All purchases or charges on the ship and Castaway Cay will be charge to your Key to the World card/room account. The only cash/credit card need is at the other ports of call.
Take a large cup with a lid to fill at the drink stations. The cups provided are very small.
You don't need to bring towels to the beach on Castaway Cay everything is provided... You can bring your own bottled water on board...
Bring a light jacket or long sleeve shirt for the fireworks show which takes place at 10:30 and when I went in late March, it was a little chilly outside at that time.
Go to guest services and get yourself a map of the whole ship and figure out forward and aft.
I loved our room overlooking the back of the ship, I want to stay on this level in the near future.
Deck 10 is nice because it is close to the pool and all the action but, it is under the pool deck! If you are a light sleeper I would suggest going to floor 9 because you will not hear all of the walking and partying going on upstairs. I sleep light and the commotion kept me up.
just sit back and enjoy
Cabana's on deck 11 has the best breakfast ever.
Go concierge if you can!
The breakfast on the cabana was fast not to many Waiting on line.
Don't miss the buffet when you first get on the cruise before it leaves port. They had all you can eat shrimp, crab claws, prime rib, lamb chops and more.
Be prepared that you need to spend less time for sleeping.
Expect the children to rule the ship. If you are not a fan of the little ones, try another cruise line.
Recommend bringing your own custome for priate night. What they offer in the shops is pricy. Only disappointment was photo pkg we purchased in advance (PhotoBook). Let's just say the computer method was not user friendly. Buying full pkg for a little more would have been better deal.

Make sure you stick to a plan so you don't miss anything that the cruise offers
if you suffer from motion sickness... be prepared. Dramamine, Sea Bands and the patches are a good thing to have and to take before you start to feel bad.
