Pack a book or a deck of cards as the daily activities are not great.

Don't bring too much clothing
If you haven’t sailed on the Diamond before it takes a bit to get used to but halfway through the cruise I loved it.
Just sit back and enjoy your cruise and go to the shows they are incredible
Don't bother, look for a similar itinerary on a different cruise line.
Don't go on a Princess Ship.....very medicore compared to other lines. 2nd bad experience.
Unlike some of the ships in this class, they don't have the small pastry / specialty hot drinks area in the atrium, but they do have a sushi restaurant.
Book the Port side. The Starboard side received much of the water into the cabin from what I learned. Upgrade to the Club Class. Well worth it. The not waiting for a table daily made the difference.
One thing we enjoyed was the big screen TV out at the pool area. we had nice warm weather on our cruise, so they showed movies most of the day, and into the night if you wanted to watch. It was fun. We did get to watch the Super Bowl all day on that screen, and it was great. They made popcorn, and appetizers for us so it was fun.
Try and no where everything is and meet people and try different foods
Book Port Side for balconies to avoid smell if you are midships fed or fed
Do it, have fun and relax.
Book early for the steakhouse restaurant.g
Wheelhouse Bar, happy hour twice a day buy one get one for $1. Can buy bottle beer and leave unopened to take back to cabin!
Princess is always a great cruise line. We were a little disappointed there was no International Cafe, but we survived. In 2016 we stepped away from Princess and went the Royal Caribbean route. Royal was ok, much more to offer but overall we are a Princess family and that's where we will stay for now on, especially now that we have reached Platinum status.
Check to make sure your ship has been renovated within the last two or three years.
Look for the Wake Bar.
