Take advantage of the omelette station; great stuff. Lido deck is great for all meals - provides flexibility and good food. Loved Guy's Burger Joint and the Bluelguana Cantina. Don't miss the Alchemy Bar - best on the ship! The EA Sports bar is a great place to meet like minded friends.
You have to try "Dinner with the Chef", It is to die for, Just don't eat the entire day before you go, as you will be very full when you are done eating. Also, be very sure of your tours on shore, Make sure you understand everything before you sign up.
Purchase the Faster to the fun card.. It gives you priority boarding and you get to bypass much of the lines. You also get to wait in a special area with beverages and snacks if the ship boarding is delayed.
Try to avoid cabins towards the front of the ship on deck 8. It's directly under lido deck. You hear the chairs being moved at all hours. Try to get to the restaurant around 5:45 if you choose anytime dining. The line gets long pretty fast. Get to the comedy shows early. Seating is limited.
Never go to the lido deck for breakfast, VERY LONG lines. We either ordered room service or went to the Posh restaurant for a more sit down breakfast very YUMMY too. Buffets seemed to close to watch out for the times...
Carnival should offer a smokers/and a non-smokers side so that when we pay extra for a suite/balcony- we can enjoy it!!! we had chain smokers for neighbors- not so good. The Ocean suite is great though - 3 people perfect!!! and a big bathroom/compared to regular rooms.
