The Hot tubs in the adult pool area are quiet and not busy in the evenings! Grab a free icecream cone by the main pool during the afternoon!

My tip: go to the sauna and the steam room as much as you can. Both are free and make you feel great.

This ship will be renovated with a couple of new restaurants and activities. The additional amenities will definitely make this ship better than ever.

Huge whirpool in gym area is less crowded than pool whirpools and nice. Use caution booking any interior cabin with window facing the promenade as they do loud parties in promenade that won't let you sleep.

Don't go to Johnny Rockets near (any port of call) boarding time - it'll be crazy! The whole ship is crowded on sea days. Head to dinner earlier than early if you want to catch an elevator! Build up some endurance to take the stairs often.

Adult pool packed by 10:00 am - start day early if you want to workout, get breakfast and go to pool. We enjoyed going to the main dining room for breakfast on days we had time. Go to the rock climbing wall and skating rink at the beginning of open climb or skate time - no lines.

Ask to stay on floor SIX or SEVEN. Breakfast/Lunch is always on deck 11 & dinner is always on deck 3, 4 or 5. If you get stuck with a long elevator wait, you'll want to walk because it's a max of only 4 flights up or down. BTW, we're older & overweight....we're not teenagers. But 4 levels is doable.

The hot tubs were quiet in the early morning. I worked out in the gym every morning and afternoon so I could eat guilty free. I even came back weighing one pound less because of the gym workouts - and still ate what I wanted. At 54 years old I can't do that at home.

Make sure you go to the Promenade and get the pizza and sandwiches; best kept secret on the ship!!!!! Plus the frozen yogurts at the pool are delicious!

If you put a credit card on file, but then decide to settle your account with case, make sure they don't try to still charge your credit card.

Find the nearest bathroom outside of your stateroom if you share. To avoid frustration at the elevators, ride them up and then ride them back down so you aren't faced with full elevators when they come to your floor. Ask for ketchup packages before you get your food because they always run out.

The service went beyond our expectations! We throughly enjoyed dining in the beautifully decorated Strauss dining room.

Johnny Rockets was the best, all the ships should have one. Just like when we were kids.

Plan your shore excursions early because they fill up fast or each port will have taxis that can take you anywhere on the island. Bring clothing to dress up for evening activities. Professional pictures are taken every night and can be purchased the next day.
