Don't rush to dinner on the first night m- there will be a line. Go about 5-10 minutes late. Other nights were fine. Do not miss dining in the formal dining rooms at night as the food and service is top notch. We did self debarkation but had to wait for an elevator for about 20 minutes.
Be sure to make reservations for any specialty restaurants you want ahead of time, or as soon during the cruise as possible. They fill up quickly. Cherry on Top now has ice cream sandwiches with various types of cookies in addition to the sundaes - they're really good and large. If you want a seat to any of the adults-only comedy shows, arrive 30+ minutes early. Sign up for mixology classes/martini tastings at the Alchemy Bar on embarkation day. They aren't heavily advertised but they do fill up.
Be prepared that it is a very large ship. There are small bars that people don't seem to use like the Havana Bar. It has comfortable seating ,great bartenders,and a good place if you want a quiet drink. Later it has good music too.
