Well I wish maps of the ship were given ahead of time because even by day 6 I still didn't know where everything was. Otherwise I don't have much advice besides the ship is huge and good luck remembering where every thing is.
Get your show tickets in advance, and when you get on the ship the first day, go to the Customer Service Desk and order your tender tickets, if you are going to Coco Cay Private Island.
Book reservations for dinner prior to cruising and any other entertainment available. Booze pkg a waste. The drinks are expensive and the waiters dont take an order correctly but unless you have 6 or more drinks a day the pkg isnt worth it.
Any time dining is busiest around 6:30 PM try to go earlier or later.
To avoid lines book your shows in advance of your cruise. There is no need to book specialty restaurants early if you eat at an early time. Book Northstar the when you get on the ship

Do as much as you can online before your cruise starts as far in advance as possible. I had everything planned as far as dinner and activities but could not do the iFly or North Star online because they were already at the max reservations online so had to wait in line to reserve.
Do not use Minibar it's a scam. Charged me $111.00 dollars.
Great restaurants to choose from, half are included, other half are speciality restaurants with an extra charge. Make sure to make your dinner reservations at the included restaurants ahead of time, the good times get taken fast. Also, book the popular shows ahead of time, some were reservation.
It is wise to book all dining and shows prior to boarding. It will eliminate waiting. We were fortunate our Travel Agent made all arrangement, which made for a smooth transaction. Book shore excursion prior to boarding. It is easier to cancel then reserving while on ship.
Its a good idea to book everything before boarding
WE HAD TABLE BY THE WINDOW FOR OUR DINNER MEALS AND THAT WAS A DELITEFUL EXPERIENCE. LOVED SEEING THE WAVES AND SUNSET.
Make sure you do your dinner, show and activities reservations online
So much to do, bring the daily program. Make dinner reservations online before you go, but don't stress about it if you need to change on ship, they work very hard to accommodate you. For alone time, there are nice areas on deck five with outside seating.
Everyone expects gratuities even though they are included or charged to your credit card.
