Go see the shows! Don’t put too much food on your plate and be one of those people that leave food wasted on your table. If you like something you can always go back for more.

Loved the Lido deck for breakfasting & lunch, although the omelet & Mongolian wok lines are long they are worth the wait. Look for the burrito spot, it's a gem worth looking for. DO NOT miss the formal dining room, the food is amazing. Lobster, tiger shrimp, prime rib, & more.

Have more than pizza available for late night machines, and keep a beverage machine open with ice available.

We recommend using the "serving" breakfast option : it means a wait for your food, but you get fresh eggs. On our cruise it was in the Washington Dining room from 7.30-9.30am. We almost never did the buffet line after the first day except returning to the ship. The burritos were also quite good.

Plan to do somethng in San Juan prior to boarding the ship being that you leave at 10:00pm there is alot of down time if you get board early.

Go to the Serenity zone and sit in the hot tub after your excursions and watch the ship leave port from there with a cold drink in your hand.

Balcony room on Verandah deck was great -- 8249. Close to elevators but not so close that you could hear them. Give acupuncture a chance!

We went to the Dining area for breakfast most mornings, but should have checked out the Lido deck for breakfast more often. They had a larger variety of food and you could make your own omlette. The dining room was more limited.

Enjoyed dinner in the dining room. The staff was great.
