10 things I wish I’d done differently on my first cruise, from choosing a better room to reserving shows in advance

I’ve traveled by car, bus, train, and plane, but boats of any kind were completely new to me until April, when I went on my first cruise to the Caribbean for a reporting trip.
I embarked on a seven-night voyage on the largest cruise ship, Royal Caribbean’s Wonder of the Seas. We sailed to Roatán, Honduras; Cozumel and Costa Maya in Mexico; and Royal Caribbean’s private island in the Bahamas.
While it felt surreal to be on such a large vessel in the middle of the ocean, I made some mistakes that made my trip more expensive and less enjoyable than it could have been. I learned that cruising wasn’t my preferred vacation style. But if I had avoided these mistakes, I would have had a better time.
