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.

The Lido deck have continuous food daily and offered a variety of food. Excellent.

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.

Go to the informational meeting if this is your first cruise. So much info!!!

-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..

do not sail on the Carnival Victory

Don't book too early. I lost nearly $300 because my rate code didn't allow refunds as the price dropped. It's almost worth just waiting until you're within 90 days of the cruise to book if you can. Another tip would be eating in the main dinning room prior to and/or during disembarkation. Enjoy the cruise and food until the very last minute!

Order the scallops as an appetizer on the 2nd night. AWESOME!! A room at the back of the ship will get you to all the food places with a quick elevator ride. The serenity deck is not so serene since it is so close to the main pool deck, so if you want real quiet, go to Deck 10 at the back of the ship (right over Pirate Pizza). No loud music, no kids getting on the slide, very peaceful.

This is a really fun ship and the cruise director is very entertaining. But bring lysol in a can to disinfect surfaces in rooms, maybe some bug spray for around the bed. Also don't wear white; we have terrible stains on our white/light clothing from sitting on dirty surfaces.

It's an older ship, pools are small and there are not as many, lunchtime is a pain because of the crowds and the quality of the food

It's fun place to be!

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.
