To avoid waiting on lines BOOK your shows and dining well in advance.
Be sure to purchase any of the Internet Package; you need it to share your experiences and photos hot while cruising. Yes, book your restaurant reservations and shore excursions ahead of time for some savings and to avoid lines.
Book all activities and restaurants before boarding.
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.
Download the app Royal IQ which is free on the boat. You can track all activities and bookings for dining or shows, which all need to be booked in advance. You can even receive incoming texts without having to pay for Wifi - just can't reply.
Make all of your dinner reservations as soon as you know what you want to do for the week.
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.
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.
i will recommend booking your activities online before you cruise.
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.
Definitely book all you can in advance, and be aware of limited,expensive communications aboard
Avoid this specific ship, as it requires serious overhaul. You would not have the smooth sail that a typical cruise ship provides.
Choose another ship & cruiseline!!
Take advantage of the dynamic dining plan. It makes for an exceptional and affordable dining option.
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
Make all your reservations for anything you can online and do it early as soon as you are paid in full.
I would suggest booking in advanced but the ship doesn't allow u to until ur on board and as soon as ur on board everything is booked up .
