Sherry has cruise news: 

We're taking our first family cruise in 2018 and need help with selecting a balcony stateroom. The wife and I usually get an inside stateroom but with four of us, we're gonna need more room. I'm wading through a dozen different balcony room categories. How do I know which one will be big enough? We're torn between Oasis and Harmony of the Seas. - Thomas, Davenport
