We enjoyed brunch in the dining room! Delicious food and so much to eat! Love the round couples deck chairs.....get up early to grab one in the sun! Visit Bob in the piano bar! So much fun!

Be sure to pick up a deck plan for your ship - especially the small ones either at embarkation check-in desk or the front desk on the ship. It will keep you from getting lost. They are small and easy to carry with you.

Get to know the staff by name...they are a great staff that makes the cruise a delightful cruise.

Pick up a casino lanyard & ask them to punch a hole in your Sail & Sign Card. Even if you don't gamble, it's a neat way to keep your card handy around your neck when exiting/reboarding the ship. It keeps your hands free & ensures that you don't drop the card. Guest Services can also punch it.

We always bring a mini/small flashlight..that can be purchased for a couple of dollars...they come in handy because if you are in an inside cabin..it is pitch dark at night and it is ample light to get up and move around the cabin or go to the washroom without disturbing anyone else sleeping.

Find the serenity deck the first day. We didn't find it until the end

If you need a printout of you account statement, use the machine near the front desk. You can avoid the line at the Guest Services Desk & get updates as you need them. It is simple to use.

Check out the Serenity decks on the ship. They are lovely areas that are much quieter than the pool areas - adults 21 & over only.

Go to breakfast early...shorter lines.

The Comedy Brunch is nice if you like to sleep late and like to avoid the craziness of the buffets.

Go to the back of the ship, outside by the pool for most meals. It's the farthest distance from the main elevators so it's less busy. At the ports, get off early. Sometimes other ships come in and you have to wait for them to dock.

Explore the ship right away their is a lot of hidden gems :)

Take a morning or two to enjoy Brunch in the restaurtant instead of always eating at the buffet.

By sure you do not stay in a stateroom under the Lido deck as it may be noisey. Breakfast on Lido is quick to access and delicious. Dine early so you do not miss the shows.

The sit down dining had excellent food and excellent service every night.

I would suggest eating breakfast and lunch in the dinning room if you don't like lines. It is just more relaxing. I don't like lines.

We enjoyed the anytime dining experience. It was fun meeting different people each night

There is always good food available 24/7. The soft serve ice cream is a must.
