I never liked the idea of going on a big cruise ship, and the first one I took was with Costa Cruises on the Carribean and it was terrible. But then I did a Mediterranean Cruise on Norweigan Epic and thought it was great. I think if you find a cruise line you like and go to destinations you have never been before you could have a great time. On both of these cruises I had balcony suites, but if I were to go on another cruise I might try an inside cabin to see if I like it and to save money for more trips. I have done a couple of interesting cruises on much smaller boats, a Nile River cruise in Egypt and a Galapagos Islands cruise.
