traveling to New York on small ship cruises. I have heard that traveling on a small ship is a different experience and it is very interesting.

I am going with my friends, we are 5 of us. However, since none of have ever traveled on a cruise before, we have too many doubts and queries. What is dining like aboard? And do we get adult beverages on board? I hope we don’t get bored there. If anyone has traveled on a small ship cruise, please share your experiences with me.

We are pretty excited for this trip and we really hope to have some good time.

Definitely check out Cruise Critic as @Grandma suggested. Wonderful forum about cruising with sub-forums on different lines and for different types of cruising - disabled, families, solo, small ships, etc.
