Lido is the only place on the ship that you can get breakfast that is similar to what we eat for breakfast in the US.

Be prepared to be lost since the 3rd and 4th floors don't go all the way from front to back. You need to use the 5th floor to go aft for dinner on the 3rd floor. Don't plan on a dinner buffet, there isn't one but we really like dining in the main dining room and being waited on. With a new city everyday you do get tired so bring your walking shoes!

go to the restaurant for breakfast, same food but better atmosphere and no lines. Buy drink package - as long as you drink 2 drinks a day and get bottled water is better deal. Ask for seating on upper level -middle lower part of dining is like fish bowl and extremely loud - got reseated after day1

Wait for embarkation. It was a zoo when we got there. Spend the day in Venice and get to the ship towards the latter part of the afternoon. Or get your # first and come back later.

For debarcation, if you are tight on time to get to the airport or train station, talk to the service desk and they will put you in one of the first groups to debark. Also, you can get a non-alcoholic drink package deal if you ask for it.

On board is OK, at best. Take this cruise for the route!

Bring a lot of hand sanitizers because use of hand sanitizers in restaurants is not mandatory and only a few are provided throughout the ship.

You need to search for the Omelet station at breakfast and carving station at lunch. The all inclusive drink package is worth it.
