For food lovers out there, i highly recommend: - horizion buffet (mashed potato with beef stew) - pizza (yummy, cheesy & thin)

Only use Princess tours as a last resort or outside vendors don't offer a tour. Find options through websites well in advance. We used Cruise Critic to connect with other folks and we toured and transferred with them. We didn't feel that the specialty restaurants had any value ($29/person).

Try to source own excursions and be prepared for on board spending to be more that other cruise lines.

Make your own arrangements rather than using the airport transfer. You can personalize to your particular flight plans and probably even save money.

Stay away of this ship. Ship is good, however its services are bad.

I have an account via www.SendOutCards.com/cards247 to send customised postcards and cards to people whilst I am on the cruise.

JAPANESE STYLE TOILETS WHICH ARE INSTALLED IN SOME CABINS ARE AN EXPERIENCE WORTH THE TRIP. SAILING OUT OF JAPANESE PORTS IS A GREAT EXPERIENCE WITH DOCKSIDE ENTERTAINMENT/MUSICAL SENDOFF-NOT TO BE MISSED

IF you're doing anytime seating, make reservations in the morning to avoid waiting for a table for dinner - esp. with a party of 6+.

Bring your own hair dryer unless you actually like those crappy ones that are attached to the wall.
