Don't sign up for the spa / thermal suite. Small pool, small locker rooms. Much better on NCL

Check out the Taste Bar. Great for a quick little bite while walking through the ship, without having to go to the buffet.

Bring a tray of cups of water and lemonade to your room so you don't have to pay for bottled water

Buffet dining is far tastier than the main dining rooms. Don't hesitate to fork up the extra $35 at the pinnacle steakhouse. Enjoy the natural beauty of st. Thomas, and the rich history and colonial architecture of old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Take an excursion at grand Turk, not much to see at port.

To travel from aft to fwd the easiest way I found was to drop to 2 deck walk the length of the hall and return to the deck you want , some decks have no thru acess , also good way to avoid the smoky casino area .

The grill has great food and the grandchildren loved having pizza and ice cream when ever they wanted. The Steak house is delicious!

Don't waste your time on any of the shopping or port seminars, it's all a soft sales pitch and lacks any quality info.

The Lido deck is the best choice for breakfast if and only if you are an early riser. Otherwise the lines are unbearably long. Room service is a good idea for breakfast but portions are small. If you want breakfast for two people, order enough for four. For prompt delivery order the night before.

Take some time a week before embarkation day to study the lay out of the ship to help navigate the ship. If you're not a smoker, I would use deck 6 to go forward to avoid the casino. Unfortunately, the coffee shop is next to the casino keeping us from it.

In Puerto Vallarta, Use Uber. The taxis are more than twice the price.

Don't purchase internet service. It is extremely poor and expensive. We received numerous apologies in writing during the trip, but that doesn't make it alright. It is a product that should never have been offered and refunds were not available after purchase.

Enjoy relax and use the spa and gym everyday. Treat every staff member with kindness and do not over eat.

From MeetOnCruise iPhone App: Don't let pink black silver decor overwhelm you. Gold objects on ceiling of Gold Pearl MDR are not eggs-they are pearls. Walk the ship after dinner to burn off the warm chocolate melting cake. Try something that you don't normally eat at home.

From MeetOnCruise iPhone App: Visit the Our House sports bar. Glenn the bar tender was the best crew member that I have met. He is such a great person to chat with about just about everything.

Get to "anytime" dining early. Lines become longer the later you go.

The best suggest I can make is if there is a line you it is well worth waiting for your food. They did the best they could with the amount of guest they had to deal with! Job well done staff!
