Go to the lido deck bar and look for Eko and Suanatara. Tip them well and they will pour heavy and toss drinks your way. Plus they are a great pair of guys!

Never book an aft balcony deck 6. Yes, my fault for booking late and it was the only balcony left. Now I know why.

We had good service in all the dining areas we ate in. We ate breakfast every morning in the Marketplace, had lunch either in the Marketplace or at the Deli and ate dinner in the formal dining room every night. Service was exceptional.

If you get up early, order room service to tide you over until the lido or mdr opens.

Arrive at the formal dining 30 minutes prior to opening, as the line gets long. Don't stress to much about "formal night". It is not too strict if your not wearing sequins. Keep your receipts for any purchases so you won't be surprised, because it is easy to forget.

Get tot he comedy club 30 minutes early to sit. Pre-buy excursions for the easiest time. Lacking a few key toiletries for purchase, so try not to forget them. Be sure to explore the whole Lido deck, there are several options! The serenity deck is SUPER comfy, but fills up quick!

From MeetOnCruise iPhone App: Go at least 20 min early to shows in the showtime lounge as seating is very limited and goes fast!

To cut down on your liquor bill dont forget to use RUM RUNNERS. They are not detected and its a great way to cut liquor bill $$$$$

The ship is huge and you will get turned around -- a lot. Even after a week on board we were constantly going the wrong direction and felt like a couple of salmon. You get used to it though and if you aren't too embarrassed to ask, the crew will cheerfully straighten you out.

We liked the variety of breakfast choices. I had the oatmeal and my husband likes that they would make his eggs over easy. The only thing missing was a hotter salsa. Need to have some fresh jalapeño peppers or at least a real home made salsa. So many choices that it's best to know what is

The dining room experience was amazing. We tried a lot of dishes that we had never eaten such as shark.

My favorite ship. Love the design of the ship with lots of extra space on deck 5.

The casino is not good to hang around it smells awful.

If you can't find something to do it is your own fault. There are constant activities.

If you need to avoid the smoke from the casino, use deck 4 to go from aft to forward (or the otherway).

we have cruised many times and find if you choose early dinner you get a better seat for the evening show. Alot of times choosing later dinner you miss 1/2 the show.
