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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Pack some food for lunch, and hope that you can hold out for dinner! Dinner is the best meal on the ship.

Use the stairs. Much faster than waiting for the elevator. There is also a machine that will break large denomination bills into smaller. $5 is the smallest it gives.

If you want a quite spot to lay out, go to deck 7 to the front of the ship and you will find a door that leads you to the front of the ship. Not many people go there and its nice and quiet during the day, and at night you can see the stars clearer.

Get ready to do a lot of walking as this is a large ship. Know where the elevators are in the center of the ship and try to use them to cut down on a lot of extra walking. You have to pay for everything such as sodas, and drinks.

To beat the crowds for breakfast, get up and go early.

As an early riser, the staff had breakfast out a few minutes early and were very accommodating on the Lido deck. Coffee was always HOT and delicious. We also ate dinner in the Pacific dining room and had a table right on the water at sunset. Magical!

Sunrise at breakfast was a treat. To get to the Pacific Dining Room, go all the way to the high 300's on stateroom levels and take the aft elevator to 3 or 4. Much easier than winding your way through the (smoky casino.)

For free spa fun - go into women's locker room area to check out dry sauna and steam room. Loved those areas. Visited daily!

If you go on the dolphin adventure in Grand Cayman understand that you may not take your camera and the pictures are $40 a piece. Carnival really should put that in when they describe the excursion.
