Bring your own hand sanitizer and use often. The crew does a good job of keeping things clean for the most part, however the buffet is a free for all and not mandatory to use hand sanitizer before entering any food line like Princess cruise ships. There are some really disgusting people out there that think "their shit don't stink" and want to share their nasty, grimy germs!!

A small quantity of non-alcoholic beverages (i.e., sparkling water, sodas, juice, and milk) packaged in cans or cartons may be brought onboard on embarkation day and must be in the guest's carry-on luggage. A small quantity is a maximum of 12 sealed, unopened cans/cartons of 12 oz each per person.

Do upper deck activies early in trip because of high winds limit usage.

Long lines at the speciality eateries when the buffet is closed, if you want to try those make sure you do while other food options are open. Sometimes the line for pizza was 50 people long!

Other free (included food): Pig & Anchor: on Sea Days. Pig & Anchor also has fees on non-sea days and off lunch hours. Good Food though!!! Deck 11 for Capitana Italia and the Asian rest. for lunch (both included at lunch hours). For dinner you have to pay at these 2 places.

We did not like the way the elevators are set up. The floor was selected from the outside and mans sometimes several floors would be put on the same elevator leaving at least 3 elevators available. Needless to say we had to use the stairs quiet often.

Must try the gelato (on buffet at lunch), a sandwich from the deli station and a burger from Guy's.

Be ready to enjoy a gorgeous ship and don’t pack too much! Do the early embankment and keep your luggage, it’s well planned out and helps the staff.

Elevators are set up different. You have to press the deck number on a screen outside the elevators and it tells you which elevator to get on. We didn't realize that we were supposed to press the deck number again for each number of people with you so the elevators will be more accurate so they won't stop if there isn't enough room!!

Careful on the walking/running track. Pretty narrow

The buffets basically have the same variety of food every afternoon.

Why do people complain that there are too many rowdy children running around unsupervised? Don't cruise when school is out namely June July and AUGUST!!! Go in May or mid-September or October when parents are less likely to remove children from school...

If you are on deck 5 like we were, instead of going to lido for the breakfast buffet, they have a mini buffet in ocean plaza!

Make sure you are not in Family Harbor area. 2416 had noise all day and night above from galley. Bad enough you could not sleep.

Be patient with the new elevator calling system. It works!
