Apr 14th 2007 10:21PM I went on my first cruise last summer and it was to Alaska. For those of you worried about druken stupors running around and loud kids, I was a worrier too and I am only in my twenties (young twenties, I'm such an old person at heart when it comes to noise). We took a Holland line boat and it was awesome; nobody was bumping into me spilling their drinks (even when the ship rocked a bit) and I didn't have to endure smoke being blown into my face or loudness from room parties. So, don't let that hold you back, cruises are great, and you don't have to eat everything they give you to the person who says they are for people who gain 15lbs on vacation. I myself went to the gym room they had every morning (beautiful view) and there is a deck around the whole ship you can run along. It's just a matter of controling YOURSELF and if you can't, then I can see why you'd be worried about eating too much (haha!).
I personally stayed away from the railings as much as possible (when we got to the iceburgs I just had to get closer to get good pictures instead of the backs of heads) and it was fine.
So yeah, unless you like the thrill of standing outside during high winds and rocky seas, or want to get a better look at something by leaning over the rails, then it is a bit hard to fall over. We also had a balcony, loved it, used it, it was actually the place I felt safest to lean on, ha.
