Get a stateroom near the back of the ship, and close to elevators. You'll be just a few steps from most everything except the Caribbean Theater.

if you are taking a small 3 nights cruise with a day out on any port, its better to save on cabin with lower price -inside or ocean view. You hardly would have time to enjoy a suite or balcony in such short time space.

We were in the center of the ship right near the atrium...always pretty noisy, but easy to get everywhere.

We got a room on the middle of the boat near the bottom because I read that you wouldn't feel the rocking as much there and it was very convenient. It was right next to the elevator so it was easy to get to anything on the boat and the movement of the boat was less noticeable there.

Adult pool at the stern (back) of the ship was the best! Great bar staff and yummy buffet items, as well.

If you play cards go to customer service and get a few free decks of cards.

-Bring a sweater for the nighttime, it might get chilly until you get the party started, especially if you have a balcony -If you can, get to the dining room as early as possible, as you will get the best service and you will get out earlier and have more time to have fun and see the entertainment

Mediterranean buffet for breakfast and lunch, tons of undiscovered seating upstairs with lots of windows too. Deck 5 is only deck that you can go front to back of boat without changing floors. We would take the room corridor on deck 7 from our room to the back of the ship and down the stairs to the pacific Dining room. Faster and less traffic. Take stairs and forget the elevators when you can.

UNDERPACK.....UNDERPACK!!! If you have to get some stuff laundered there is self-serve launderettes on board or you can send it to be done...and this wasn't very expensive. For $10 or so I got 3 or 4 outfits washed folded and delivered to my room....it really saves a lot of room in the suitcase..

Deck 10 was same deck as pool and just a short stairway from food.

Those back corner balconies are the way to go if you don't mind having a smaller room.

Don't let an "inside" cabin [put you off. That's what we had this time and for the amount of money we saved, we'll do it again. We were not in the cabin much.

Remember, If your are going to anytime dining, go down to deck 3 in the glass elevators. cross the main lobby and enter just aft of the stair case. The only way in to the lower ding room is from the main lobby on deck 3.

Be sure to thank all crew members as they just don't hear how important they are to the overall experience!

If you order from room service, don't hesitate to order from the "pay extra" page. The value is far greater than the extra you pay. Same way with dinner. If you don't see what you want on the featured menu, order from the $20.00 menu. The value received far exceeds the extra cost.

Buffet in the back of ship is better then the stations by the pool. Omelette station was better for breakfast then the stations near the pool. Deli station was good. Gratuities are rolled into every drink you buy. Carnival puts gratuities on your bill of $60 per person for room staff.
