Take the time to talk to the people who serve you. They have interesting stories
Great hamburgers at the grill. Really liked the ventriloquist who entertained a couple of nights.
Great pizza at the lido deck.
Bring binoculars and cool tee shirts and shorts for daytime. You will need them during your excursions!
Make sure you get the wrapped sandwiches from the cafeteria the night before an extended excursion. Our tour to Panama City was 6 hours and we were given a bottle of water and a muffin the whole time. We were not anywhere long enough to go to a restaurant to eat.
The TV channel from the bridge is fascinating.
Take the excursion to Embrara Indian Village in Panama, truly unique. We hired guides in Aruba and Columbia who were wonderful and much less than ship excursion, highly personalized. Make sure they speak English well, though!
On the Coral and Island Princesses there are 2 "secret" viewing areas that are superb. They're at the bow on Decks 10 and 11 ( http://tinyurl.com/89xu386 ). Go through the door that says "No Entry" or some such thing. It's actually okay to do - both of the spots are in full view of the bridge.
Bring a face mask to keep out the bad sewer smells!!!!!
Great hamburgers at the Grill!
3 production shows, an outstanding magician twice, talented pianist, Impersonating vocalist..a true showman!
Pay attention to the naturalist. Extremely helpful. We used the on-ship laundromat which saved a lot of money and made the trip more pleasant. The band "Opus" was great to dance and we followed them from venue to venue. Great ship and crew. I would recommend them!!!
on our deck, 8th, we were 2 rooms from the back of the ship and the entire back is a balcony which very few people use. Great place to see on both sides of ship! Not sure how many decks have this but more than just ours! Also love the covered individual balconies.
Burgers and pizza on the Lido deck are the best food items they have.
visit Lloyd the bartender by the grill for great drinks. visit the smiling woman at the ice cream bar. book a mini suite for a bigger bathroom and shower
The deck chairs on deck 15 may be available when all others are occupied.
I really did like channel 40 with the maps showing the ship's location.
Take advantage of the 2 different Bogo times for drinks. We would order 4 and get them to only open 2 and bring the extras to our rooms for the next day. Saved alot of money that way. Guys be sure to have long sleeves if you want to go into the dining room on formal night. Long sleeve shirt is ok.
I feel that you cannot go wrong with a balcony cabin.
Lido deck ice cream and pizza bar good. Servers were really nice. Also the bar and sandwich place outside the casino has real good snacks.
