Make sure your hands are clean before eating. Try to get on deck for walks and get some sunshine. Be aware the walls are thin and your voice carries. Try to visit all of the ship and find what area you feel most comfortable in. There is so much to do and you probably won't have time for it all. Book tours before you leave from home so you won't be disappointed when they fill up. Patches are available from your Doctor in the form of a prescription if you think you may have a problem with the motion of the ship. Try and meet other people and make new friends. Try different foods in the dining room and enjoy everything that is offered. There are so many tours available and it is fun to try something new.
It may not be the biggest and grandest of ships but if you just enjoy what they offer you will have a great time. The hospitality and friendliness of everyone more than makes up from what you may think is lacking.
Don't go on this ship expecting to be constantly entertained. This is all about the ports of call (specifically Havana) and interacting with other guests and the crew. We met so many wonderful people on this cruise that we enjoyed talking to and running into constantly because there are not too many places to go. We also got to talk with many of the officers on the ship, which was a real treat.
We loved being near the aft elevator. We never had to wait long and the ship is so small there's not a long walk to either end. For Cuba starboard side is actually better for viewing as port is not very attractive.
