If you wake up and can't go back to sleep take a walk. You can check out all areas of the ship in peace with no passengers or crew around. Really get to take your time and explore

This is a very large ship......keep the ship map and daily activities list with you at all times to take advantage of what's happening at all times.

If you like shopping don't miss the 60 minute shopping seminar the sea day prior to stopping in Cozumel. Will save you time, money and direct you to the best stores with the very best merchandise.

Really spend the first 1/2 day at sea looking around the ship to discover what all it has to offer. Don't pre-book any spa treatments, as they continue to reduce the price throughout the cruise. We did the valet parking at the dock and it was totally worth the price.

Get to the pool early and don't go during Spring Break as there were 800 children on the ship for this week

don't sit in your room. Find something to do, check out all areas of the ship after dinner, find something you would enjoy. as you set sail go to the solarium and find a deck chair along the glass. Breakfast, definitely hit the dining room atleast once. RELAX, let Royal carribean take care of you.

One other couple told me that you are allowed to bring up to two bottles of wine on-in your carry on. Not your suitcase. I had no idea, you may want to confirm this but we most definitely would have done this if we had known. Check out Captain Marvin's adventures in Cozumel. Very fun

Easy ship to get around in. The open seat dining for lunch is not our cup of tea. We prefer a table for 2. Bad experiences with large groups at the table previously.

Rent an electric car in Key West to get around easier and see more of Key West. Make sure to go to the opposite side of Cozumel to see the beautiful water and beach.

the ONLY thing i really have to say outside of this being an AWESOME trip is that red onions have NO business in an Italian caprese salad :) (just sayin) :)
