Don't wait in line at the Lido for the Mongolian Wok. It takes forever, but the food is good. Get to the lounge for the late night comedy act 20 minutes early--always standing room only.

make sure you eat some nights at the steakhouse.. and italian restaurant... the more you participate the more you will like it... don't be shy.

Lido deck has shortest lines for breakfast at the omelette station. Discounts are offered on spa services throughout the cruise and are well worth every penny.

The Plaza Café and Salad Bar were great. I loved the turkey wraps and the patio atmosphere getting grilled hot dogs and hamburgers.

Definitely spent the money to use the Spa 9 facilities. It is limited to about 50 people and the cost was $125 (it may vary per cruise). Several steam rooms, large whirlpool, and internally heated tiled reclining lounges. Very relaxing.

The window seating on Lido deck for breakfast is a GREAT way to start your beautiful day! And the staff bring you extras while you enjoy your leisurely meal - like fresh coffee & juice and croissants.... LOVEd all the fresh fruit each morning.

As soon as you get on the ship study the layout.

Familiarize yourself with the ship to make sure you are able to do the activities that are most important to you. If you want to be in an adult only area, make sure to visit the serenity deck.

Bring instant coffee, unless you like REALLY, REALLY strong coffee. Bring water & soda, they are very expensive on ship.

We have been on 6 cruises and never watched the movies at night on the big screen. Do watch if you get the chance. They are a great way to relax in the afternoon and they usually have really good movies.

The variety of the food on the Lido deck and main dining rooms was excellent, including the Indian food. We never felt the need to try any of the specialty restaurants. There was a place that always sold desserts that we did purchase from a few times. The ice creams and cakes were exceptional.

Nice trip but customer service lacked for me

I recommend for all coffee drinkers to fill out the form to have coffee delivered first thing in the morning right to your room. Gives you a chance to wake up before venturing out.

This ship is so big, be ready to do a lot of walking, well worth the walking, it keeps you in shape after eating all the great food they serve.

Skip the buffet on the Lido. The dining room experience is much nicer!

The day when you stop at Cozumel, be sure to get out of the ship on time to make the most of your stay. There is so much to do here and with prior planning most adventures here are feasible and cost friendly.

Bring some fancy clothes so you can take advantage of the free photography sessions. if you have traveled before and feel comfortable you can negotiate a taxi to an excursion for a reasonable price. we took a taxi to a private beach for $21 per person, it was really nice.
